Howard University Law School

Postby king-james » Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:11 pm

Does anyone have any first hand experience or knowledge about Howard Law School. Their OCI numbers look great but what about the student life, career prospects, or overall education? Specifically info about the ADR program?

Those numbers are great for a third tier school with an lsat median somewhere in the 140's. The thing you really have to look at is that those numbers are pre ITE. So that means even in good times, only about 45 of Howard's 150 students were able to take advantage of those 500 OCI employers and get the big money jobs.

Now, it's even less than that. You probably need to be in the top 30 or so total students to get those jobs. When you add that to the fact that Howard gives scholarships with ridiculous scholarship cut offs, it may not be the best gamble to make if you can get into a reputable t50 with money.

Please, please and please, don't apply to Howard. You'll be wasting your time doing so. Just blanket the T-14, I'm sure you'll get into some with plenty of $$$$

Howard is only marginally better than NCCU/Texas Southern which are are notably (although this does not mean much) better than Southern/FAMU.

If you have the numbers to get into Howard, you can get into a T1 school (generally).
