I'm curious about this too, so I pulled some numbers from LSN:

168/3.84 - 90k
166/3.05 - 60k
169/3.56 - 75k
165/3.67 - 75k
170/3.9 - 105k
167/3.7 - 105k
163/3.73 - 75k
173/3.8 - 105k
166/3.42 - 75k

There are more on there, but that should give you the gist of it.
I love Tulane but it would take a lot of scholly to get me to go there.

Just found the acceptance packet that our mailperson "hid."

In with 20K a year. Was hoping for a little more. Not sure if that would be enough for me to attend.

Anyone know how Tulane is with scholarship negotiating?

I just re-looked over the fitness questions and sent them an email telling them I've gotten 2 moving violations. Hope it doesn't kill my chances.

Not a fan of Bourbon St. Uptown seems to be where it's at.

I'm not so sure about going to Tulane, but I'm also definitely going to ASW. April 1 for sure!

It seems like everyone accepted so far has gotten scholarships - is this how it generally works with 1st/2nd wave of acceptances? Has everyone accepted 1/18 got their packages yet?

I can't remember if I read this in last year's thread or the year before, but Tulane has offered a $300 stipend to reimburse travel expenses (airfare, gas - not hotels) in the past. I have not heard anything about this being offered this year, though..

Read the thread from last year, and they said the 300$ was mentioned in the accepted student package and website. Nowhere to be found this year...

Tulane's definitely in my top 4.

I'd really like them to go ahead and accept me so I can make plans to visit the campus. I've visited before but never the law buildings.

Longhorn - the law building is so nice! Granted, I have only toured Tulane, Texas and U of H, but it blew the others out of the water. The facilities were a huge selling point for me, hopefully I will see you there next year since that is where I am headed. Good luck!

Anyone could blow UH's law building out of the water. :)

I've been to Tulane's campus a bunch over the years, and I love the older buildings. I've never been to the law building in person, but it seemed to me from looking online that the law building is new with a contemporary design. Is that so? I wish they'd just keep it all classic.

Right now it looks like UT, SMU, Tulane and WUSTL. I love Tulane's location and that they're fairly generous with financial aid. My only drawback is that I think I want to work in Dallas and I don't think they compare favorably in that department to the other schools I'm applying to.

Number 1 criteria is location, number 2 is price, so hopefully Tulane admissions can come through for me.
