I am curious because I recently spoke with an admissions officer who said that the top 57% figure is not correct. She mentioned that Tulane has instituted a new grading curve which sets the mean GPA for most classes between a 3.2 and a 3.3, thus making a 3.0 fall between the top 75% and top 85% of the class. This makes the GPA requirement seem much more lenient.
Any Tulane students out there who know if this is true?
I have a good friend who is a 2L at Tulane now. She said that the new grading curve makes it a lot easier to make a 3.0 and keep it. I can't speak to the %, but I hope that helps to answer your question.
Thanks. I talked to another Tulane student on these forums who said the same. This makes Tulane a little more enticing.
