This is a great post. It's all in the numbers kid. Howard #4? LOLOLO :D :D

Here's the link about Black Enterprise's ranking method.

I agree all those schools are great. All kidding aside, that's a great honor for Morehouse.  It's great that all those schools are doing well.

I still haven't figured out how Black Enterprise does their rankings...interesting that FAMU is the top ranked public HBCU.  All those schools are great schools....our HBCUs have turned out wonderful leaders...

just pray that you can recite.. torts, contracts, property, civ pro, and con law as well as you can your Morehouse history :o
We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...

I'm a Morehouse Man so my natural ability to recite torts, contracts, property, civ pro, and con law is self-evident.

Yeah, but the fact is that the black enterprise ranking is what schools are best for black students to attend. Not which schools offer the best overall quality of education. Second, there is no way you can even compare Howard to Morehouse or Spelman. Those are liberal arts colleges. We are a National Doctoral University. I hate to break it to you, but that means Spelman can't compete with Howard.

I don't want to take anything away from Morehouse. Alot of my boys go there. Its a hell of a school.  Hell, my mom went to spelman...but if you're talking about the undisputed top HBCU in terms of quality of academics, resources, and opportunities...then you're talking about howard. Period.

Was the first President of Howard University Black? I thought the school was run by white men at its inception

Good points...I think comparing a liberal arts school to a school whose emphasis is in math, science isn't particularly valid. I know my alma mater's emphasis is on their school of business, college of pharmacy, college of nursing, school of architecture and other hard sciences (engineering, etc.).  I know Southern is fast moving up in the sciences too.

I have to agree with Mr. Galt. When compared to other HBCU's, no other institution can parallel the vast array of opportunities afforded to Howard's students.

But I think we're losing sight of the most important thing: the common thread that binds all these schools together, and the unique pride we feel in being associated with any of them.

Look here young Man. Morehouse and Spelman are ranked #1 male/felame because they offer the best quality of education for African-Americans in the country. I unerstand that Howard is a university and yall have a med school, and law school, and business school. However, you can't @#!* for Morehouse. Our UG program is simply better. Get me a soda Howard Boy.    

1 Accredited four-year colleges or universities with an African American student enrollment of at least 3%.

2 Colleges or universities that did not meet criteria one, but are large or well-known (e.g., the University of Southern California)

The goal was to be as inclusive as possible while targeting schools that would be of interest to black students.

We surveyed 1,855 African American higher education professionals with titles such as president, chancellor, and provost, for their assessments of the social and educational environments of the nation's colleges and universities for African American students. Each school received a rating from 2 (strongly recommended) to -2 (strongly not recommended) with 0 being neutral. Schools were categorized according to the college classification protocol developed by U.S. News and World Report, which is a modified version of the protocol developed by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Survey respondents were asked to rate only schools that they were knowledgeable about.

The BE top colleges list was developed by Thomas A. LaVeist, Ph.D., professor of health policy,management, and sociology at Johns Hopkins University, and CEO of DayStar Research. LaVeist is the author of DayStar Guide to Colleges for African Americans (Kaplan/Simon & Schuster; $20) and co-author of 8 Steps to Help Black Families Pay for College (Princeton Review; $13). The list, based on the DayStar rating, was calculated by developing a regression-based, weighted, multiplicative index combining four variables:

This is about the schools overall quality of education. Morehouse is ranked #1 for that my friend.  

1 The school's five-year graduation rate for African Americans

2 The school's percentage of African American undergraduate students

3 The school's average survey score for the school's academic environment

4 The school's average survey score for the school's social environment

I don't like to get into comparisons amongst HBCUs, unless we are talking about football or Bands, because we know EXACTLY which schools suck. Each HBCU is different and has a different mission.

Yeah, the first president of HU was white. But, the first black president of HU, Mordechai Wyatt Johnson, was a morehouse man. Don't ever forget that John! Yall couldn't even pull a president from your ranks. You had to come to Morehouse to get anything done. Boy dont bite the hand that feeds you! >:(

I agree. It's all HBCU love.  ;) It's a family thing you know. But, we are #1.
