GreenvilleOnline.com - Clemson to offer mentors for minorities in pre-med, pre-law

The number of black students admitted to medical and law schools declined this year as schools suspended or curtailed affirmative action programs while awaiting the U.S. Supreme Court's summer decision on admissions at the University of Michigan, said Frank Matthews, a Clemson graduate who is publisher of Black Issues in Higher Education and a law professor at George Mason University.

The trend could continue in coming years while medical, law and graduate schools "fashion their own admissions criteria" and lower courts determine "what is an acceptable application of that courts ruling," he said.
Clemson's mentoring programs are similar to what some historically black colleges and universities - notably Xavier University of Louisiana - have done for years, Matthews said.Xavier sends more than 100 black graduates to medical schools every year and has "carved out a niche" to attract top students from across the country.
"If Clemson can carve out a competitive niche, they can get those sharp students who know early on they want to go to medical school, they want to go to law school, they want to be doctors, they want to be lawyers, they want to get Ph.D.s in biomedical research," Matthews said.
