How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over SDN. Did a couple mock interviews. Spent the entire weekend in NOLA playing outside because it was BEAUTIFUL outside!!!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"This is by far my favorite place EVER! The interviews were VERY laid-back. My faculty interview was open-file because I interviewed with Dr. Beckman, but the rest are closed-file. They really seem interested in getting to know you as a person and making sure you are a good fit for Tulane. I think the student interview was the most "difficult" only because it was over lunch and semi-awkward." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Um...lunch was a little disappointing. BUT...it was free!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Can't really think of anything. I did a lot of research on Tulane before heading down and knew what I was getting myself into. But some might say I'm quite the Tulane fanatic...some other interview candidates even pointed that out to me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Spend more time in NOLA than just the day of your interview. In fact, faculty emphasized how much they wanted us to do that. The school is definitely "work hard, play hard", and they really maintain that students should stay involved in outside interests. I absolutely LOVE Tulane but definitely think it's a school that "fits" some and not others. That's really up for the individual to decide..." Report Response
