"Getting to go to the anatomy labs - other schools I applied at didn't allow that. The embryology museum was cool but a little freaky." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"After Dr. Pisano explained that the interviewers were just interested in getting to know us, my interviewers asked about MCAT, GPA and not much else." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much time we would be left on our own for "exploring" the school. Also would have set aside time to go to one of the hospitals and the school of public health." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was OK. I actually expected to like it more than I did. Tulane seems to try hard to come off as laid back, into diversity (which I'm sure it is), but it rang a little false when the bulk of my interview was stat-based stuff (MCAT, GPA, etc.) I don't feel like they learned anything about me that wasn't already in my file."
