As to questions about job prospects from Tulane, from what I have experienced here things presently are certainly challenging, but Tulane hardly struggles to the extent that lower ranked schools do. Tulane is, to paraphrase, who we thought it was, a T-1 school, strong but not elite, generally pretty well respected, and in some parts of the country has a reputation that belies its rank. If you do well here, you will be fine. If you don't, you will have to hustle. Also, in every other respect, Tulane is simply great. New Orleans is incredible, at least as far as I am concerned, and most people (if not all) end up falling in love with it. If you have the option of attending the elite schools, then it would be foolish to pass them up for Tulane, but beyond those choice schools, it is a pretty great place to end up.
