What are your general comments?

"This was a completely relaxing atmosphere. All of the staff and interviewers were so friendly and eager to give the applicants a good experience. The interviews themselves were less stressful than any interview I have ever had. In one I barely talked about academics at all. I did think that the student interview over lunch was a bit awkward. It was a weird hybrid of a social situation and a professional interaction. My student interviewer actually asked me more difficult questions than my other interviewers. Overall it seemed like everyone really wanted to get a feel for why you wanted to go to Tulane and if you would attend if accepted. Be honest when asked "Why Tulane?" but definitely don't be shy about stressing how strong your interest is if you really want to attend." Report Response
