What are your general comments?

"tulane is holding interviews in houston at baylor in the texas medical center. they will not be moving back to new orleans until next year which is unfortunate but understandable. the good news is that everything should be ready to go by the time the 2006 class enters anyway. there are two 30 minute faculty interviews. very laid back and conversational since they are closed file. they try to get a sense of you socially to see if you fit the spirit and attitude of the tulane's unique atmosphere. there is also an interview with a student over lunch that is designed to do the same. i can not put into words how genuine students and faculty really are. my two interviewers were awesome and every student i talked to was awesome. i had a pretty active social life during undergrad, and it looks like the student body maintains a work hard, play hard mentality that i am looking for. simply put, if i chose where i went to school based on the quality of the people, tulane would win hands down."
