I don't know who on this thread actually goes to Howard Law, but I was wondering what the climate was like from the deans. I ask because yesterday I received a questionable e-mail from the Dean of Admissions. It was his attempt to convince me that Howard Law was where I needed to be this fall. But, he started the e-mail by saying, and I quote, "I want to get straight to the point…Howard University School of Law wants you as a member of the class of 20010." Last time I checked it was 2010. Then further down he writes, "One question…Why pay more for law school for less opportunity or to end up working in the same places making the same salary as the graduates of the school that you currently plan to attend?" Now, maybe I am overreacting, but I felt the tone was a little too strong, and I also felt like he didn't take the time out to hit spell check, which may have caught the run on sentence. The entire e-mail seemed pretty unpolished, and I was wondering if this is common at the law school? I am not hating, but it concerns me, because this is the foremost institution for Black American lawyers, and it does have a reputation to consider.
Yeah I am watching my two year old daughter while typing on here so sometimes I may lose sight of my point. I am orginally from Charlotte,NC. You will love it!!! The Raliegh/Durham/Chapel Hill area is a wonderful academic area. I orginally planned on moving my family after graduation due to the cost of living and ease of the environment. I have my sights set on working in DC, Northern VA, Charlotte, or Atlanta as a securities/ corporate lawyer. Now NC is a litte slower than Cali so that is the major thing to know. Akso don't pick on the Southern accent---we hate that.
Just want to see if anyone who applied to FAMU received a response to their application? I applied almost three months ago and still waiting?
WVU...for the most part yes. I know I sound hopeful but I would really like to transfer to Univ of MD, GULC, UVA, GWU, or UNC-CH. I took too long to get my apps out due to money shortages, and got dinged at all of the above. Either way, I think I should do pretty well in law school. I recieved my paralegal certificate a couple of days ago and interned at some non-profit law firms. I don't mind graduating from there because the JD/MBA program can be completed in three years, and they also offer a graduate certificate in Forensic Accounting and Fraud Investigation. It takes a summer to complete the certificate in the Business school and it fits with my SEC aspirations.
