What are your general comments?

"Interviews were very laid back. My first interviewer asked me literally 2 questions: tell me about yourself, and why do you want to be a doctor. He spent the rest of the time talking about plans for the hospital and program when they move back to NO. Second interviewer was great, really nice guy, basically just went through some of the topics on the interview sheet (family, interests, why tulane, etc). They don't plan to move back to NO until next school year, mainly so the 3rd and 4th years won't have to worry about a lack of patients. They are finishing work on a new building for the 1st and 2nd years that will be ready by the time they move back. Plans to intergrate curriculum are moving faster, since most department heads are now all working in the same office. This interview really sold me on Tulane. The students and faculty are amazing, and I think they will be able to transition back to New Orleans successfully." Report Response
