Thank you for your response. I thought I had used invisible font or something.  ;)

Howard does not place well all over the country.  It is unfair to egregiously mislead this person because you are trying to hype up your school.  If one does very well at Howard, there will be options, but American is the way to go money or not.

Well dayum :P

Black Law Students / Most Generous REPUTABLE Law Schools

Hello Gang,

What are the most generous LS in terms of grants and scholarships for URM's. By reputable, I mean low T2 to high T3. Someone told me that Ole Miss practically pays URM's to attend. Any truth to this?

..I did a search and was not successful, sorry if this is a re-post.


Ha! This thread is so flimsy and transparent. I sure hope you guys are better lawyers than you are posters.  ;D

I am looking elsewhere, including UNC (where I did my undergrad.)

I don't have the option of moving at this time, so I feel I'm tied to either Central, UNC or Campbell (which will be in downtown Raleigh starting next fall.)

Why don't you have the option to move?  Are you black? 

Yes, Contract 2008 is black, don't you know black people can only move once a decade? ::)

How did other Presidents deal with it? And let's not forget that the man is not even President yet. So typical to turn and look the other way at the FAILURES of the current administration and start blaming folks who haven't even been sworn in yet. HA!!!  ::)

You scored a 176 on the LSAT??!! Let that marinate for the class. SPECTACULAR! ;D

$3100 if you go to a good school.

$500-$750/wk for the less exalted.

Um, no....unless it was only a few hours a day. :P

We're talking about summer between 2L & 3L, right?  If we are, the high numbers are realistic for only the upper echelon, the well-connected, and maybe a few people who are very highly motivated despite their average grades/school. Run-of-the-mill 2L summer positions - the ones most law students have and don't talk much about - pay $15-20/hr maybe with some regional variance.  After taxes/ss, they clear $500-$750/wk or so for fulltime work.   Students outside of the very best schools and without excellent connections should not count on making much more; very few of them will.  Of course, that doesn't mean that it's impossible and that you shouldn't try.

Wow at the disparity, but ok, thanks for the info. ;)

Even though this is after the fact, McKinney is a loon boon  ;D
