What impressed you positively?

"Kindness of people I met, the fact that students upon seeing my interview attire stopped ME in the hallway to tell me about the school and ask about me, meeting 3rd year student at the admissions office to start off the day, getting to see anatomy lab, collegiality between students and faculty, embyrology exhibit." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"First interviewer really rushed me with standard questions, to which I never felt able to get in all that I wanted before he was off to a new question. Second interviewer asked me questions, then interrupted me to talk about himself and the navy. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Generally the interview day was a low stress day. The "interviews" totally vary from one interviewer to another. Beware the interviewer that talks about his navy experience and stops you when you answer his question. He is hard to get into a conversation with but that's just his style. The student interview was not really an interview--we just talked about the city and the student's family life. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was hard to come away from these interviews knowing how I did. Apparently I did well because I now have an acceptance. That said, the interview day allowed me to see that Tulane has a very rounded and dynamic student body that didn't put on a show simply for the admissions office. People were very kind. I'm psyched about the possibilities of doing clinical work and volunteering from year one. There are also lots of volunteer opportunities in the city. " Report Response
