I am not surprised. I went through the NALP website the other day and only 123 AA men matriculated last year (Fall 2010) at T14 schools. The breakdown is below:

UVA 8
Georgetown 16
Harvard 31
Stanford 8
Columbia 8
Cornell 3
Yale 5
Berkeley 8
Michigan 7
Penn 12
NYU 1O
Duke 9
Chicago 4
Northwestern 14

Total = 123


Totally sickening. I guess that explains why I received waivers from Northwestern and Cornell right before their application deadlines. That matriculation is for all 3 years also I'm sure not just incoming L1's :( :oops:

WOW! That is completely amazing. The distribution is heavily geared to Harvard too. It's very interesting to see these low numbers. Thanks for the info!

I looked it up that was 1L stats smdh! I think Many of the eligible AA males RUN to Harvard and Harvard accepts them with open arms! Makes me think I really undershot my applications.

You guys know that Harvard routinely enrolls the most amount of AAs in the T14, right? They try to pull in at least 60-65 a year. Our HBLSA chapter is the largest in the nation.

That is a pretty big class. I sometimes wonder if schools like Chicago, Cornell or Yale do not even try at all. I know Cornell is in Ithaca and nobody wants to go there - but 3 students? Dang

Well Yale's class size is substantially smaller so that may account for raw numbers. But even so, this is not enough to fully explain the disparity of AA male representation. Ithaca...sucks. It just sucks and I know there have been many instances of publicized overt racism in that locale...so I'm not surprised that AAs decide not to attend. I know nothing about Chicago so I can't really speak too much on it...

All I know is that there are so few AA males in higher education, it's kinda sad.

Just in case anyone wants to see the info, I decided to do the same for AA women. Here are the stats:

Cornell: 14 (It looks like this is an anomaly since the previous classes have 6 and 7)
Duke: 8
Harvard: 40
Penn: 8
Stanford: 13
Georgetown: 38
Northwestern: 12
Michigan: 10
UVA: 8
NYU: 24
Columbia: 28
Yale: 10
Chicago: 5
Berkeley: 8

Interesting...

it's similar to the corporate world. A huge disparity between AA men and women.

I've seen the percentages before but the raw numbers appear much more shocking. For some of these schools (*cough* Cornell, Chicago, Yale *cough*), we really are representing the entire black male population in every class. Great, just one more thing to worry about as a 1L. :roll:

Yeah. It's weird though that some of them are really similar while other schools have twice as many AA females. I wonder why certain schools are able to get those women? It might just be the larger class size though since Georgetown is one of the schools with a lot more.

Direct result of graduate school demographics. It's all cyclical.

Some schools have a huge disparity, others either have one or two MORE black males and some have roughly the same....Penn has more black males than black females. This was evident when I visited. There was definitely a relatively strong AA male presence. I'm kind of feeling Cornell though....very little competition for girls into black guys! :lol:
