hi there :
i saw your post about the Paul Tulane Award. i wonder if demographic and family's ability to pay played a role as well . after reading the stats posted by the some of the winners, i just thought that they made a mistake by not selecting my son. i was going to send an email to Tulane and get some clarification but my son asked me not to since he is no longer interested in the school.
i think not showing enough interest in attending Tulane is a strike against him. he applied at the last minute, hasn't visited the school or called, he didn't file for financial aid, our instate tuition is more than the EFC at Tulane after the merit ).
