ficials discourage black students from
applying to the University because of
the social climate.
"'BLACK STUDENTS' feel thta
prejudice exists greatly here. They
feel as though they won't be able to
handle it," he said.
But Carswell also laid some of the
blame on black students themselves.
"An education is worth clearing some
(social) obstacles," he said. "The
students who don't do that are cheating
Peter Ford, a resident student staff
member at Trotter House, the Univer-
sity's minority center, said rising
tuition costs, especially for out-of-state
students, are a key reason behind the
drop in black enrollment.
"I MEAN LET'S face it," he said.
"Since I've been in this school, out-of-
state tuition has gone up over half.
That's going to keep people from
Black enrollment levels in most of the
University's schools and colleges are
down. The School of Library Science
reported one of the most dramatic
decreases. Last year 9.3 percent of the
students enrolled in that school were
black. this year, black enrollment only
accounts for 5.9 percent of the school's
In the School of Natural Resources,
black enrollment has decreased by half
This year there are only three black
students enrolled in the school. These
students account for .6 percent of SNR's
total enrollment. Last year 1.2 percent
of the students in SNR were black.
The school of social work also recor-
ded a major decrease in the number of
black students. This year only 8.4 per-
cent of its students are black, down
from last year's figure of 10.3 percent.
In the school of education, the percen-
tage of black students has slipped from
13.3 percent to 11.9 percent.

"(It) kills your enthusiasm for coming
back to school," Peskind said of his
high-paying internship. But he also said
he knows "when you work there they're
not going to spoil you."
ONE ADVANTAGE of working for a
firm outside of New York is that interns
have a better chance of eventually
becoming a partner, according to
If he were to stay on at Weissburg and
Aronson, Peskind said he would have
about a 95 percent chance of becoming
a partner. At most New York firms,
however, he said his chances would
drop to 10 percent.
Although many of the firms consider
the fringe benefits essential to attrac-
tihg top recruits, some University law
professors see them as unnecessary ex-

He also downplayed the fringe
benefits that came with the job. "You
get tired of going to all the social fun-
ctions," he said. "It's not nearly as
glamorous as people imagine."
At the other end of the salary spec-
trum are the law students who volun-
teer their services over the summer or
work for relatively low pay.

people are in it to make money," he
said. "There are easier ways to make

To aid their classmates who do work
over the summer for little or no pay,
University law students organized the
Student Fund Fellowship.
Under this program, students ear-

year about a dozen students shared ap-
