What impressed you negatively?

"New Orleans isn't a very nice area. The students seem a little TOO laid-back ... I got the impression that very few even attend class. The on-campus student housing looks like a mental institution (the whole building seemed like a very depressing place)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the day really does get done early (2-ish), so I didn't have to book my flight for the evening. There wasn't much to do within walking distance of the school, so I had a lot of down time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started pretty early. We met with two fourth year students and got to ask them questions about the school. Then, we met (former) Dean Pisano, who talked for us for 45 minutes about the school. He is really friendly and outgoing ... it's too bad that he retired (I hear that he is responsible for what the school is today). Lunch was nice because we got to pick what we wanted from a menu in the morning. There were lots of options. The student interview was a little awkward for me. It occurred over lunch, but the student interviewer had already eaten lunch, so I was trying to answer questions between bites. My first faculty interviewer was awesome. He seemed genuinely interested in my research and schoolwork. My second interviewer was that cranky old retired navy guy. He's a character. I just sat there listening to him swear and tell stories, hahaha. I didn't really get to say much, but oh well. Ladies, beware! Dress conservatively because he WILL comment on your outfit if you have him as an interviewer. I was told that I looked very mature, but others in the interview group were scolded/chewed out by him because of their outfit. The tour was in the afternoon. Overall, the school was okay, but I just didn't leave feeling very impressed." Report Response
