Are there old exams in the library? Or can you only access them online? Thanks!

Thanks. I can't stand the idea of leaving New Orleans quite yet; seems too much like jumping ship.

I can't seem to read the files for the new rankings. Can anyone tell me what rank Tulane is? Thanks!

Besides the law school itself, how was the immediate area?   Is there stuff to do (open?) around there...i.e. bars, restaurants, etc.

A lot of stuff is open in the area closest to Tulane, and a lot of stuff is open in other cool areas, like Magazine Street. I won't lie--there are some areas that got pretty roughed up, but it seems like those were areas that weren't good or safe areas to be in anyway. By August, I'm sure it will be even better.

Was pretty impressed. Everyone seems pretty happy to be back (at least the students I talked to) despite rumors to the contrary. Liked the school, liked the library, liked the comfortable classrooms. I'm pretty sure this is where I'll end up.

I wonder what factors Tulane takes into account when handing out money. I got the scholarship letter yesterday, and received 25k/yr (I hyperventilated for about two hours).

I have a lower LSAT (in some cases MUCH lower) than other people who have received less money: 161/3.76. Furthermore, one of my friends who applied to Tulane last year had a 160/4.0 (so, same index as me, really) and only got an offer for 6k. I have a lot of really great extra-curriculars but they're not even law related (editor-in-chief of several campus publications, editorial assistant for a national academic journal, the only undergrad at my school to ever be given a job as a student teacher, study abroad in Paris, another one in the Netherlands, etc.). I know my letters of recommendation were really good, so maybe that was it but somehow I doubt it.

Well, whatever the case, I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth; I'm so thrilled! But I am curious how they decide...

Wow, that's awesome! Are you seriously considering going? I know some people are scared of going to New Orleans right now, but I love it here. I just hope Tulane doesn't go downhill.

LegalGal, numbers?

3.4 UGPA, 3.8 graduate (both in English), a lousy 162 LSAT. Good soft factors: editor-in-chief of campus newspaper, editor at book publishing company.

$15,000 per year, as long as I keep a 3.0.

Well, it looks like the email did mean an actual scholarship. I just got their package in the mail. Yippee.

Right now Tulane is my first choice. I was also accepted to American, but I used to live in D.C. and am not sure I want to return to a city where everything is a shade of beige.
