What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed enthusiastic about the school, the city, and each other. Though the facilities were dilapidated, Dr. Kahn did show us blueprints for a beautiful new building to be completed in time for the incoming class. Tulane emphasizes early clinical exposure, and many students opt for the 4 year combined MD-MPH program. Also, they let us choose from a lunch menu in the morning -- nice touch!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There didn't seem to be much diversity in the student body. Many of the students, while perfectly nice, also came off as being a bit generic. The tour guide seemed like an undignified frat boy, but, to his credit, he answered questions very well. Unfortunately, the area surrounding the school is very dangerous." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class is full. Tulane shamelessly continues to interview without telling applicants that they are vying for a waitlist spot at best. If I had known, I would not have wasted the money or the time. Very poor form, Tulane. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were wonderfully relaxed. I had the retired military guy who swore and commented on my clothes (positively, thankfully); but after initially sizing me up, he warmed considerably. " Report Response
