Y'all can assume flame all you want. I only mentioned Tulane by name to give perspective to people who are applying to schools ranked lower than Tulane. I would also recommend that people go to schools who want to practice in the same region/city. I'm sure that if I went to a school like SMU or Houston I would be in a better position with someone similarly ranked.
But if Botbot has suggestions, I am all ears. I have even emailed Tulane grads asking for advice (as recommended by OCD) but I haven't received any responses.
