Best Schools with Diverse Student Bodies

Postby drizzle12 » Thu Jan 19, 2012 5:21 pm

Does anybody know of the best law schools with diverse student bodies? Looking through some of the threads it seems like there are a couple of law schools that boast pretty good diversity numbers but it doesn't necessarily show when you're on campus. I currently go to a smaller school for UG (about 10,000 students) and it is about 94% white. As an AA student I want to go to a law school with visible diversity and active diversity groups on campus.

I am interested in hearing about Stanford, Columbia, NYU, Michigan, UC Berkeley, Duke, UCLA, and USC but any discussion/input on any school is welcome. I'm sure other students, especially URM students, may have similar questions. My apologies if this has been asked before.

Hahaha, yeah I knew that looked funny when I wrote the subject but I couldn't think of a better way to put it.

LOL. I'm thinking "what do curves have to do with anything" :P

Anyways, you didn't mention it but Cornell really strives for diversity at their school.

I've heard anecdotally that NYU does pretty good. I'd also be interested in hearing about Stanford and T5.

Isn't this virtually any T25?

I don't have any statistics to back this up but USC does feel pretty diverse.

NU sucks at it, so I guess not.

Yeah like I said in my original post, it seems like schools strive for diversity and publicize decent diversity numbers but student experiences don't necessarily reflect that.

I've heard good things about USC and Berkeley but outside of that I can't find a lot of input on the subject.

Thanks for your responses so far everyone!
