Hi everyone, I took the June  lsats and scored 173.I'm quite pleased with myself (thanks testmasters!). I want to know what are some of the benefits of attending Howard Law when it is ranked 3rd or 4th tier? Wouldn't attending a 1st tier school and being black/Afro-American make you stick out more to big firms? Thanks!

go to harvard law!

not howard!

You are my inspiration! Woo hoo! OK, I'm going back to studying. I'm wasting too much time reading this board.
Anyway, what Burning Sands said. Go to Yale. Please!!! I may need your spot at Howard if I can't move my pratice score (164) any higher. :)

You'll have to excuse me if this seems like a stupid question and I don't mean to offend anyone, but....

Is the name HBCU a hope for the future or just a way of avoiding saying that a school is a black school or what?

No actuall it means Historically Black Colleges and University since there is no such thing as an institution that is designated for only one race any longer.

I know their are no longer schools designated for a single race, but for practical purposes aren't HBCU black schools?

HBCU.EDU,

I have not been to the law school campus, but I have been to the undergraduate campus, and it is a little ummm....scary!  I was totally taken back by the run down buildings and the landscaping.  Maybe I am a little superficial, but it just isn't an environment I can see myself learning in for the next three years.  Did anyone apply to NCCU?  From my understanding they have a pretty good reputation in the NC area.

Regal_Muse,

Congrats on your score!  That is amazing.  Howard is an amazing university, and if you ever get a chance to visit, do it.  I come from a large state school, and the family feeling they describe in their view book was definitely there.  The students were very helpful and friendly, they seemed very engaged in the course material, and they interacted with each other as if they have been friends for years.  They gave off really good vibes.  As far as jobs, it is like any other school.  If you work hard the opportunities will be there.  There are a lot of top firms that recruit there, and you do not appear to be a slacker, so I am sure you will have no problem finding a job with a JD from HUSL.

I have done a lot of reading on Howard, and I attended the open house they had this year, so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

Answer: Yes. Go to HYS or another 1st tier. 

Good Luck.

Regal Muse-

You started something with that post on AA. If they are talking like that on this board, how do you think they are gong to act in law school. Get ready!
