    Keep in mind that with such a low admission rate this year, Tulane is becoming a reach for everyone with no guarantees on admission no matter what your scores are. However your ACT is right in line with what Tulane is looking for so you have as good a shot as anyone else. I would highly recommend a few things:
    -Make sure you have another "dream school" in mind that you will love in case you don't get in.
    -Make sure you run the finances. What if you don't get a $25K+ scholarship? Will you be able to go?
    -Keep reading Jeff's blog and take his advice. He gives many great tips on what they are looking for specifically in a Tulane application. They can tell who is using the Common App to just submit a generic application vs. one that embodies Tulane.
    -Apply for the Dean's Honor and Paul Tulane scholarships, due early December. Yes it's extra work. However it shows demonstrated interest, you might win one, and even if you don't many applicants get an extra one or two thousand in merit for putting in the effort. You have a strong art and English background which will work to your advantage for the scholarships.

    Have you shown demonstrated interest? Tulane defers lots of applicants whom they feel are treating Tulane as a backup.
