What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student the night before, which was really helpful and allowed me to relax. That morning, we met in the conference room and two second years talked about their experiences. After that, we had 3 interviews (two faculty and one student), which were more like conversations than interviews. If you have Dr. Owens, don't be surprised if the interview is a little more abrupt (he asked me 3 questions and then just wanted to know what questions I had... we didn't click all that well). There is some down time in between the different interviews, but the other interviewees and I just chatted. Overall, I loved Tulane and I will be thrilled if I get in!" Report Response
