Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - 1. Student interaction with Administration: I run into Deans and have lunch with them all the time. 2. Unparalleled clinical experience: so say intern alumni and seniors on externships who compare themselves with students from other programs. 3. Atmosphere: Relaxed, cooperative/supportive (student-student, resident-student and staff-student). We have LOTS of fun (I mean, hey! it's New Orleans!). - The administration and staff are very receptive to student input and discussion. Also, I feel they all take a genuiune interest in our learning and general well being. - The faculty is very open to student suggestions. I feel like my opinion is wanted and welcomed here. New Orleans and the opportunity to do rotations in Charity hospital. You will see all kinds of unique and interesting pathology. - Excellent clinical and basic science teaching. - You'll hear this over and over with Tulane: the student body is the biggest strength. In what other med school will you find such a smart, laid back, group of people? We have a great time together in a VERY fun city, the atmosphere is non-competitive, and we end up doing very well in the match. I'd also have to say that the clinical experience afforded by our patient population is excellent. On away rotations I've been complimented on my clinical skills--things that seem like kindergarten to me because I've seen and done so much at Tulane. - New Orleans is a great place to live during these tough years....work hard, play hard. Great clinical experiences with wide diversity of patients....learn to become extremely comfortable with variety of patients/situations. - The students are all really supportive and friendly. It's very non-cutthroat. Also, New Orleans is a fun city to live in. - Very student-friendly environment. Staff and proffessors are very supportive. I can't imagine going any where else.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - First two years could be more progressive. But the faculty and administration is exceptionally responsive to student input (i.e., it's getting better every year). - Students are not as active in community work and medically-related issues outside of the academics as I had anticitpated. - Some of the people in my class. Everyone seem like they are from Upper middle class and white! Would like more diversity. Also, they are not any open gay people. Once again, would just like more diversity here - Lack of formal mentorship. - The tuition! This is an expensive school, but I think the price is offset somewhat by the fact that New Orleans is really cheap. Library has really been a problem, but they're fixing it now (right as I leave). - Very expensive....one of highest debt burdens in U.S. Other schools probably prepare student better for USMLE. - My main gripe with Tulane right now (as a 4th year) is that I feel I have very little guidance as far as applying for residency. We don't have any mentor program, and it's hard to get the surgeons to sit down for a meeting since they're busy. When I talk to friends from other schools, it seems like they have a better system, and I feel like I'm sort of left to fend for myself. - The grading system.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - Overall, living and studying in New Orleans is a true pleasure! I have been able to really enjoy myself in my free time. Everyone I know has grown to love it down here, making the hard work easier. - New Orleans is fun and the city makes for a great escape when you need a break from school. - If you are looking for a research environment, this is not it. If you are interested in primary care, the environment is very supportive, but a large number of us still specialize. Volunteering in the community is mandatory in years 1 and 2 (20 hours required, but most of us will do double or triple that because the programs are so much fun and we get a lot out of it). Don't bring your competitive pre-med attitude here! It will not be tolerated! This school is for people who want to have a good time while working with an underserved population in a really unique environment. - If I had to do it all again, I'd probably still come to Tulane. - Other than that, I think Tulane is a great place. We get a good education in a great environment. Good patient mix, and there are not many other places where you get an experience like you do at Charity hospital.
