What impressed you positively?

"The enthusiasm of students. I met two 4th years, on the way to my second interview, who gave me their take on school at Tulane. The two 2nd years who gave the tour were great as well. The lunch with a 2nd year student was also a nice touch. It gave me a chance to hear a personal story of how this student adjusted to life in medical school." Report Response

"Seeing the state of the city first-hand gave me more information. I am able to better gauge how I would feel being there for 4 years. Wear comfortable shoes, you will be walking a fair amount." Report Response
