P.S. When did this thread get so hostile? I liked coming here because it was Tulane folks giving other (sometimes potential) Tulane folks advice and venting about how much law school sucks. I'd really like all the unpleasantness to stop. This was a happy place not too long ago. I'm not criticizing anyone for voicing their opinion, but can we please just keep this thread positive? 

Sorry.  I am at least partially responsible.  I'll try to compensate by saying something positive.

That puppy in LawDog's avatar is really, really cute.  :)

Thanks for the compliment, but you're completely responsible...I did not start the fight, YOU DID. I came here to be a positive part of a community, and I have as much to offer here as anyone else (and more than many), but I am not treated like it. Much of what I say is dismissed out-of-hand, by folks who clearly have NOT done their research...I mean true, in-depth research. I feel some of it racial prejudice. But what kills me is that I say things that many experts have backed up, and people still fight with me.

I'll let that be the end of it...for now. Congrats and good luck to you all!  :)

LOL.  Sure, I'm completely responsible.

Cute puppy!  :)

Hey guys, I have a question about Tulane. How accessible are the professors? Are they typically open to providing extra help for students that show initiative? Interacting with professors during office hours was an integral part of my academic success in undergrad, and I would like to continue this during law school.

Yes, but this isn't unique to Tulane really.

From what I hear, they love it when students come talk to them.

Do many students at Tulane seek help from professors outside of class? Also, what is your favorite and least favorite thing about Tulane?

In this thread, at least.  I'm trying to be courteous to the actual Tulane folks.  ;)

I've talked to profs on a few occasions and found them glad to talk to me. Some are not ok with emailing them questions but they're all fine with stopping by the office.


Least favorite thing about Tulane is probably some aspects of New Orleans. I live in a nice neighborhood, as does my girlfriend. Both of us had had attempted break ins, my car broken into once, and generally some creepy vibes.  We're also cat people, so the large dog recommendation does not really hold for us :) The key is, buy into a safe area though. Nothing bad has happened because we're vigilent, have alarm systems and neighborhoods have private patrol.

I love private patrol, their response time has been approx 90 secs every time I've needed them vs. NOPD may/may not decide to show up.
