What impressed you positively?

"the clinicals are amazing. I applied to tulane because of Charity hospital, and it truly is the best place to do clinicals. the students are some of the happiest, chill students in the country. my interview was on the last day of finals, and the students had 1 final left and everybody was just chillin' in the student lounge playing pool and watching ESPN." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the price. some people say the facilities are run down, but realize this med school is in downtown New Orleans, not Beverly Hills. The inside of the hospitals are real nice and they are moving the med school classes to a new building. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The 4 year MD/MPH and the elective requirement during your 2nd semester of 1st year. Tulane wants to diversify their class, and really doesnt want just an all-science pre-med. they are about individuality, and they expect you to express that while you are in med school. I heard Tulane was great, but I didnt realize how much freedom students had." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Best interview experience one could imagine. The 3 interviews were all laid back. there only 2 questions that were medically related (the one i posted) and why medicine? I talked about sports, religion, politics, what i like to do for fun. The student interview was awesome cause I got to chill with a persian student (im persian so we hit it off). i met alot of students and i heard nothing bad about the school. the students were a little stressed cause it was the last day of finals, but everyone was talking about the party they are going to have tonight (which interviewees were invited to). Tulane is definitely one of my top choices after the interview. Oh yea, the match list is extremely impressive, and they get people into the namey residency programs. A major reason Tulane has a very impressive match list can be attributed to the fact that clinicals are done at Charity Hospital. Prestige in a school is not necessarily the best thing, clinicals are more important." Report Response
