What impressed you positively?

"Almost everything. They students were people I could see myself being friends with. The school has strong ties with the local population, much of which is underserved. You can get clinical experience almost immediatley." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It is expensive, but then again so is every private med school. People complain about the city being dirty, run down, etc. but this is New Orleans, its an old city. The unique culture more than makes up for a lack of cleanliness. I don't like closed-file interviews." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You find out about your status (accepted, rejected, etc.) within two weeks, which is awesome (i.e. they dont feel the need to spend multiple months jerking you around). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Basically, I didn't know much about Tulane prior to the interview, and the laid-back atmosphere of the school and the great students were a true breath of fresh air. One of my interviewers was very by-the-book and somewhat rigid, but the other was one of the coolest guys I have met in a long time. The student interviewer was super nice and empathetic. A wonderful experience." Report Response
