From a Forbes article titled “College Financial Grades 2021: Will Your Alma Mater Survive Covid?
https://www.forbes.com/sites/schifrin/2 ... covid/amp/
Among top-tier colleges, few have improved in financial strength as much as New Orleans’ Tulane University. The 186-year-old school, which is home to 8,600 undergraduates, saw a 46% increase in applicants from 2014 to 2019, and more applicants are making it their first choice—its admissions yield rose 14 percentage points to 33.5% in 2020. Tulane is ranked by The Princeton Review as third among colleges with the happiest students, and today its acceptance rate is approaching Ivy League territory at less than 13%. In the last five years, its financial grade rose from a B to an A-minus.

Excellent news. Always good to be trending up in academic viability and vitality.
After you've been on fire under Arctic pack ice everything else is a walk in the park.

I like to see these articles about Tulane being highly rated about as much as having an undefeated season and being in NY's Day bowl. We all know how great a school Tulane is, looks like the rest of academia is starting to figure it out. Not all college educations are in the classroom only.
Plan your work, work your plan.

retention rate was always a problem. alumni giving also needs to improve. i feel like that is easier now that we are on tv.
