KHawk,

I insist that you stop telling my age... 

I am not telling your age.  I am telling my age.  As a matter of fact, today is my birthday.  I am a very young 56 years old today.  I thank God for blessing and keeping me in spite and despite of my many shortcomings.  To God be the Glory!!!!

Good Question. When I started my College search in Spring 93 I sent my grades to all the HBCU's in Alabama except Concordia and Stillman. But I got exceptence letters from Miles,Tuskegee,Alabama St.,Alabama A&M, and Talladega. I have family ties to Miles,Alabama St.,NC A&T,and Tuskegee. So I have been surrounded by HBCUs all my life. But my decision was hard to choose after I had visited Miles,Alabama St.,Alabama A&M,and Tuskegee. So what I did I took some small pieces of paper wrote those schools names on them. Put them in a basket close my eyes and  just stuck my hand in the basket and grab a piece of paper. When I open my eyes I saw that I had pull Miles and that's how I got to attend Miles. :nod:

I'm sorry to say no HBCUs were on my list when I was considering where to go for undergraduate study. I just wasn't interested. To the my Mother's disappointment.  :no:  However, I made it up to her later.  :nod:

I choose UC San Diego because it was in my parents' price range, a reasonable distance from home, and wasn't a popular destination among my high school classmates.
  :)

However, here are the other schools I was considering:
Stanford (My first choice but too much $$$)
USC (Too close to home & too much $$$)
Loyola Marymount University (Too much $$$ for a school with no name recognition)
Cal State Dominquez Hills (Really to close to home)

Mills College (Good school but not coed)

“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.” - Neil Gaiman

HBCUs provide a culturally affirming college experience.
