I chose Tulane because...

I chose Tulane because it has one of the top Public Health programs in the country, which is something that really appealed to me. Additionally, being in a city and state with an immense French history excited me due to my desire to continue studying the language. Finally, the other part of Tulane that really led me to pick it was its strong commitment to public service and giving back to the community. Finally, I'm a huge Saints fan so there really wasn't any other place I wanted to go! :)
