Because it's a small cost compared to the benefit of adding just one more diverse member to the class.
Exactly. My point is that there exists such a benefit. Firms do not give out tons of offers to Howard students but they go there anyway in hopes of grabbing a top performer. They want these particular top performers (as opposed to New York Law School, Hofstra, Stetson, name your TTT) because of their URM status. Not to say they are just getting the job because of their URM status but the reason why SO MANY firms flock there is because of the diverse nature of Howard's student population.
