What are your general comments?

"Tulane, like the city of N.O., is very laid back. No need to get stressed out! The interview was held at the new building on Poydras St. that they hope to be moved into by next August (very nice building). It started at 8:00 with an introduction by a 2nd and 4th year student. The faculty arrived about 9:30 and there were two one-on-one interviews, one open and the other closed file. After the interviews we all had lunch and were done about 1:00. It was obvious that all the faculty loved the city and were excited at the opportunity to be there during this rebuilding process. It was hard not to share their same enthusiam after the interview. The most important advice I can give is make sure your generally famaliar with the city and its rebuilding. I could tell it was a huge advantage that I was living there and could relate to all the stories. I would recommend going to one of the local news website (wdsu.com or wwltv.com) or the Times-Picayune website." Report Response
