Understood;however, the undercurrent of some individuals' assumtions are: simply because one attends an HBCU, one's career, future, life, etc., is forebode to disapointment and failure. I unequivocally rebuff that notion.

I don't think anyone is making that assertion. You are attacking a straw-man. I think everyone can agree that there are wildly successful graduates of just about any law school. That doesn't change the fact that there are some law schools (not necessarily southern- I'm not even very familiar with the school) that are ex-ante poor decisions to attend for 90% of matrculants. Some will nevertheless beat the odds leading to an ex-post assessment that the decision to attend the school was a good one.

Well, you need to use a little more specificity. Tell me about the school(s) that fall into this so-called category--that are ABA accredited--that you are familiar with. Moreover, I'm not attacking a "straw man," your sentiments just probably coalesce with the above vainglorious, biased opinions; who chose to pillory SULC, in an effort to place themselves and their alma mater in the firmament of ABA law schools. Go to the website you provided: If it's fait accompli to attend LSU versus SULC, why do so many LSU undergraduates hold SULC J.D.s?

I don't believe for a second that 25% of Southern's graduate make $135 per year as their first job, or even $70K. 

It should be a crime, in my personal opinion, that they would flat out lie (or make others believe) that 75% of their graduates will have a $70K job waiting for them when they graduate.


However, you agree with all the other data U.S. News & World Report provides?

These three individuals graduated from SULC in '06,'07,'08. They are working for whom? Umm Sidley Austin LLP; #7 vis-a-vis the top 250 U.S. law firms. Making how much? $125,000. So WTF are you clowns talking about?

http://www.sidley.com/ourpeople/List.aspx?Schools=5401fe55-6200-48dc-833a-08a748bad6c2&SortBy=Level


EDIT: They started out at 160K

This disproves nothing that's been said. If anything, it reinforces it.

I LOLed the whole way through this post.

What paradox? That some schools are poor decisions for 90% of their students?

...that more than a battery of individuals holding LSU undergraduate diplomas, also hold SULC J.D.s. Why didn't they also pursue J.D.s ............at LSU, or Tulane, or Loyola?
