I'm going to go ahead and step into the fire here...
I think a lot of the ill-feelings towards Tier 4s stem from the idea that there is an over-abundance of lawyers. Many believe law school admissions should be more akin to medical school, whereby only the students with the best numbers get to attend. If you get an average MCAT score, you aren't going to medical school. Many believe the same should be true for law school.
I am still on the list. From what I hear, they plan to take more than last year off the wait list. Im keeping my fingers crossed.
Just FYI, I sent them an e-mail a couple weeks ago. They said they would be pulling people off the waitlist last week and next week. I'm on it too. Good luck.

If you are getting this defensive about the content of an internet discussion board you don't even post on, then you need to get out more.
Notre Dame is a completely superior school in every respect. Top 1/3 at ND will get you a bigger firm job (or at least the ability to compete for one) in most markets. Top 1/3 at Tulane doesn't guarantee you a job....not even remotely comparable schools.
No one is trying to argue against the fact that Notre Dame is a better school. However, Tulane does arguably place better in Texas, which is where the OP wants to practice.
And you statement about the top 1/3 of Tulane not being guaranteed jobs is silly. Is Notre Dame places that much better in BIGLAW, then why does Tulane have a higher average starting salary?
when i say extensive research, i am referring to talking to actual real life lawyers...not sitting on the web all day looking up stats..
If you believe think GMU offers better job opportunities than Vandy and that Richmond is comparable to Tulane, you either have an increadibly strong East-Coast bias or you are talking to incredibly stupid attorneys.
