Tulane is pretty clear about how to get inMay 25 2014Unknown
Tulane is pretty clear about how to get in through their Micro-Scholarships program. Specifically, they value leadership a ton, along with getting a good SAT score and a healthy number of A's. They actually don't value Honors courses all that much. They give you extra points if you visit the campus, because it shows high interest in Tulane.
Don't waste your moneyJun 05 2013Biology
Don't waste your money. It's highly overrated.

APPLY EARLY! like in septemberDec 22 2011Business - Management and Administration
APPLY EARLY! like in september. if you apply super early they will give you decision in about 2 weeks and its much easier to get in the earlier you apply. Also, you need good SATS and some community service. SHOW INTEREST IN THE SCHOOL. the "optional" essay on why you want to go here might as well be required because it could make or break you.
SAT: 1900 Female
I had a relatively low GPA (3Dec 10 2011Undecided
I had a relatively low GPA (3.45) and a good score of 1940 on my SAT. I think what got me in was a well-written essay and a lot of extra-curriculars. I played multiple sports and was 3 sport captain, newspaper, volunteer, played instrument, all that. I also sent in an art portfolio since I did art, which I think really helped me. Try and show Tulane that you are more than grades; they'll really appreciate that.
SAT: 1940 Male
I was in a lot of activies in high schoolAug 08 2011History/Histories (art history/etc.)
I was in a lot of activies in high school. Good grades and high test scores. Also do volunteer work it look real good on your application.
