Some interesting facts about Howard Law School

Howard is a national law school that embraces diversity and inclusiveness. Howard Law holds the distinction of graduating more African American attorneys than any other law school in the nation. And while we embrace and are poised to remain the flagship in producing attorneys of color, we seek to share the educational experience and richness that this institution offers with ethnically and culturally diverse individuals. Our approximately 500 students are comprised of people from all walks of life, varied socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientation, and gender identities. We have students from almost every US state and many foreign nations. We have third-generation law students and those that will be the first in their families to hold a jurist doctorate. We hope to learn from the experiences of each and every member of the Howard family so our graduates can better foster positive change in society.

Their deposit is due 4/15/23. I think they’re waiting to see who makes a deposit before they make more offers of admission.
Hey does anyone know how long it usually takes Howard to respond once apps are submitted
@Prxttylawprincess: i have no idea... im still waiting too

I spoke with them during the zoom call today
@Prxttylawprincess: thanks. I called and asked for a refund. They did not answer and have not called me back.

@Prxttylawprincess: I think they will consider the one I turned in? We have been emailing, but the responses are very vague and confusing.
