Oh, Boston College and Suffolk University also have similar programs. So does Indiana (Indiana Cleo) and so does Colorado. I'm sure many schools/states have similar programs!

I'm not sure when the original post was written, but law schools do take into consideration a person's ethnicity. However, that is not the only or most important factor. If your LSAT score was low, I would suggest going to www.cleoscholars.com. It's called the Cleo Program, and if accepted, you will have the opportunity to take simulated law school classes at a real US law school for about 6 weeks in the summer prior to what would be your first year of law school. This program is great because it also gives you an opportunity to meet with deans/professors from various law schools that come and visit during that time. Some people in my Cleo class had the opportunity to go to better law schools than the ones they were originally accepted at (i.e. one girl got into UC Davis' law school by doing CLEO). Also, it's a great way to meet future lawyers and they will take you to some fabulous events where you can network with and meet other lawyers. Good luck!
