What impressed you positively?

"Students seemed happy overall. Also, the French Quarter is a lot of fun; definitely extend your trip by an extra day or two if possible. The faculty interviewers that I had were very easy to talk to and had good insight into various aspects of the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities seemed run down and a bit depressing. The students pressed home the point that the reason to go to Tulane is New Orleans rather than the school itself." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There can be a lot of walking from interview to interview (different buildings, different blocks). Walking + heat + humidity = sweat." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is a great first interview to have: the faculty interviewers are kind and thoughtful, and not out to try to trip you up. The French Quarter is a lot of fun, and it is worth spending at least one full night out there. I would suggest you ask about their specific plans to expand their research facilities if you are not impressed with what you see -- they might be constructing something soon that suits your interests."
