Thanks! I'm 26/f/740/3.7 from a tiny liberal arts school. 4 years of small business management, ECs with fair trade groups & community gardens. Also hoping to study entrepreneurship and relate it to the food industry.
I had some great advice from a friend who works closely with the Levy-Rosenblum Institute. She helped me to really define my goals in my essays, and to pick an "aha!" moment to focus on in order to introduce them - what was I doing that made me realize what I wanted to do in the future? She also helped me take out sentences that were underwhelming. I was reluctant to sound like I was bragging and was being overly humble rather than confident and enthusiastic. So those are some bits of advice that no one else in the books had really given me.
The admissions committee at Tulane is very helpful and receptive. They're definitely the most open and least pretentious group I've dealt with in this process, and they seem genuinely excited about the school and the opportunities that it offers, rather than just proud of the brand they carry like some of the others. I recommend reaching out to them if you haven't already.
I agree with you about their entrepreneurship program - it seems incredibly strong. It was also ranked pretty high on a list of global mbas that some of the other forum users were mocking recently. I thought it was an interesting take on the system. I love that you're required to travel at Freeman. Are you going for the fulltime program?
Good luck!! Let me know if I can help with anything!
Congrats on entry and scholarship. What's your profile?
I'm planning to submit my app before the round 2 deadline on 1/4.
Any advice as I wrap up?
Others on here may have an opinion, but I think Tulane is probably ranked a little lower because the degree is not as universally strong. Regionally, I think having a Tulane MBA is as good as any other. But west coast, midwest, northeast (to a lesser extent) - not so sure. I also think their rankings probably suffer from the aftermath of Katrina. It may be difficult for them to draw top faculty to NOLA. The school certainly does have its own strengths and N.O. is a great place for entrepreneurs right now.
