Where should I go next fall? / Re: SEO Corporate Law Program
« on: April 02, 2006, 11:59:28 PM »
I'm going to school up at NYU next year, so I'm staying in one of the law school's apartment buildings up there...I saw them when I came for my visit they are very nice...not cheap though, as if anything is in New York..

Right now I don't even know I just got accepted into the program this past week. They say you learn about your firm placement in a couple weeks.

Black Americans are welcomed in Japan as something like "b-list celebrities" as was said before. I'm not exactly sure why, my best guess would be that they see us on TV rapping and playing sports, and through that exposure have developed some sort of superficial admiration. However, Blacks from Africa who immigrated to Japan are looked upon negatively, and given the same racist treatment that our people are sure to find almost anywhere we go.

Also The environment there is much more laid back/comfortable than at any other t14 schools I have visited. The facilities are great, although they do not have a traditional "campus." And the faculty were great. They all seemed very approachable, and I would have no problems going to them with questions or concerns at any time. Basically, the NYU visit basically sold me on the school. Oh yeah, and the women are definetely better looking than at Columbia. Now just waiting on this financial aid decision....

Yea I got my letter in late December with $$$$. But I took my LSAT before December so that may be why..

I got the full ride to Howard as well, and financially it seems like a no-brainer, but I can't help but noticing the difference in the tone in my advisors and my peers voices when I tell them about Howard, and then I tell them about getting accepted at NYU, for example. At this point I don't know what I am going to do.

"You don't get to "express" yourself in corporate america, and as I understand it, the schools already have dress codes and nobody is boo hooing over that. Would you be opposed if they banned visible tattoos and facial piercings?"


You are right, you don't get to express yourself in corporate America...so for that reason, if you attend Howard University, which is at least to me the most well-known/prestigious of all HBCU's...which are Universities...centers for cultural and academic learning and expression....you don't get to express yourself either? That does not make sense to me. As far as the dress codes, they are a private school and are entitled to do what they want, but the fact is I am graduating with brothers and sisters who wear sweats to class almost everyday and since Fall semester they have had their corporate jobs already secured, whereas I have people at Howard who graduated last year and were forced to settle after grueling job searches, dress code and all. As a Black man, and a business major, I don't know how to feel about the fact that I'm glad I don't go to HU. As far as the facial piercings and visible tattoo's comment...those are extreme and I personally would not recommend them to anyone, regardless of their career aspirations, but I was referring to hair. And I do know professional men and women with these hairstyles that are being banned.


Haha and that comment about the weaves was hilarious...and so true
