Hi all..after reading this thread from beginning to end, I have a couple questions for anyone willing to give an answer. I have applied to go to Howard Fall '10. I have completed one semester of law school at a different school already, but withdrew because I hated the atmosphere (probably not a good reason to withdraw, but because I was not comfortable with my surroundings, focusing on the curriculum was extremely difficult). I went to an HBCU for undergrad and thought I had enough of the "black college" life and therefore did not even apply to any HBCU law schools. I LEARNED A TOUGH LESSON! From day one at the school I attended I felt like an outcast and hated the feeling. I was a member of the school's BLSA and tried to maintain a balance through that organization, but it did not help. So after a full semester behind me and a few months into my second semester, I decided to withdraw from law school. I felt as if the legal profession was not for me even though it has been what I wanted to get into since I was younger. My grades were not bad at all, but as previously stated, I let my surroundings get the best of me. I want to do a fresh start as a 1L because although my grades were okay, I feel as if I made the grades to get through and beat the curve...My questions are as follows: 1. Does anyone think that my previous law school experience will hinder me from being admitted into Howard? 2. How good are my chances of getting into Howard with a 145 LSAT and 3.4 UGPA?
