  1. This schools is nuts! okay, so Im not ashamed to say that I got a rejection two months ago! with all honesty, I could careless!!!

    so today, my surprise, I open my mail from Tulane? I was like, it's thick, could they have made a mistake or something?!

    so I open the letter, and it says

    Dear Prospective student,

    Sorry you didn't make it to our school, why won't you enroll in our masters program and approve your application, so that you might have a chance next time!!!!

    I've already been accepteed to medical school, and I don't have to improve sh!t....your criteria is simply flawed...plain and simple!!!

    A$$holes...... <img src="graemlins/clappy.gif" border="0" alt="[Clappy]" />

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I received their brochure today.

    What a bunch of idiots! It's like they assume that if you don't get in their program, you won't be getting into med school.

    MCP Hahnemann does something similar. It's geared towards people who didn't get in anywhere but really want to go to medical school. All you had to do was look at the upper left hand side of the envelope and it probably says something like "Master's Program in Medical Sciences" or some crap like that. At least the MCPHU letter did. You basically couldn't mistake correspondence from the medical school with that from some other department. Anyway, if it was indistinguishable, that was a pretty dirty thing to do! Good luck guys!

    I'm on the waitlist and just got the letter as well. What are they thinking? Pretty low class stuff if you ask me.
  8. I said the same exact thing when I opened that letter - F...#$%&K you Tulane. Kiss my already been accepted to three schools ass!!!! Two of them ranked higher than Tulane.

    speaking of tulane being ******ed. i got interviews at harvard, ucsf, johns hopkins, stanford, dartmouth, oregon, georgetown, einstein, etc...., got accepted at a few places, and will be going to stanford (probably).
    and got rejected from tulane without interview. i laughed. if i get that "invitation to join our idiotic waste of time masters program" i will laugh again. don't feel bad folks.

    I'm probably gonna piss off a lot of people here... but Tulane treated me really well. They gave me a very early interview and an acceptance which saved me thousands of dollars in secondaries and interviews. Again - this was my experience only.

    With that said, I think it's messed up they would send you stuff like that, especially being on a wait list. I'll bet if you contact Pisano (dean of admissions), he'd be pissed, too. If you care enough, tell him so that people don't get the same crap next year.

    Sounds like really low class stuff. Sorry for the additional 'salt in the wounds'.

    It sucks that you got the letter, but like I said previously I also got it, and tulane accepted me around 2 months ago. It's funny how everyone knocks Tulane as if it were a low teir school. It's ranked 14 by the gourman report and has a great reputation in the medical field.

    You shouldn't take those recruitment letters personally. I've received them from several schools.

    In defense of Tulane, I'm guessing someone made a mistake on which mailing lists for that information to go out to. Even if they didn't, they probably just wanted to get the word out about their new post-bac program, not make a commentary on individual applicants' chances of getting into med school. For every person that received that info. and has 1 or more acceptances in hand, there are probably 2 or 3 people who have no acceptances -- some of them may find this post-bac info. really useful. It's a form-letter mailing, nothing else. Just like the poor wording of rejection letters sent out by tons of schools.

    rajneel -- you should be familiar enough with the admissions process by now to realize that a rejection or a waitlist by a particular school does not necessarily mean you are unqualified to attend that school, but rather can be an indication that you simply may not "match" with the class they are trying to build, or perhaps based on your application, they did not think you would be someone seriously interested in their program. I don't agree with that line of reasoning personally, but lots of schools seem to use it, and I can understand the need to, when they receive anywhere from 8,000-10,000 applications a year -- you have to cut that number down somehow.

    Anyways, I just think Tulane is a school with a lot of positive qualities and to those who are still waiting on this school, I wouldn't let this one experience sour you.

    I appreciated Tulane's expedience in letting me know 2 weeks after my interview that I was waitlisted. And I don't think that Tulane is bad school or anything. However I certainly didn't appreciate receiving that masters program letter. I thought at first that maybe it was actually an acceptance. I found it to be really insulting -- their way of saying, "You're not getting in here or anywhere else." I guess I'm just touchy right now. :(

    I so can understand why you got so angry. What a slap in the face. It's like hey.. we don't want you for med school, but we are still interested in taking your money so come to our school for your masters. What a slap in the face. And are we suppossed to believe they are really caring about you and what you are going to do now. Grrrrrr!! <img src="graemlins/pissy.gif" border="0" alt="[Pissy]" />

    i *really* don't think that tulane meant anything malicious by sending out that brochure. as someone else mentioned, i think they were just trying to spread the word about their new program, and it seems that they sent it to everyone on their initial applicant list (like what they got from AMCAS). i was offered an interview at tulane a while back but i declined it and withdrew my app...and i got the letter too. so i don't even have an active application at tulane--i rejected them--and they sent me the brochure anyway. i really think it was just a mass mailing and that some of you are probably reading too much into it. tulane seems like one of the more student-friendly schools out there and i doubt that anything was meant by it.

    Hey jbfuq-
    I am in the same boat as you. I was complete in early September and heard nothing, so I called last week to find out what the hell is going on and my app is on "Hold". I got that damn Master's letter and thought it was an interview invite. I was pretty displeased to say the least.

    I've had good experiences with Tulane so far. They interviewed me a couple months ago and let me in two days after the interview. I just got that Master's Program letter today, they probably should have used different envelopes from the Med School just not to get a lot of people's hopes up. The Master's Program people though are probably just trying to reach a large audience, it's not the Medical School Admissions people that are sending this out. I loved Tulane and will probably attend there next year, hopefully this one bad experience will not influence people too much. :)
