"Howard University School of Law was ranked No. 31 on this year's Go-To Law School List. Some 15.04% of its 2010 graduates got NLJ 250 jobs, and it was the third-cheapest school among the 50, charging $24,490 in 2010 for tuition."

Considering that 80% of the school is black it makes sense. Howard is a good school and biglaw firms have minority recruitment.

I'm pretty sure it's Howard's Top 15% who got the BigLaw jobs.

This has been discussed to death on these boards. That being said, my pointing this out probably makes me "anti-urm," right Bruce?

I've heard that a lot of recruiting at Howard is for staff attorney, as opposed to associate, positions....
