What impressed you negatively?

"Certain areas of New Orleans were still, as expected still under construction. The national guard was actually in that day to help out the New Orleans Police Officers with the crime in the bad areas, property theft and so forth so you know crime is bad. But hey, what city isnt? The medical school is a little bit antecedent, but keep in mind, the whole medical school is in progress (I believe) to be completely moved over to a completely brand new building and will be done by the next incoming class year. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you have a student host, check to see how far away his or her place is in relationship to the school. Because this means, you have to call a cab in advance and earlier to get to the interview place on time. Cabs definitely helped. United Cab is the one I used. " Report Response

"I went overtime on my first and last interview from just talking. My second interviewer was an older doctor, but he reminded me of my grandfather, and in the end, he clasped my hands and muttered very encouraging words. I had such a great time. My heart is back at Tulane. Hopefully I'll return there to get it. " Report Response
