How did you prepare for the interview?

"Visited New Orleans for the entire weekend before, the good and the bad. Definitely take the opportunity to stay with a medical student! They are honest and informative, plus we hung out for dinner with a bunch of other first years and really got a chance to feel comfortable and relax." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"They want you to feel at home and happy at Tulane. The school is very service-oriented and is very active in the community and in the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans. Everyone there was severely impacted by the hurricane, and this shows in their speech, their affect, and their dedication to helping people who are worse off. Tulane is an icon of social consciousness and positive community action; exactly the kind of place I want to be." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish my interviewers (at least 2 of the 3) were more carefully matched as far as sharing my interests and knowing about the programs and areas I am interested in. As it was, I found the interviews challenging because it was hard to find common ground. Likewise, I didn't feel as though 2 of my interviewers were really even receptive to what I was saying, even though I had met many, many other members of the faculty and student body who think exactly like I do and participate heavily in the activities and programs I would like to be a part of at Tulane." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had brought or purchased a map of New Orleans. As they will tell you, there is no such thing as North/South/East/West. The roads follow the curves of the river, thus making them run in all different directions depending on exactly where you are. If you don't know where that is, prepare to quickly become dreadfully lost. Another good reason to stay with a med student - they can come find you, pick you up, and bring you back home."
