What impressed you positively?

"The dynamics between the school and its students is great. The students seem very happy with their choice and are very closely knit with one another. The new building across from the Superdome is very nice but I don't know if it's just an office building or if they'll be able to use it for lectures or classes. But the student lounge in that new building looks great. As for the facilities in the other buildings that were 6 feet under water at a point, they look much better than I expected. All in all, the students were the main attraction and from my student interview and other testimonials, the school works to help their students in every way possible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The area around the Medical District at night seemed deserted. I walked around for an hour looking for a place to get some food, any food, for dinner the night I arrived there and finally found a Dominos about 10 blocks away from my hotel. I get the feeling that most students have a car out of necessity (for groceries, eating out, etc). Charity Hospital is massive, but will not be brought back up. Someone actually told me that they wanted to fix up a small area or a wing of the hospital, but noone else could confirm. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the initial interview site early and got myself acquainted with the other 5 interviewees. A third year student later came by and started telling us about Tulane and answering questions. Later he was joined by the Associate Dean, Marc Kahn, and he helped answer some questions as well. I wish I had something to ask but it just so happened that someone else asked a question I wanted to ask right before I was about to do the same thing. Not that it mattered much, I got the information I needed. Next was the first interview which lasted around 20 minutes. Afterwards, they gave us about half an hour to find our next interviewer's room . I used the time to look around the building. After the second interview, I headed to the student lounge and got a chance to talk to a bunch of students, who were very welcoming. My student interviewer was a little late but I was able to use that time to talk to students in the lounge a little more. After all the interviews, it was time to relax and go on the tour around the school. The Embryological Museum is amazing. Tulane is in great shape and in a year, it will be even better."
