Black Law Students / Re: Does having Dreads or locks matter

Wow these are all big eye openers, but we also need to be realistic. Just because it is against the law to hire based on personal apperance don't mean people will abide by it. I could lose a job due to my locks, however, they are not going to give me this reasoning. I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to cut them off right before entering law school. Once I get established in a firm I will began to grow my hair back. Although going through the "hair growing stage" might be a problem.

Thanx for all the comments lol, however what does my height have to do with anything. Also to the guy that cut his dreads off, do you regret doing it, and if so why or why not.

I have dreads and they are well kept (not the king that has alot of new growth), and I was wondering if law other black male law students have them. I hear alot of people saying they are cutting their dreads off to give off a more professional look. Does this really matter? Should I cut my hair before law school? Also I wanted to know the dress-code for black law students. Is everyone showing up in suits, or does everyone dress comfortable?

Hi readers! I am a 21 year old Black man. I am in my second year of undergrad school. I am the first out of my family to even attemp going to college. My family don't really understand the different majors and fields in college. They think if you go to college and get a degree you're set for life. It took me 2 years to get my mind together and roll up my sleeves and go. I have a 3.0 gpa (as of now) and I'm majoring in International Business. My goal is to go to Law School and become a Lawyer. However, my major has nothing to do with law, so my concern is how will i prepare myself for the LSAT when my major has nothing to do with law. I am not sure as to what part of law i want to practice, however I do know I want to attend a law school in which I can be taught throughly. Like i said earlier in the text my family doesn't have a clear understanding, (and I'm the person the whole family is depending on to make it), so I don't have anyone else to turn to for help. Also I want to know how do i go about studying for the lsat. Are there any websites or specific books etc. Thanks in advance for your help.
