How did you prepare for the interview?

"Tulane's website, looked at this site" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"It's amazing how friendly everyone at the school is. When I got there the 2nd year students were all outside a classroom cramming for an exam they had in 30 minutes. When they saw me (I guess my outfit gave me away) they put their books down and came over to talk to me about the school. Also, the clinical experience you get here is hard to match. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I am now a walking Tulane endorsement, I loved everything about the school. It's true that some of the facilities are old but the atmosphere and clinical opportunities make this almost a non-issue." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They are doing construction on I-10 and it takes forever to get to the airport!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Relax, the only way to not enjoy yourself is to be stressed for no reason. The day went as follows: two interviews with faculty and lunch with a student. During one of the interviews no questions were asked at all, it was simply a relaxing conversation about Peru (we had both spent time there recently). The other interview I think was supposed to be open-file but the interviewer wasn't prepared so it started off with the normal questions and ended up in a lecture on why Ronald Reagan was a great president (I think this one ruined my chances). The student lunch was somewhat short due to the fact that they had exams the next day, but all the students are extremely nice. Basically they spend the day selling Tulane to you and they do a great job. It is now my top choice." Report Response
