Black men are horribly underrepresented in law school compared to black females.  Do you feel this is due to...

Schools trying to simultaneously fill AA spots and also add to their percentage of women?

Just not enough black men qualified, intelligent enough to qualify because of the educational system, culture, etc?

Other reasons?

Data from Official Guide 2004

Harvard, Black males = 47, Black females = 93
GW, BM 55, BF 124
G'town, BM 63, BF 139
Berkeley, BM 11, BF 26
Penn, BM 22, BF 48
Duke, BM 20, BF 38
Columbia, BM 48, BF 60
Cornell, BM 11, BF 21
Emory, BM 15, BF 35
NYU, BM 37, BF 63
UNC, BM 21, BF 57
Mich, BM 28, BF 46

It is almost two to one (closer to 2.5 to 1 at UPenn, GW, and G'town) and I did not cherry pick these numbers but selected them randomly.  Has anyone heard of any studies done on this topic?

Mexican Americans and Hispanics are almost equal between genders if anyone was wondering.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Michigan Visit
« on: January 16, 2005, 10:38:33 AM »
I visited Michigan this week.

The education speaks for itself.
Ann Arbor is the ideal college town.
The law school is the most phsyically attractive bar none.
Michigan's sports are the best in the top 14.
The housing is tremendous, both family and the lawyers club.
The students I spoke with said the environment is relaxed.

I have outstanding apps at the 6 higher ranked schools but I am planning to attend UM.  Admittedly this is my first visit, but the school just felt perfect.

I would like to discuss Boalt's slow decline into obscurity.
