Does anyone else have any insights on the OP's questions? I'm curious as well...
Many of the blk ppl are children of immigrants, or immigrants themselves or biracial. I think the biggest thing is that most of the kids are sons and daughters of privilege meaning they are disproportionately higher on the socioeconomic scale than the population at large.
That's elite law schools generally, although there are probably more at H because of the size and name.
It's a number of factors (opportunity cost, testing, graduation rates, etc.). The fact of the matter is that most people who apply to and enter elite graduate and professional schools come from privileged backgrounds. It doesn't mean you're disadvantaged if you're poor or whatever; there are just not that many poor people applying. As for the children of immigrants, that's another elite education thing. But I'd rather not get into that. Just know that if you go to one of these schools, most of your future black classmates won't be descendants of American slaves. I think there are like 5/18 of us in my class at Yale. Again, it doesn't mean you're disadvantaged as an applicant...that's just the way the pool is structured.
H is pretty diverse. It has a big class and plenty of black people. As far as other races, asians are well represented but not a lot of latinos.Many of the blk ppl are children of immigrants, or immigrants themselves or biracial.

Lol I was just messing with you. I don't even go to Harvard. If House Boy or Lacoste read this, they can probably answer your questions. I think they're the only Harvardlings around lately. That said, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
