Could be better

3.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

New Orleans firms recruit from Tulane, certain professors are excellent

Downers

IP program needs new professor, the current one is a train wreck. More law firms should come to OCI. Our ranking keeps slipping, very embarrassing.

Comments

It could be tough to find a job. It may not be worth it to attend here unless you get a large scholarship, given the employment outcomes of most students.

Would You Recommend

No

Great school, not-so-great city

The Socratic method is dead. The professors are great, and have a lot of practical experience. They are also very accessible. The study abroad is amazing. I am studying with a Supreme Court justice in Cambridge this summer.

Quality of Life

The cost of living around campus is manageable. The community is geared towards the students here. New Orleans is a great place to live, and though we have crime in certain areas of the city, uptown is safe.

Admissions

The LSAT was similar to most standardized testing, except with a particular emphasis on logic. Tulane is great with scholarship offers. Most people here receive significant financial aid.

Academics

I've been extremely pleased with the quality of the professors. They are extremely intelligent, well prepared, accessible outside of class, and devoted to their jobs. I have never attended another law school, so it to make comparative assessments. On the other hand, one of Tulane's regular professors died suddenly and was replaced by a visiting professor from a nearby law school. The difference in quality of instruction was STRIKING. It really made me appreciate both how good Tulane Professors are, and what a difference it makes when trying to learn the material. I think the quality of instructors is one of Tulane's central high-points.

Quality of Life

I think Tulane has an exceptional quality of life. Housing is inexpensive in New Orleans. The city is culturally rich and extremely relaxed. You appreciate this in law school where the stress and tension are abundant. Being in a relaxed city helps those who are sensitive to these things keep proper perspective. The law school shares some of the character of the city - it is relaxed and "real" in a sense I can't describe. It is a law school, so it is a rigorous, hyper-organized, and driven environment. At the same time, it seems less dehumanizing than most law schools. Although students work hard, the atmosphere is not toxically competitive. Students will share notes and genuinely wish each other the best. There isn't the sense that one's success will come at the expense of one another. This is priceless.

Admissions

Typical process.

Academics

Can be a hit or miss but once your find the right professors you'll be set. They have professors for just about anybody. The school doesn't have a competitive atmosphere at all, my undergrad years were more competitive. The grading curze can be a disaster at times and many students tend to try to take as many seminar classes as possible.

Quality of Life

Things can be expensive but administration typically makes things easier. Crime isn't as bad as people make it out to be here. The on campus dining is great for a college, there's even a restaurant on campus open until 4 a.m.

Admissions

Unique app questions, pretty thorough essay requirement, process was easy because of help from the admissions office.
