What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"One of my interviews was open file. The Tulane med school is not that close to the French Quarter or its undergrad campus. Also, the airport shuttle is a lot cheaper than taxi's. The medical center is set up like a dyslexic blind man made up the numbers- make sure you know where to go prior to your interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think it went well overall. The associate dean of admissions told us that they read SDN and that the person who said that the class is full is a lying bastard. They are brutally honest at Tulane which is refreshing. Some people will love it and some people will hate it, that's why you're at the interview. My interviews were sort of reversed, they kept asking "So, what else would you like to know?" I think we spent 20minutes on me and 40 minutes on the history of Louisiana. Really laidback. Also, they say that the interviews are closed file, but my first interviewer had my file and he drew a map of local restaurants on the back of the first page and gave it to me. My second interviewer didn't even know my name. Also, I think the interviews were supposed to be 30 minutes, but my first one went for an hour, it's just good that I didn't have a second interview back to back. The student interview was really relaxing and fun. I mostly just asked him how he felt about Tulane and he talked so much he forgot to eat. " Report Response
