NOLA would be tolerable for 3 years (I've lived in the South my whole life), but I would eventually want to be in DC, NY, Boston, or LA. From what I understand, Tulane places around 25% in the NE, and another 5% out west. Visiting BC this weekend, pondering a visit to NO.
I'm pretty much in the same situation as you; Tulane is offering 20k a year and my other top choice, George Mason, is offering nothing, but I could get instate after a year. From everything I've seen, Tulane offers a good path to working in the NE after graduation, at least compared to other southern schools, which is important to me as I would like to work in either DC or NY. My only concerns with Tulane are how the school will be affected in the long run by Katrina and if there will be any drop in prestige or job prospects as a result.
