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.

Good choice, you'll love it.  Now that there is an apple store out in Metairie too, repairs are much easier to handle. They're very friendly.

Yes. 4 credit hour courses have class on Friday - I believe what that means is you will have Torts & Civ Pro on Fridays first semester, and Property + Con law on Fridays in spring.

Been here a week, already love this place. I suppose classes starting will change things, but pretty certain that this thread is aptly titled, Tulane and New Orleans are truly great.

Welcome, all you 1L's.  We're glad you chose Tulane.

Take some time to get to know us 2L's when you're not fretting over silly school matters.

I've seen what appears to be a good number of 1Ls in and around TLS.  Good luck to you.  Remember, work VERY hard this year. Have fun and go out, but do this at appropriate times (i.e. the weekend).  1L year for me was one of the best and worst years of my life, but I never regret it.  Just do your best, enjoy New Orleans and life a bit.  Thats about all I have for a pep talk.
