Black Law Students / Re: The Howard Law/HBCU Law Schools Thread
« on: May 15, 2007, 03:15:50 PM »
I am just in awe that I still have not heard from FAMU. It's now three months. I was told by a friend that they mailed their denial letters some time ago. I guess I must be in a holding place. I faxed another letter of interest. The waiting is hard at times.

I think the acceptance letters must still be coming from FAMU. I just got mine in the mail today. Two weeks after I sent my deposit to NCCU. I don't know if that a good thing or a bad thing, cause my fiance lives in Orlando. But what's done is done I guess. :-\

PUSH, I know the comment was directed at Chydiva, but I am also going to NCCU and have visited. The facilities are top notch and the law school was just expanded and remodeled 2 or 3 years ago.

I think I will be staying with my cousin down there. I just wanted a backup plan if I needed one.

Yeah, I have heard the professors and the program is great, but the administration staff is a little questionable. When i went to visit, it was on a Friday (and i guess they don't have classes on Friday because I couldn't sit in on a class) The girl who was the temporary admissions person was very young(this was last year) and I had to wait at least 20 minutes for her to arrive because she was late. :-\ But I have heard that HBCUs are notorious for being a little unprofessional. But I can deal with it.  :)

Yeah! Its great to see someone else attending! Civblu, no they didn't mention any awards. My acceptance letter actually came in a regular sized envelope and you had to fill out some extra paperwork for financial aid(I am assuming that includes scholarships, but I probably won't qualify for any anywayz) I am just happy I got in somewhere! I visited the school, and the facilities are top notch. They just remodeled like 2 or 3 years ago.

Chydiva, do they have grad dorms?If you stay on campus, do you have to have a roommate? Have you seen the dorms?

I applied in Mid January. I got my complete letter 2 or 3 weeks ago and my acceptance letter last week.

Hey everyone, I am sending my seat deposit tomorrow for NCCU and wanted to know if anyone else here is going to attend in the fall. I am so excited! :D

I called the CLEO office today, and they said that the May 1st deadline for the AIE was actually a misprint and the actual deadline isn't until June 1st.

I applied three months ago also. I even went and visited earlier this month and they said my application was complete. Like another poster said, they are going through alot of transisition. No permanent dean, a low bar passage rate and the university as a whole is getting a new president(which is a good thing) But from what I hear, Tallahassee has a tight reign on what goes on in Orlando at the law school. Check out look in the archives. There is alot of info on there about the law school. But I think once they get their stuff together, it will be a good school, but even though i would rather be in Orlando with my fiance, I can't wait for them. Also, when I went and visited, the Admissions rep said that had like 60 percent more apps than they did last year.
I got accepted to NCCU and I think I will end up going there instead.

Black Law Students / NCCU out of state job prospects
« on: April 26, 2007, 04:19:24 PM »
I have been looking at the boards here and this is my situation. I will probably be going to NCCU for law school. But would like to work in Florida(Orlando area) after graduation. Does anyone know what are the job prospects like if you don't want to practice law in NC?
