I don't know if I got the out of state tuition waiver or not but the financial aid website lists my cost of attendance as being that of a resident.  I fought hard for a tuition waiver so hopefully it came through.

Just withdrew from a bunch of my schools - tulane included. I feel sad about it because I really genuinely liked all my schools that I was accepted to. I hope releasing my seat helps someone else out.

Good luck.  I'm sure this will not be your case but I've heard that waitlisting is now occuring.

Did you know that you can join the Cornell Club if you went to Tulane?

Thanks for all the info.  SMU says their average starting salary in private is 116K.  Do you folks think that figure is likely?  Also, according to USNWR, SMU has one of the lowest debt per student figures amongst all private schools (Avg. 26 K upon graduation vs. 100 K at Tulane).  I am probably one of the lowest, if not THE lowest applicant accepted this cycle.  I don't anticipate scholarship money but could I anticipate a lot of need based grants? 

SMUs debt figure is messed up - I haven't heard anything about them being generous with need based aid.  They've done some funny scholarship stuff in the past, but I doubt enough to make that debt figure happen.

My SMU sheet has a substantially different salary number, but is possibly a year old.  (I doubt such an increase, but I'll try to obtain the new info.

I think it's been posited before that SMU's low debt figure is in large part a result of the affluence of a lot of the students. It's a guess, but not a bad one considering the SMU undergraduate student body.

Perhaps, although I think its law school has no more affluent kids than might expected at Tulane or another higher ranked school.  SMU does have a rich endowment relative to its size as well.

That information actually came from my acceptance letter.

Choosing the Right Law School / Tulane vs SMU

I'm really caught between these two schools.  I live in Dallas right now so SMU certainly would be my easiest option and would probably give me a leg up  in the Dallas and larger Texas markets.  My interest lies in international law, a field in which both schools seem to be particularly strong.  I wouldn't mind staying in Texas for a few years after law school but I ultimately would like to be more mobile (NY, Chicago).  Would the Tulane degree potentially provide me with a mobility that SMU may not?  Also, while I haven't received a financial aid package from either, I have been hearing that SMU's financial aid is much more generous so my debt would be a lot less (N.O. is also more expensive than Dallas too, I believe).  Could anyone verify this info and/or add their 2 cents?

I got in today :)
