So I want to purchase a macbook pro, but I am concerned because Tulane "strongly" advises selecting a PC. Is this really an issue? Much more comfortable with macs.
There are no problems using Macs at Tulane. The wireless printing software works with Macs as does the ExamSoft testing software. The only thing that sucks about Mac test taking is that the software for Mac is really ghetto and the printing turns out super small and is a bit hard to read when frantically exam writing, but its really not that big a deal if you take a couple practice tests so you know what to expect.
I am not sure where Tulane highly suggests using a PC, because both are totally operable here. I will say; however, that if you have a PC the IT guys in the Library are more likely to be able to fix any software problems, etc. you might have. But other than that, they're totally equal. There are a large # of students who use Macs.
