Thanks Botbot. I'm more interested in Houston than Dallas anyway. (BTW, I hope people realize you can buy a sweet condo there for about $150,000.)
I would guess that Texas firms will see Tulane kind of like how they see Emory, W&L, Carolina, and other mid-ranked southern schools. Like, they will have heard of these schools and recognize them as good, but they don't really go interview there. Does Tulane stand out because it's close to TX, and do a lot of the BigTex firms come to Tulane, or does Texas really require your own legwork? I suppose I could just go look at the NALP form but I'm too lazy.
