There were a few very high profile cases of racists activity in Idaho years ago and unfortunately it has forever branded the state as racist. In fact, you will find that Idaho is now very much non-racist, but the perception lives on. Boise is a large metro area now with a growing Hispanic population and many California transplants, and even areas like Coer d' Elane (sp?) are no longer Aryan Nation training grounds, but rather second home communities for rich Californians. Of course, I see that you are actually Hispanic and live there, so I will defer to you to tell us how it really is, at least in Pocatello! As far as where to go to school, I have to think that you would find cultural connections in the Houston area, even at the law school. And if you are in fact the only one, then perhaps you will get more money thrown your way, and have more opportunities from companies looking for diverse candidates.
