But all of that would turn legal education upside down.
Not a problem as far as I'm concerned.
So you're down with the cause...lol. Ride or die, huh? I love it.
I'm really unclear as to what this means, but sure.
Wow...first off I never mentioned anything about AA. I merely stated that you seem to have an attachment to one of the schools listed. It seems odd to be so zealous when you don't have a dog in this fight nor care about $$. And I don't know what you look like and, trust me, I couldnt care less. The fact that your "looks" is your first line of defense only points to another insecurity.
Have fun at Tulane. Your logic, however, clearly demonstrates that your LSAT is not strong enough to get into Tulane. Sad for you.
I know that technically schools cannot discriminate based on race, but do any of you Howard students or alumni know what the chances are that a "minority" like me will be given a fair shot at getting in?
This is a dumb question and since you have a 4.0 gpa then you KNOW that this is a dumb question. If you know that Law Schools can't discriminate based on race then why are you asking if Howard would discriminate against you because of your race?
2010 Graduate Poli Sci
URM - mom from sierra leone, west africa/ dad jamaican with portugese descent (never met father)
will be first college grad in family.
3.0-3.1 GPA at graduation if I maintain current pace of straight A's. (Upward Trend-two straight years of all A's. 0.73 GPA after freshman year)
167 LSAT - Shooting for 171-172 on retake
Compelling Personal Statement and LOR's. Former gang member/been stabbed in torsow/ scars to prove it. Not proud of it, just stating the facts. Left gang and decided to attend college at 22 yrs. old after best friend was sentenced to 18 years in prison (fed time-no parole). REALLY turned my life around
Started a youth mentorship program here in Atlanta....My Brother's Keeper which links underprivileged black males with black male college students.
I'm shooting for T-14. HYS and other top of the heap schools etc.
What are my chances?
There's a lot of shooting in this thread.
I'm in a interesting situation here...I didnt think I'd get into any schools much less with scholarship Offers. I'm a West coast guy, Love to stay and work in SF...not sure what Field I'm in but I'd love to be gainfully employed coming out of this
so far I have offers
Howard: 20K (22k Tuition)
USF: 26K (37,230K Tuition)
Santa Clara: 18.5K (38,040 Tuition)
The most significant offer here is Howard but factoring in that I could pretty much live Rent Free at either CA school..Its tough to weight these options here..Anyone got any insight on what to do in this situation
