What impressed you positively?

"Except for one interviewer, everyone was VERY nice to me (including all of the students, staff and faculty) I was taken into one of the anatomy labs by a professor and got see talk to and see the first year students in action dissecting cadavers. It seems they also have many very cool international opportunities as well as an awesome MPH program." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was a little suprised when one of my interviewers asked me about my grades and MCAT score as I stepped into the door. During the orientation it seemed to me the school really prided itself on blindly assessing the "soft" qualities of canidates. This same interviewer also cut me off a couple of times, which was very frusterating. I feel this interview was not a good representation of me at all. " Report Response

"I didn't have any logistical problems, although I wish I could have stayed one or two more days in New Orleans to check everything out.." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview was a good experience. I'm not sure if it is the place for me though. I got some mixed signals between the information the dean presented to us and one of my interviewers (see below). Just about everyone was very nice to me and the students seem very happy to be at Tulane." Report Response
