Is it my imagination?
« on: April 24, 2009, 03:49:32 AM »
...or is there a dearth of older Black and Hispanic students (especially males) at the very top law schools? How many Black or Hispanic men over 45 study law at one of the so-called T14's? I've seen older white men and women, but no Blacks or Hispanics over 45..

There are not too many people of any particular race at that age.

I can think of a grand total of 5 people above 45 in my school (and that's including people who may be younger for whom I am guessing their ages). I think the sample size is way too small to draw any conclusions.

That's true. And it's a shame, b/c some of them might be very well equipped, so long as their brains have remained sharp. I was just looking through some brochures and websites and I noticed that I never see older Black and Hispanic men and women at the top schools.

I can only think of 3 that MIGHT be above 45 at FSU.

I'm not at a top-tier school but I don't doubt you. We have students who fit that demographic where I go but the extended division program works for them since most of the students going part-time have families and other responsibilities so they cannot just quit their jobs and go to school full time.
