Howard has marginally better employment prospects and about a 20% lower bar passage rate.

I am not disputing the bar passage rate, but to say that the employment prospects are "marginally" better is a fallacy.  Firms that do not interview at American interview at Howard (granted you have to be at the top of your class, but the same can be said for American).  If you are a black male who wants to go to school in DC and you did not get into Gtown or GW then (IMO) you should go to Howard.

I just recently applied to a number of schools.  I'm a African American male with a 2.9 GPA, and a 154 LSAT score.  I also havea master's degree.  How much does applying late affect my chances?  Do I even have a chance at any of these schools?:

New York Law School
CUNY
American
Catholic
Howard
Baltimore
Cleveland State
John Marshall


out of all those schools the only school worth going to (IMO) is Howard.  You have a decent shot there.

Howard over American?

with his scores it definitely make more sense to go to Howard.

Agreed, but the other guy seemed to be saying Howard was a better overall school.

it is better as far as employment prospects go (the OP is a black male)

1L job search / Re: just how bad is the 1L job market?
« on: March 17, 2009, 10:20:14 AM »
bad.

I'm number one in my class after first semester at a top 40 school near a great legal market.

I'm still jobless.

I have my suspicions as to why (nothing to do with my particular idiosyncracies...a broader theory), but flabbergasting nonetheless.

Are you only looking at SA positions?

The best time is never, why would you want the added headache of planning a wedding?  Plus law school is like the ultimate stress test to see if your relationship will work.

I would renege unless A is a judge (either federal or in the state where you want to practice).
