While I know that Tulane is supposed to be a good school and all, I find it impossible to take them seriously.
The reason: an episode of Mission Hill (am I the only person that loved that show to death?) where Kevin, spazzing out about the idea of not completely nailing the SAT, points at his Yale T-shirt and screams "This Y might as well be a T...for Tulane! Tulannnnne!!!!"
That show has completely colored my thoughts on this school forevermore, and no amount of reasonable argument will ever sway me.
