Tulane's campus is just about the most beautiful campus I've ever seen. Following my tour, I went to talk to an admissions counselor and he was incredibly helpful with my questions about being deferred from early action, merit based aid I could receive, and any additional information I could provide to the university that might make me a better candidate. I ended up being put on the waitlist in early marsh, and I once again reached out to the admissions faculty. They were helpful and understanding. I ended up not only being accepted off the waitlist, but I also received a VERY generous merit scholarship and will be attending in the fall! Roll Wave!

I am beyond grateful that I chose this school. I can't imagine going anywhere else! In the college search process, I knew I wanted to live in a city but still have a campus to walk around. Tulane provides the perfect balance between the classic college campus vibe and the amazing city of New Orleans right outside the campus fence. Tulane in a word is: balanced. Everyone studies hard and cares a lot about their grades, but at the end of a long day of studying everyone loves to go out, whether at the fun frat parties or plethora of college bars. You'll never run out of things to do, on or off campus. The weather is great, the students are all happy and kind, and the place is always just full of good vibes. I have not met a single person who wishes they went somewhere else. If Tulane is right for you, you'll know because when you visit you'll feel the same passion for the school as every student. And if you don't feel passionate about Tulane, it's just not for you.
Tulane was and is my dream school. The education that I have begun to receive at Tulane is second to none. I love Tulane for so many reasons. I have amazing friends, committed teachers, and an environment that helps me thrive. Tulane is dedicated to helping its students achieve all that they can, and I have definitely experienced that just in this first year!
