Assuming i get into law school, I just looked at the ABA data 509 reports. Almost every law school I applied for from 20-100 have less than 10 blacks for the incoming class of 175-250.

Jeez, didnt know we were that rare in law school admissions.

+1 I wish you guys were here! But definitely go to the April ASW. They'll keep you busy and you'll have a lot of fun. :-)

CONGRATS!

What's the best way to go about scholly negotiating? Is it better to tell them the exact offer that another school has given you? Or should you just say that it's a higher offer and let School B use their imagination?

I think you say something like "XXXXX Law school has offered $XXXXXXX, I would really like to attend your school so is there anyway that you could increase your offer."

There is a thread on this in one of the other parts of the website.

Thanks! Yeah I skimmed the thread but couldn't find any exact answer to this question, and I figured I'd get a quicker response here.
