Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: Howard 05-06

It was the most disorganized, worthless experience that I have ever been involved in EVER!!!  I cannot believe that a law school would conduct itself in such a disheveled, unprofessional manner.  I was completely APPALLED at the absurdities of the entire day.  I am NOT wasting my time by going tomorrow.  I am going to the Pinning Ceremony -- that's it.  The rest of my day will be spent in my air-conditioned apartment.

That being said -- I met some very intelligent people in my section and in my orientation group and was VERY impressed with Assistant Dean/Professor Dark and Dean Schmoke.  Those are the only things that got me through the day today.  I am tempted to be on the Orientation Committee just to try to prevent the atrocity that was disguised as an Orientation today. I have never experienced such a debacle in my entire college careeer (and I have 2 degrees from PWI's).**

**I still love Howard though and I am going to look past the disaster that I experienced today.  I just think that it is sad that HBCU's don't come into the 21st century and conduct business effeciently and expeditiously.  It is ridiculous that our HBCUs have a reputation for having an awful administration when modern technology can prevent all of the DRAMA that I went through today!!!!  It is pathetic and inexcusable!!!  I am PISSED!!!!! >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I don't think all of them are.  There is one about parenting as a law student and debt management that I don't plan to go to.  I think I will go to the rest though....it's only an hour.

HUSL offers health insurance.  The info was in the packet of forms to fill out that came from the Dean of Student Affairs.

Intensive Legal Methods is from 10am (thank God) to 1pm.  Then we have workshops every day from 1:30-2:30 every day.  You can print out the full schedule from the website.

Good luck on getting a spot tomorrow Cam.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

oh ok, thanks guys! :)

Well after talking to the Dean of admissions looks like i'll know for sure tomorrow whether or not I get to offically join you guys as 1L's at Howard.
PLEASE LET SOMEONE NOT SHOW UP TO ORIENTATION SO THAT I MAY ATTEND!!!! ;D

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Howard University

This rationale applies to every school then, right.  So basically, everyone at Harvard is more academically accomplished and qualified than anyone at a school outside the T14?




Here's the thing:  Pretty much everyone at Harvard is more academically accomplished and qualified than anyone at Howard.

What about the one drop rule?

So, if everyone with African roots born in America - whether the roots were planted 5 generations or 1 generation ago -- calls themselves African American, does it undermine the culture established by blacks in America?  My cultural identity is completely different than a Nigerian friend of mine whose parents were born in Nigeria, but we both call ourselves African American?

Do my questions make any sense? Probably not (especially now that I am re-reading it) but whatever... :D

Howard.

I should go to the beach -- but I am really not trying to spend any money.

Maybe I'll assemble some sticks and dirt on my balcony with a bucket of water and a beach ball, make a margarita and lay on a beach towel and pretend!!!

So after all of my panicking this morning, I receive a welcome email from my school with a little bit of info about Orientation and an invitation to sign up for the mentoring program.  The last line of the letter was:

"P.S. Don’t worry about next year; we’ll take care of you."

Perfect timing!  I feel better now. ;D

Which law school is this?

Thnx Blq!

I wish I were on a beach somewhere!!!  I am enjoying my last days -- but I know that I shouldn't get used to having this much sleep!
