Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Northeastern Open House feedback
« on: November 10, 2005, 07:51:55 PM »
i attended the northeastern open house too - drove out from western mass. i didn't learn much about the program that i didn't already know from reading up on the school, but i am very glad i got a chance to talk to some people. the faculty seemed like a really cool, genuine group of people.

what i didn't get to check out is what i've been told is northeastern's weakness - a bad library.
 
i didn't get the impression that the women and minority numbers were quotas. bragging about high diversity percentages is just something that schools do. i suspect northeastern was bragging about its success at attracting minorities, rather than informing us that it plays heavy favorites in admissions. that being said, most law schools consider diversity a desideratum and will favor racial minorities (along with mature students, students from low-income backgrounds, students who have overcome hardships, etc.). i don't see this as particularly unfair, since white nonpoor males have an easier ride in life than students who are given special consideration in admissions.

which law schools are the most generous with scholarships? i really want to go to northeastern, but graduating with minimum debt is important to me.
