Rigth now, it is a toss up between University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State and University of San Francisco.  Maybe you already stated this, but where are you going again?

Hello everyone!  I think I read someone on this board is from or currently living in Sacramento?  I am in Sacramento as well, at least for the moment.  It looks it will be either, University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State or University of San Francisco for me!!!  Nice the chat with some other future black attorneys, especially women since I am female and I don't meet a lot of us!

Well now you have met 2 more!  ;D

916 - I think I've seen you around on here before.  What's up again.

So Nupe you are looking to go in the Fall of '05?  By the way I am the Assitant Keeper of Records for the alumni chapter here in KC.  Ladyday and Lavia are my partners in crime here on the board and we're always looking for some new recruits. so holla back.

I know this is a bit off the topic, but are there any Blacks/African Americans attending McGeorge this fall?  I was just admitted to the part-time evening program, my first choice!  I am so excited.  Sacramento is my home and I want to continue working with my current employer.  I've got bills to pay, including the 19,400 part-tiime tution at McGeorge!

I won't be going to law school until fall 2005 but I am applying to McGeorge as well. I heard its a really good school and I would appreciate if you shared some insight or your feelings about the school.

Hey everyone,

It's so nice to see so many African-American, future attorneys! Big shout-out to all the Greeks on the board (I represent DST 10-EB-Fall 99) and all those "Southern Folk"!  I will be attending The University of Oklahoma Law in the fall, so all you Rocky Mountain Region BLSA folks, look for me!  To DNW2007, I know several of the people in the Texas Tech BLSA chapter, so I'm sure that I'll see you at some point during the year.  Good luck to everyone on the board in your 1L year!

Delta Law,

I visited OU ls. Actually, it's the only ls I've visited, because I was out that way this past April. If you don't mind me asking, what other schools were on your list and why did you pick OU? Their new library and renovations really make the school look well endowed.

jd4me,

OU Law has a beautiful campus, and a very active BLSA chapter. Here are the schools I applied to and my status:
SMU Law- accepted, no $$
University of Houston- waitlisted
South Texas College of Law- accepted, $5000
Texas Wesleyan- accepted, full tuition
Oklahoma City University- accepted, $2000
OU Law- accepted, $2000
Texas- BIG rejection!

I chose OU because the facilities are top-notch, the professors and administration are very helpful and knowledgeable, and a law degree from OU is portable throughout the Southwest region.  I hope to go back to Texas to practice, and many of the Texas BIGLAW firms hire OU Law grads. And, to be honest with you, paying out-of-state tuition at OU costs about the same as all the private schools, and SMU Law is about $10,000 more per year than OU. I felt very welcomed by the BLSA people when I came for my campus visit, and several of the students have kept in touch with me since then.  I believe I made the right decision!
