What impressed you positively?

"Everyone at Tulane is immensely friendly! I stayed overnight with a student host and she was incredibly nice - she wouldn't even let me buy her dinner, so I saved a lot of money on the trip as a whole. The students seem very relaxed and happy at Tulane. The French Quarter is amazing - I really recommend interviewees walk around and get a feel for the city - some people don't like it, but I thought it was very vibrant and charming." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Take the city bus to the school! The bus is the E2 - it picks you up on platform 7 (ask someone) and it's $1.60 to Tulane - it drops you off RIGHT IN FRONT of the student residence hall (ie - right across from the admissions building). You will save a lot of money and get to know New Orleans people a bit better than if you take a cab." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience is very laid back and everyone at the school is incredibly friendly. Come prepared with questions since the assistant dean of admissions will come and ask what you want him to talk about (he'll probably remember you better if you are one of the active ones). Read the interview memorandum ahead of time (they give it to you in the interview folder) since it really explains their interview policy and why they ask some personal questions. " Report Response
