I am an African-American student from Chicago who is looking for a school that will provide me with the best experience overall. Social life is just as important as good academics, I am definitely one of those work hard play hard students. This is when this topic comes up. Though I live in a black neighborhood I havent been allowed to be around my peers because my parents do not allow me. I wouldnt mind gaining this experience in college but I fear that academically an HBCU wont be up to par. I also want to experience being around other races because that will prepare me for the workforce. I dont want to be frowned upon for attending an HBCU and miss out on potential job opportunities because of it. By the way I want to study medicine so which type of school would be be st for that path? What are pros and cons of attending both?
