What are your general comments?

"Interviews - one faculty, one with chaplain, one with second year student. The one with faculty went really well -ended up talking about the recall election in CA and where to work out in New Orleans. Very impressed with the diversity and caliber of the student body. The Reilly fitness center is amazing. There is plentiful inexpensive housing there. My interviewers were super nice - although I'm sure they are to everyone, so it's hard to read my chances. My student host was incredible - I highly recommend it. She gave me a tour of the city and showed me anything I was interested in. There just seems to be a camaraderie there and so many resources for students. Tulane is now in my top 3." Report Response
