What was the most interesting question?

"The interviewer asking me when I got to Tulane (I spent the weekend there); the interviewer telling me how I clearly didn't value the school because I didn't spend more than a few days there (I was a full time student) and that I was just wasting everyone's time by even being there." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Reading about Tulane and reading SDN." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"My student interviewer was a nice relieve from the rest of the day. HATED TULANE." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"EVERYTHING. Admins weren't involved in interview day (we were shown some admins via video). Highly elitist attitude (everyone I met was white and people at Tulane-- including admin--kept talking about how they were saving the "indigent" people and referred to NOLA as the third world (NOLA is mainly black). Students seemed SUPER stressed; admitted that few volunteering opps. existed (although they were supposed to do a certain # of hours every semester); students kept talking about drinking; students admitted to the school not having that many resources and so not being able to do that much; the med school shares NOLA with another med school on the very same street; their main hospital (Charity) has been closed; my faculty interviewer seemed super racist and told me to leave in 5 minutes after asking me questions that mainly pertained to my race and no questions whatsoever that related to why I wanted to be a doctor or medical experiences (I reported my experience to AAMC anonymously-- and the white male who interviewed after me had a SUPER different and friendly experience as opposed to my interviewer asking me illegal questions); my student interviewer was super nice, but had the attitude of why would you want to come here? My interviewer told me there were no research opps. (although I wonder if this is true)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That reading about Tulane on SDN and online was incredibly misleading from what I saw and experienced in person (in a very bad way)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I hated Tulane and the admissions can certainly put in a LOTTTTTT more effort to not come off as racist and detached from the whole process. Several people left my interview day with the attitude they'd never attend here." Report Response
