What are your general comments?

"They sent me to the wrong building for my interview. Upon learning this, I had to run to the new building on Robertson St. (I still arrived 10 min late for the opening comments). Thankfully, the admissions office (in particular, Ms. Vargas) was quite friendly, and they helped me out a ton. I interviewed with Dr. Beckman. She is a little quirky, but overall a very nice woman. Just roll with the punches with her and you'll do great. The student interview has equal weight with the faculty interview! If this place is your top choice, be sure to come across that way. They are really looking for applicants who want to come here, not just people who put Tulane on their AMCAS in addition to 15 other schools. " Report Response
