I hope so. We did not have a hard look at Tulane, because it is a private school (expensive), and none of our teens or students we've mentored have expressed an interest or asked for our recommendation on it. Our A list schools in the SE US are: Rice, Texas A&M, UGA, GA Tech, Clemson, and U Florida. We have not had a hard look at Vandy, Tulane, or a few other schools that would probably make the A list if we did. But we have also noted a tremendous range of quality in the B list schools. A 3.9 GPA from the best B list schools might be preferred to a 2.5 GPA from some of the A list schools.
