Pre-law is a joke of major, find a real major and try again. Also, find a real school if at all possible.

Perhaps the only major that could possibly hurt you in applying to law school is pre-law.

Don't do it.

And Florida State is an Ivy?

No, our football program is actually well respected from time to time. That being said, it's a hell of a lot more respectable that any HBCU, and better than your school... oh... wait... ;) Haint us cause you ain't us.

Also, I'd shoot myself if I had to deal with Yalies all day.

What is the basis for the bolded?  I believe that Howard, for instance, is ranked similarly to FSU, and some historically black liberal arts colleges like Spelman and Morehouse have excellent reputations.  Moreover, study after study has shown that unique educational benefits that cannot be measured by college rankings flow to black students who attend predominantly black colleges and universities (HBCU or not).

The basis is that it's a fact. No one has heard of Howard outside of its region, academia, and sections of the black community, and HUSL is easily the most respectable of the HBCUs with a law school. Everyone has heard of FSU. Insta-respect.

This is patently false.  Howard is well-known across the country.  In any case, a school can be a good (or just "real") school without having widespread name recognition.  Moreover, the OP isn't looking for an HBCU law school.  She is specifically asking about undergraduate institutions.

hey you better not be dissing nebraska!   >:(


that being said, dont you hate it when someone unequivocally states "its a fact!" 

that usually  means that its merely opinion, and not always a considered one at that.
