Catholic over Howard anyday... esp. w/$$. If you wouldn't mind going to Cleveland I'd take Case over both of them... but if you really want DC then Catholic has a much better rep.

I'd go to Howard if I had to choose between the two. Howard has a good reputation, as well as legacy. Their bar passage rate is good as well.HU has some excellent job placements and there are summer job programs offered in various cities that are exclusive to Howard Law School. There International Law program is decent and since you're looking for an HBC experience you know that you aren't getting that at CAU.

Since you're interested in International Law the location of HU's law school is unmeasured as well. It's across the street from the Embassy's of Ghana and Ethiopia. Less than ten minutes from Embassy Row.

Case is an upper tier 2, I'd at least give them a visit before ruling it out.  otherwise Howard--btw try to see if they'll give you some aid given both the Catholic and Case offers.

Thanks everyone for your input. I've been away from my computer working and visiting Case. I've been to both Catholic and Howard before. Visiting Case put things into perspective. The city is crappy, but the school has a lot to offer. I spoke to Howard's financial aid and basically I have no chance of getting as much as Case is offering. Prospects after graduation are good at both places so it's still a toss up. . .

awww. Cleveland's not that bad.  :( I live in the DC area now, so you can definitely take that into account, but its not crappy. there are things to do and see and cool people esp. if you get to know the neighborhoods. little italy is nice and nearby. i lived on the east side and there are places to hang out. i think anyone of them would be a good choice. i heard that case is not necessarily a good place for black men. but if you talked to black students and they seemed happy, then I would take that into strong consideration. the only thing about i know for sure is that the school is mostly tech nerds, so you might have to leave campus to find parties and stuff.

Hmmm. . . Is Case not good for black men or blacks in general, and how so? I admit I was exaggerating a bit about Cleveland (I'm partial to D.C.). As far as the students, they seemed happier about the financial aid and the prospects after graduation than about their current situation . ..

well i have friends who went to school in the area (the institute of art and case) and some of them had problems with the police on campus b/c they're constantly afraid of folks from East Cleveland coming thru and wrecking the place. its not that different from other city campuses i've visited though. i guess howard would be different b/c its in the hood, and the school is black too. so you can't really do the whole racial profiling, pull over every black man you see type of thing.
