Black Law Students / Cornrows at Howard - Banned!
« on: February 26, 2006, 08:44:32 PM »
I saw an article on CNN tonight about how Howard University, or maybe just the Business School, has banned cornrows and long braids.  I didn't catch the exact language.  I was curious about the reaction of folks here.  Good idea, bad idea?  Would it make you more or less likely to go there?

P.S. I know not only black folks go to Howard and I know not only black folks wear cornrows but I am guessing that the only people at Howard who wear cornrows are black so I put it here instead of news discussion.

Last year I read Horton Hears a Who to a kindergarten class.  It was a blast.  They are always looking for people to get involved.

"... make decisions about where to go to law school."

Anyone else been called by these folks from 2191 Defense Highway in Crofton MD???  I got a long call with about 200 responses on rating a bunch of real and made-up schools, then a packet today with $25 and a bunch of pink, blue, white and yellow pages to fill out and supposedly they will call and then send another $25.  Any other experiences?  Their methodology didn't seem real good to me, but I never expected to actually see their cash either ....

On the off chance anyone is interested, these are the gross numbers of lawyers from each listed school on martindale w/in 100 miles of SEA and PDX respectively.  Total PDX - 6564 lawyers, SEA - 12568.

Choosing the Right Law School / NYU vs. Univ. of Washington
« on: January 01, 2006, 08:04:18 PM »
I am older, not necessarily wiser, changing careers and going to law school.  3.86 UGPA, 171 LSAT, two Masters degrees and 10 year successful career.  I will not live / practice anywhere more than 25 miles east of I5 or south of Salinas.  I was 50/50 shot at HLS and Columbia, but due to epic six week struggle trying to get a Dean's certification from London School of Economics (any alumni who did this successfully please tell me how!) app's are still not complete and chances are dropping daily as British bureaucrats struggle to summon the energy to complete a one page form they have had for six weeks (yes, I am bitter).  Anyway, it is looking like my choice will probably be NYU or Univ. of WA.  NYU higher ranked, UW much cheaper.  For practicing in the Northwest, who recommends which and why?  Good luck to all!
