I feel what you're saying.  Even though its not a direct criteria (how much CPT a school has in returning apps) it can indirectly taint other criteria that will effectively lower their overall stats.  Such as returning the US News survey back to US News 4 months late...

Question about Merit Scholarships at Howard
« Reply #664 on: November 27, 2005, 12:09:21 AM »
Hi all,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Question: What do you think my chances of receiving merit scholarship at Howard are and would you have any idea how much?  Background: Black Female, 3.15 GPA from an ivy, 157 LSAT, father went to HUSL, in college campus leader, 3 years in the workforce with pretty impressive job history. 

I'm trying to get a handle on what to expect from Howard money-wise since it seems from most of these posts that I may not hear from them for a while.

Thanks so much,

Howard is a good school if you believe in legal change in the black community and you want to be a litigator.  I got into HUSL and was faced with the very difficult choice of paying 90k for a decent legacy fulfilled education or do I attend a T1 very good public university.  Suffice it to say, I chose the latter.  You have to go to HUSL before you accept or think that its the place for you.  Before I visited I was gunho about HUSL but when I got there I was very displeased.  I am extremely happy to be where I am today and I feel that I still have all the same opportunities as what I would have had at HUSL.  The only things that I think I missed out on are the different experiences that I would have had being in D.C. and being an HUSL student.  It is very true about HUSL being in a serious need for black male students.  But what law school isn't?  If you are a black male, apply to a bunch of schools.  Write a hell of a personal statement speaking about how your experiences as a black man have shaped your view.  Focus on the highlights of your educational experience.  If you haven't heard back from HUSL, wait!  I applied in like October 2004 and didn't get my acceptance letter until February 2005.  And yes, there are some beautiful ladies at HUSL.  If you get in stay focused!!!!

P.S.  Don't worry about the stats.  Trust me!!!

I think that some people have already received theirs.. they probably know that you aren't planning on attending so they've put your letter on the backburner :D
We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...

LOL. Good Point. But I'm seeing how long I can go with no rejections.
