Affirmative Action / Howard University: lol funny idea
« on: September 08, 2009, 01:12:28 AM »
I'm not here to cause a big fuss, or start a riot. I was reading a post from a while back of a black law student hopeful. The post was about his numbers, and his quest to get into Howard Law. I thought to myself, Howard practically has no AA! Most, if not all of the applications come from minorities. Now, I haven't looked into this, but If a white man were to apply with higher numbers - what would happen? Is it an African-American only school? If so, that's bull (however I don't think that is possible). My main question entertains the idea of a white man using reverse AA to get into the school. Lol. He'd probably be the most hated 1L, if this is even possible? Has it been done?

Where should I go next fall? / 3.67, 175 LSAT

Hi everyone, this is my first post! A few years back, my study habbits were atrocious. I began undergraduate school without a plan; I eventually came to the conclusion I had a passion for law. I brought a 3.0 GPA up to a 3.67 (University of Florida), and recently took the LSAT (175). I decided two years back it was Harvard Law or Bust. I began studying for classes harder, and studying portions of the LSAT. For now I'm hoping my hardwork has paid off; I'm by no means overly intelligent but I tried my hardest.

- What are my chances?

LSAT: 175
Undergrad Major: Health Science
Electives: Heavy Journalism/Writing
UGPA: 3.67
Volunteer: Measly 60 hours of helping disabled children as an OT aide.
Personal Statement: Falls into the 'Decent-Solid' Category
Work History: Part-Time 20 hours weekly throughout college (retail)
