I'm not sure, but 96% of the class is URM... take it for what it's worth.

if a non-URM were to attend HUCL and graduate near the top of the class would they get the same attention from top recruiters or do recruiters go to HUCL specifically to find quality black lawyers?

Instead of instigating, you should have simply asked, "what did you mean by this statement?" I have no problems w/ URMs but UR a Moron.
There was nothing in Ivan's original statement that implied that he had a problem with URMs. Anyway, Howard's racial/ethnic composition is:African-American: 85.1%American Indian: 0.4%Asian-American: 3.5%Mexican-American: 0.0%Puerto Rican: 0.0%Other Hispanic-American: 3.1%White: 4.3%International: 1.7%Unknown: 1.9% I think there is little doubt that it is at least a little more difficult for white applicants to gain admission than for minority applicants. I'd have to believe that race would not play a factor in your law review selection however. And there might be a slight disadvantage when employers are going to Howard to specifically recruit black lawyers. All that said, Howard's instructional quality and reputation exceed its ranking and you'd have a very unique experience studying law there. In fact, it could be advantageous in that it sets you apart from your peers at other comparable law school.
I never implied that Ivans statement was against URM's. Please read the post before you decide to argue for someone. I simply asked a question. Is there a law against asking a question?
