    I am regular decision. According to threads from past years and MSAR, Tulane doesn't prescreen so I wouldn't be concerned. They probably just send it out in batches based on regions or something.

    There is a prompt for listing leadership positions in clubs or organizations you may have held during college. I was wondering if I should include leadership positions I held at my job, such as being a trainer? Or do y'all think they are specifically asking about school-related clubs and orgs?

    I think if you held that position during college it’s fair game. Is being a trainer really a leadership position though? Were you a supervisor or something ?

    I was a trainer and a headwaiter at a restaurant. Headwaiters are in charge of checking all of the servers out at the end of the shift before they leave. I never know if I should count this but I don't really have any club or organization positions to talk about. I don't want to leave it blank sooooooo

    Anyone else's app say their letters of rec have not been received? They participate in the AMCAS letter service right? So if the primary has indicated that your letters were received to AMCAS should I be worried/contact Tulane or just wait it out?

    Me. Worst part is that in last years thread people were getting II's while others were still waiting on secondaries. I thought they didn't screen for secondaries. How is that fair?

    On the bright side, it gives you more motivation to pre write and perfect

    The prompts are the same as last year's and can be found in the Tulane 2017-2018 thread!

    Edit: For the main prompt that asks applicants to describe their interest in Tulane, would it be appropriate to comment on New Orleans culture? That's part of the reason why I am interested, but that doesn't seem Tulane specific enough.

    It would be great if there are any Tulane med students reading this that could comment on what type of person the school is looking for. I remember reading somewhere that they really want an applicant that wants to explore New Orleans culture.

    Hello people!
    For the second and third question, the question asks us to list the activities. did you guys just list it with no explanation or did you guys include explanations? 100 words isn't a lot... Also did you just repeat activities from AMCAS? I feel like im repeating myself

    Is everyone else just listing the hobbies and leadership positions? or would it be better to write a paragraph for it?

    I did a list for leadership and paragraph for hobbies. I just couldn’t bring myself to make a boring list about things I’m passionate about. My leadership is cut and dry.

    My application is marked as complete, but under "document status" it says that no recommendation letters have been submitted- anyone else getting this issue? If that's still there Monday I'll call and ask...
