Yep, my LSAT is sad sauce, but the rest of my app was solid (tons of public interest WE/internships/second language/other neat stuff). A lot of love for Tulane right now for looking beyond the numbers (though I'm sure my G.P.A. helps :wink: )

Good luck to those still waiting!


You're giving me so much hope ! I'm a non-URM (sadly Cuban isn't considered a minority -_-) at a 158 with a 3.4ish GPA, I have a ton of other softs and Tulane is amongst my top schools if not the top. I visited back in March of 2011 and fell in love with the campus and faculty...crossing my fingers still :?


I hope you hear some good news soon! From what I've seen on lawschoolnumbers.com Cubans seem to not be entirely out of the URM bump at times, but maybe it's a "soft URM" bump. Did you get the Why Tulane in as well?

Congrats! I'll probably be withdrawing my application. I applied on 10/25, had a date change 11/08. The hardest part is that they've waitlisted and rejected people already. I honestly don't care at this point what their decision is I'm over it. I just want one already and I've been patient.....

Thank you! In all honesty, a "soft URM" bump is better than the nothing at all I get in Florida schools. And yes I did! It was the one I was the most passionate about in my opinion.

Just sent the email to be withdrawn. Seriously unprofessional of them to not give me a response when I applied in October. Should have asked them for a refund of my lsac report fee. Anyways to all those still waiting best of luck and to those attending best of luck.

I applied in mid Feb to Tulane. Kind of an afterthought for me... but I'm in and received a $25,000 a year scholarship in the mail today. So excited and glad I decided to apply!! That bumps it right to the top of my list!

I'll be at the ASW on the 23 and 24 :)

Thanks! Sorry to hear about the withdraw, but I might well end up doing that from some of the schools I don't hear back from. It definitely can make things difficult when you start having to pay seat deposits. Best of luck in getting the school you want!

Thanks for the kind words. I shot off an email letting them know that I was patient but given the deadlines from schools I have been accepted to I couldn't wait any longer. Oddly enough I never got confirmation about them getting my withdrawal request. That being said its kind of shady to keep people waiting at this point given they could have other options if they have decent numbers. Oh well such is life!

Just went complete for the first time on 3/8 since my file initially went complete on 1/18. How many completes are most getting before receiving a decision?

I've heard mixed answers for this question -- where did you hear this from? How do we go about getting the voucher?

I heard it from the Dean herself.. I went to the ASW last weekend... They will give out the voucher during the last session of the first day.

A quick summation: great, but I do have a few concerns. Later today, I will write up/post everything that happened during Tulane ASW and give me opinion about the school.

I'll be waiting for this :) I'm interested to hear what you think since we've applied to several of the same schools.
