An over-rated, over-priced, and mainly Jewish-influenced university. At this campus you'll see many a JAP, spoiled New England kids, prep, and party-seeking kids. Honestly, Tulane is very good only in a few areas, probably such as Medicine and Law, and the rest are mainly mediocre. Lots of party-goers though. Some of their frat parties are totally nuts, with a huge number of people overflowing out of a frat house, and it makes you wonder if some of these people ever crack a book.
After Katrina, Tulane decided to phase out their whole engineering department except for the degrees of: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering(Undecided), and Engineering Physics. This isn't too surprising considering that these departments were not Tulane's strong suits anyway. But the reasoning for ditching those departments: financial reasons. Yeah, right, after you take at least 30K from each person you don't have enough to keep the Engineering school going. Gimme a break.
Dude 1: "Man, I'm undecided about which school I should go to. I was accepted to Rice, UCLA, and Tulane. I'm leaning towards Tulane right now because I'm thinking it's a fun place."
Dude 2: "Dude, you want to spend that much money for an overrated school when you got accepted to Rice and UCLA? College isn't mainly about partying anyway, is it? And what's your major going to be anyway?"
Dude 1: "Mechanical Engineering."
Dude 2: "Well, in that case, you should know that Tulane cancelled that whole department after Katrina."
Dude 1: " Dang, OK, I'm thinking SoCal sounds better."
