Black Law Student Discussion Board / My dilemma
« on: April 23, 2007, 05:00:53 PM »
God is Good! I got an acceptance letter from NCCU School of law today!(which surprised me, considering they rejected me last year) So my dream of being a lawyer will come true! But here is my dilemma. I am getting married and my fiance lives in Orlando. (I have applied to FAMU, but haven't heard back from them yet, but I would rather go to NCCU anyway) He is starting his own business down there and really can't move right now.  We would probably get married b/f I started law school, but I know the distance, even though its only about an 8-9 hr drive from Orlando will be hard. Has anyone here ever been away from a husband/wife while going to law school?

Black Law Student Discussion Board / LSAT and GPA reporting
« on: March 21, 2007, 06:37:22 PM »
I have heard that schools are only required to report the LSAT and the GPA for the incoming fall classes.(this would only apply to schools with fall AND spring enrollments) Thus, being more open to allowing a class with lower numbers to enter in the Spring. Is this true?

I have a friend who did the program last summer and said it was very helpful. She is at Howard right now and was accepted to Howard before she knew she was accepted to CLEO and just did the cleo prep program to prepare for law school. She said the networking opportunities were great and was exposed to alot of important people that could help her get a job after graduation.(top firms, law school and CLEO alumns, etc) And I believe if you keep your grades up, you get scholarships in your 2L and 3L years. (which I think you only get if you do the 6 week program, not the AIE)

I personally attended ASAP last summer in ATL and loved it. CLEO is a great program. I applied for the 6 week institute, but haven't heard back yet, but would probably do it if I get accepted.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / FAMU-UPDATE TO ORIGINAL MESSAGE
« on: January 14, 2007, 11:01:57 PM »
Does anyone know anything about FAMU? According to their website they are provisionally accredited by the ABA, But I really haven't found any other information about the school, its LSAT/GPA medians or anything. I may be relocating to the Orlando area and wanted as much information as possible. ALSO, I WAS WONDERING WHY THEY DON'T HAVE A PROFILE ON LSAC.ORG, usually from what i can remember, even provisional schools have a profile on there.


UPDATE TO ORIGINAL MESSAGE!!!
I was really seriously thinking about applying to FAMU, but check this blog out from law students and faculty at the school. THIS IS NOT GOOD!!

I agree with most people on here. Today's R & B is Horrible! Very overproduced, throw-away type music only good for dancing at the club. We need to get back to the real music, when men expressed their love for their women and not just wanted to get them in the bed. Let's get back to Luther circa 1988, Marvin Gaye, artists like that. I am really feeling anything by Anthony Hamilton right now though.  :)

Does anyone here know about John Marshall Law School in Atlanta? They are provisionally accredited right now, but I have heard that being provisionally accredited is basically the same as being fully accredited. I just dont know if it would be a good idea to apply there. Any thoughts?
