Current Law Students / Any Tulane law students here?

Hey, I was hoping to talk to some Tulane law students about their experience at Tulane.  Specifically, do you like the school?  Do you have any regrets choosing to go to Tulane/NOLA?  Are you afraid the usnews ranking might drop? 

Thanks a lot to anyone that responds.

Choosing the Right Law School / Fordham and WLRK
« on: March 22, 2007, 09:55:49 AM »
So I spoke with a partner at WLRK (Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz) today who went to my undergrad to ask him what he thought of Fordham.  For those that don't know, WLRK is considered to be the top law firm (only 160 attorneys or so) in the country.  Specifically I asked him whether I should go there or retake the LSAT and apply again.  I explained how I wanted to go into Big Law.  First he explained to me that in his eyes and the eyes of his colleagues Fordham is a tier 2 law school,but that it is near the top of the tier 2.  It sounded like to me that he meant Tier 1 was the T14 schools and then Tier 2 were the next 10 or 15 schools in the rankings with Fordham included.  This was good to know considering the fact that Fordham is ranked 32 yet he considers it toe and toe with schools in the 15-20 range (show's how great Fordham's rep is in NYC). 

Anyways he straight up told me Fordham grad's have absolutely 0% shot at his firm.  He obviously said it in a nicer way and explained how that although it's a great law school, there are obviously better ones out there and he mentioned how they mostly recruit from Harvard, Yale, some COlumbia, NYU, etc.  He said that if I go to Fordham I should be near the top of my class to have a shot at the other top law firms in NYC.  The whole conversation really just drove it home in my mind that I need to work harder than I ever have before.  OBviously I knew that before, but I actually felt the urgency and realized just how important the next year is going to be.

We talked for awhile more but I'm too lazy to type it all out.  Anyone that has questions related to this can ask me and I can probably either answer them or relay them back to him.
