What do you like most?
"Being from New Orleans, I love that TUSOM cares deeply about our local community and strives to care for our disadvantaged populations. Even as first or second-year students, we had the opportunity to gain valuable experience interviewing and examining patients by volunteering at the various student-run clinics located throughout New Orleans. The faculty are incredible practitioners and teachers who want to see you succeed; however, they expect students to take initiative, display an appropriate level of self-reliance, and be advocates for themselves. TUSOM was a great choice for me because I tend to learn the basics better on my own and rely on instruction to clarify points or misunderstandings. If you are a student who typically needs a rigid structure or constant hand-holding, then other programs may be a better fit"
"School goes way out of it's way to make sure the students are as happy as possible. While we pay a ton for tuition we do get a lot of amazingly planed events with lots of free booze."
"Student body is amazing and supportive."
"As far as I can tell there is no other school that provides as many leadership and clinical opportunities to first and second year students. Also, the pass/fail system means that you can enjoy your classmates and your surroundings without having to constantly scrounge for extra points."
"I like the environment set up by the faculty, administration and students. My classmates come from diverse backgrounds and have more life experience than I was expecting to see."
"Tulane has a wonderful, laid-back atmosphere (for a medical school). The faculty really holds your hand through the first year, most of the class is easy to get along with, and it's in New Orleans!"
