What impressed you positively?

"THE PEOPLE!!!! That is a fantastic bunch of kids down there. Everyone was so welcoming and nice. I could have a beer with anyone that I met - except for the tour guide, see below. DO THE STUDENT HOST PROGRAM and STAY AT DEMMING!!! My host was known by all of my interviewers so that helped get the synergy rolling. Yes, Charity Hospital is most likely going to be closed but that is actually a good thing. It was the only place indignant patients could get care and it caried the stigma associated with that. Now the dollars will follow the patients and they can go where they can - which will most likely be Tulane. The students say that their education has not really been impacted and morale is very high. There are some clinical hiccups right now for the 3rd years but that will be worked out shortly as new partner hospitals are being added. Other hospitals are ready to open as soon as they have adequate RN staff available. And there's the French Quarter....." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My tour guide was the only downer I met. She was very unprofessional and I would not want her as my doc. But she was the only blemish on an otherwise fantastic visit." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How great and diverse the student body was. That is a serious selling point. All grades are pass/fail and everyone works as a team. The other surprising thing is that no one else in my group took advantage of the Student Host Program. This is an awesome way to get out and meet people and really get a feel for life at Tulane. Definitely go for the optional room at Demming (the student dorm) for $50. Then you've got your own place to crash when you want. My host also lived in Demming so it was perfect. Instructions for everything are in the interview invite email." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Extremely positive. The only thing that would keep me out of Tulane is an offer from my state school which is $80k cheaper over 4 years. And even then, I'd be thinking long and hard about because I had so much fun being out with everyone. Tulane is the kind of place that just felt like it fit me. Be yourself and see what happens."
