"sdn, read secondary" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Absolutely everything! They had just built a new medical school building that was not damaged during Katrina, so the facilities will be brand new. Also, the students and faculty are some of the nicest people that I've ever met. Everything is really laid back and ran smoothly. Students would stop in the hallways just to talk to you and would stick around until your student interviewer arrived. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Just the fact that we couldn't see the facilities/city-but that's completely understandable. Also, the Baylor students aren't nice (they are kind of stuck-up)...so don't expect them to stop and talk to you. There is a BIG difference between Baylor students and Tulane students!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How positive everyone was...I wish that I had initially been excited about Tulane because they deserved that-but as soon as the day started, I immediately was excited! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Initially, I went to the interview not really being excited because of everything that had happened with Katrina. However, after the day I spent with Tulane students and faculty, I can honestly say, this is the best school I have ever been to. The students are absolutely amazing and so enthustiastic inspite of everything that they have been through. I have interviewed at multiple schools and have had multiple acceptances, but I can honestly say, nothing compares to Tulane! I've never encountered such a great group of students and faculty. Dr. Beckman (assistant dean) is incredibly nice and very honest. The student interview was great and probably was one of the greatest selling points. I received my acceptance letter about a week after the interview-so it was great to have a speedy response! " Report Response
