Thoughts on Schools
« on: December 10, 2009, 01:48:37 AM »
AA/female
BS Poli Sci and Vet Sci- 3.0
MBA- 3.5
I am considering South Dakota, Lewis and Clark, NCC, John Marshall Atl and DePaul
Does anyone have any advice? One of my professor suggested not applying to HBCU's because I have undergrad degrees from FVSU 05. Please give me your thoughts. ???

I wouldn't recommend any of those, but of course, that depends on your LSAT.

I was curious why the recommendations against HBCU's?

Are you talking to me?  I'm not against all HBCUs.  I sometimes recommend that people go to Howard if they can't get into a t14.  My recommendation above was just a general one against going to law school if those are your options and you can't improve your LSAT.

I'm sorry, I guess my post was a little ambiguous.  The original poster said she had a recommendation from her professor not to apply to HBCU's. I was wondering if her professor explained why.

But your insight is definately useful for her so she could make a well informed decision. I attended an HBCU for undergrad, so I am kinda biased in supporting HBCU's at all levels.
