What impressed you negatively?

"My first interviewer totally forgot that she was supposed to interview me, and was in another part of town. Fortunately, I called the admissions office and they set me up with another interviewer." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I went to Tulane as an undergrad, so I knew about a lot of the problems involved with post-Katrina rebuilding and a lot about the area. I also had a friend who is a student take me on a quick tour and point out where to park. Unfortunately, the garages only take cash, so I had to go on a hunt for an atm. So bring cash." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone was so helpful and energetic, and I was impressed by the fact that I kept hearing that the school was not cutthroat or competitive. People send out study guides to the entire class before all of the exams. There's also so much hands-on experience even in the first year, given that standardized patients begin in the first year. The admissions committee meets every Tuesday and makes decisions on a rolling basis. The major thing that I got is that the interviews are geared towards getting to know who you are as a person and who you will be as a doctor. The interview is supposed to be closed file, but my first interviewer opened with a question about my dad, so I knew she'd already read my file." Report Response
