What impressed you positively?

"The students are really happy. They are devoted to medicine but they are interesting to no end. I interviewed on a friday when they have "Music in Medicine"...a lunchtime event where students with talent perform for whoever wants to come watch. People were cheery and talkative in the student lounge, wearing cowboy hats, playing the guitar. The students are not stressed out." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the med school buildling is kind of like a maze and kind of old looking. However, I go to tulane now and I don't place much importance on the appearance of the building...also, we are moving to a brand new building on Poydras soon." Report Response

"That the lunch interview with the student would be fun and not stressful at all. I had been really worried about it but it was probably the nicest part of my day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I didn't expect to love Tulane, but after I left it was one of my top choices. The tour guide was a little random...she kept wanting to end the tour at JOe's bar which I found really inappropriate but hilarious...but that is just how Tulane students are. They want you to know that they still have fun and enjoy being around each other even though they study a lot. The interview day may leave you with a lot of free time. My best advice is to go to the student lounge around noon to talk to the students and to observe them with each other. Tulane has a lot to offer being in New Orleans, both int erms of hands-on clinical experiences but also in culture...even after Katrina, it will be a great city to learn in." Report Response
