Somewhat ironically, the oil spill has actually helped protect the reputation of Tulane.cp19 wrote:Are any incoming 1L's at Tulane worried how the oil spill will effect that quality of life or reputation of the school?

well, for one, you're looking at a glut of legal work for the next umpteen years in Tulane's home city. Of course, Tulane places a great many graduates in firms in the city, so I'd expect it to have a positive effect on Tulane's placement numbers.

You all have good points. I was worried that it wouldn't be as attractive to students (for next year's cycle) because of concern over how the spill would effect the quality of life in New Orleans. However, maybe the city isn't being effected.

if President Obama keeps this drilling moratorium in effect I think I would me more worried about the economic impact of drilling companies canceling their contracts and moving else where. A lot of money from oil flows through the state, especially in terms of tax dollars; however, since Tulane is private it should be insulated against budget cuts. The problem is if he keeps the drilling moratorium in place, who knows how far the economic effects will trickle.
