I always think it's an interesting conversation to have especially since research has shown that top schools like pulling from certain, mostly Ivy League, institutions. I enjoy discussions in which there's no definitive yes or no answer because I think seeing how other people think and analyze the same set of facts is fruitful. But I'll let up for the sake of harmony, and let's face it - I'll rep my HBCU til the day I die so I probably wasn't that persuadable from the jump. Lol
It's all love ITT .
+1 just a friendly discussion girl! I see you reppin hard
Does that give me leave to keep talking about this? Because I was having quite a bit of fun. Lmao. I'll just keep going and y'all tell me when to shut it up.
I think this convo is helpful to future applicants in that it helps you weigh all your options. I was born Black. It's not something I can change prior to applying to law school, but it's interesting that it does play some role in the admissions process.
If you look at the list of where students at HYS are coming from in terms of undergrad, the same schools appear frequently, and Howard, Spelman, and Morehouse make a good showing. Not in large numbers perhaps, but they consistently appear.
Yes, but I think this more because of the number of applicants coming from these schools. Obviously a place like UC Berkeley isn't going to have a ton of black matriculants because there are hardly any black undergrads to begin with. It's like what I was saying earlier, if ad coms want to recruit URM students, they'll email HBCUs because it's the easiest surefire way to reach a large number of potential minority applicants.
