happy cinco de mayo everyone! woohoo! another excuse to go out and drink our adult beverages in the sun shiney weather. . .
monet-- i agree w/ halfie that the ranking difference is not significant. on your other thread discussion, several people commented on tulane's excellent national rep.
i had a great undergrad experience there, with extremely attentive faculty and no silly university bureaucracy standing in the way of doing whatever i wanted. if you're at all interested in hurricane katrina work, i've been talking and corresponding w/ some current law students, and they are doing AMAZING work, and they have been able to donate a significant amount of time, energy and attention to it.
anyhow, one of the main reasons I chose tulane was because i thought it would be the place where i was the happiest.
it was not the highest ranked school i got into, but i truly think that i am going to pursue an equally prestigious career path as i would going to any of the other schools i considered becomes i'm motivated to do so, i'll be involved in great work at tulane, and i'm coming from a nationally recognized school. plus
I AM GOING TO HAVE FUN DOING IT!!!!!!
in conclusion, come to tulane
