What impressed you negatively?

"The med school building and the surrounding neighborhood -- I was harassed by a group of three "gangsta" type girls while waiting for the airport bus. My student interviewer was disinterested and shot awkward glances at me as I ate (she had already eaten). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"After reading on SDN that Tulane's class was full, I called to verify the situation. The Assistant Dean was a bit evasive, ultimately giving the indication that a few acceptances were being sent each week. Taking her word, I decided to go to the interview. When I arrived at the school, I was making small talk with the admissions secretary and learned from her that they were only giving waitlists or rejections. My two interviewers (only one of whom was on the committee) confirmed the secretary's account. Another interviewee who had different interviewers told me that they had said the same. I did not have an acceptance at the time, so I had no choice but to go. The entire situation is very dubious. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Morning info session with dean, two interviews, a "working lunch" with a student interviewer, and a tour. The med student I stayed with ordered the most expensive thing on the menu when I took her out for dinner (which, by the way, is suggested on the student host sheet that came as part of the interview letter)."
