"practiced my smile and nod, put on my Tulane status-quo face!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The new dirty-oil-donated facilities are nice; they finally found a good Dean who will hopefully weed out the bad and whip all the slackers into shape -- looks like he has already promoted those key stakeholders who would be the first to leave if offered a lucrative position elsewhere!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tulane has a very privileged student body, which seems highly ironic considering the patient populations they aim to serve... maybe this is character building?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Almost all the Deans are Jewish snowbirds -- a typical ORM at not only the University but at US medical schools in general -- including the new one apparently. A required research thesis at Tulane is laughable, but the gap-year requirements for admissions are intriguing ideas that should be explored further." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"How about accepting fewer matriculants from the usual defaults, while increasing the number of in-state and disadvantaged students? While you're at it, be more selective about those of us who are your MS or ACP cash-cows. Get rid of Father Don and his poor judgment of character entirely or at least reduce his influence on the committee. Stop being so cavalier about the real costs (>70K!), especially when the Financial Aid Office has been an utter disaster LONG BEFORE KATRINA came along. Speaking of scapegoating, scrap that TERRIBLE online secondary because surely you don't want to make it readily apparent that the school really is a organizational, bureaucratic nightmare -- honestly, the health sciences programs would be much better off as an independent institution no longer affiliated with the Tulane name.
