  1. Hi everyone, I just received an interview invite from the Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans. You can imagine my excitement, it's like a child after having coffee the first time. I was wondering if anyone has any experience concerning, or has heard about Tulane's interview and program? Thank you! For those wondering: My first cycle was a 3.66/4.0, MCAT 513, sciences: 130,130, cars: 127 and psy/soc: 126. Crappy written statement (no idea what and how to write).

  6. Hi everyone, My friend suggested I join and look around on the forums here and it's been a great help. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a rough idea about what my chances are for getting into anything. I'm applying under the EDP for Tulane, and hoping to complete an MD/MBA program there. I also wanted to get an opinion on the best school for me to apply through the EDP. In terms of numbers my GPA is a 3.71/4.0, I'm doing my 5th year of Biological Sciences (honours program) at the University of Calgary. MCAT was a 513 (first year of new exam), wrote it once, 130 on
