I first want to note that I visited Tulane many years ago. It was beautiful, and it was full of nice charming people and faculty. My heart goes out to all these fine people. I also visited New Orleans many times. I love that city,with it wonderful warmth, charm, and history. Nothing beat the restaurants and fun times in the French Quarter. New Orleans certainly had a flavor all of its own and different from that of any American city.
However, realism needs to set in. New Orleans and maybe even Tulane won't be back in full operating order, and water free for a long time. What should kids, especially freshmen do? If I were a parent of a freshmen kid, I would advise them to start taking community college courses as to not be too far behind. Moreover, I would start to give serious consideration to applying to other schools for the Winter semester.
Do you think this is being too rash under the circumstances? I am just wondering what you would advise a freshmen child. I want to note that I am only asking about freshmen students. I think that juniors and seniors would have too much to lose at this juncture applying to other schools.
