Depends on what type of law you want to do.If you want to do BIGLAW go to YSH.If you want to do criminal law with an emphasis on crack dealing and murder defense, go to a HBCU. It will really resonate with your clients-to-be.
Uhm. . .yeah . . .if you ALREADY think that going to an HBCU will de-value you in the eyes of employers then you obviously don't value your ability to get good grades and network.You know. . .the things ALL STUDENTS do, regardless of whether their school is populated by mostly white or black faces. You are only a Sophomore, like another poster said, you need to focus on your GPA. I know a lot of cats who got high gpas their Freshman year but then DROPPED as the next 3 years went along.. You keep them grades up and go talk to some more people, because the truth is: Unless you go to YHS you will be seen as a BLACK lawyer, regardless of what school you got your degree from[quote/]I dont know why, but something tells me thats pretty credited. its not like white folk havent heard of affirmative action. they will probably assume you are a recipient. and unless you went to yhs they probably wont be too impressed with where you went, unless you can manage good grades there, then it would matter. way i see it is top of the class at a place like howard gets as much respect as someone who just graduated without distinction at your average t-14. trouble is dont finish at the bottom half at an hbcu it will be tough from what ive heard, especially when compared to bottom half at a t14. but really, most people at most schools have it somewhat more difficult if they finish bottom half.
