“No officer, I’m not on scholarship…”

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Oct 25, 2009 in The 1L Life

In a few previous posts like this one I mentioned to y’all that I work with a statewide student advocacy group called the University of North Carolina Association of Student Governments. We had our October business meeting this weekend (hence the lack of a post last night — I was busy helping dominate everyone at flip cup during the post-meeting party 0:) ) and one of our delegations had the misfortune of getting hit by a car as they were pulling out of a gas station.

Thankfully no one was injured.  The car was no longer drivable, but Enterprise got them a replacement by 6am today so they made it home on time.

Since I’m the guy in charge of the organization, I headed out to the accident scene to help make sure my folks were all squared away. The Durham police officer who reported to the scene bantered with us while filling out his report, wanting to know where I went to school. After telling him I was at the N.C. Central University School of Law, he goes “I’ve heard good things about that school. You must be on a full ride over there, eh?”

I wish :beatup:

One of the weird things about someone with my complexion picking an HBCU’s law program as their top choice is that folks tend to think the only reason you could possibly be there is for some (presumably race-based) scholarship money. But NCCU Law actually has one of the most diverse law programs in the country. And you already know my other reasons for making it my destination.

I’m not sure what the white equivalent to Dennis’s Tyrone would be, but whatever it is — I’m not that guy ;)
