GW is much more national than BU. Also, if you could get into GW, you should also have been able to get into BC.

According to most published reports, BC places in BIGLAW better.

However, I would suggest the following:

If you want to practice at a big firm on a coast, attend BC.
If you want to work in the MidWest, attend UMinn. (other than Wisc).
If you want to work in Wisconsin, attend Madison.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: GW vs. BC

I almost attended GW, but ulitmately choose BC. I was curious about placement as well when I was applying. My experience has shown me that both schools place pretty equally. I wouldn't stress too much about placement. You want to be in the top half at either school.

Congrats on GW. Hopefully BC will come around.

How much evidence does there need to be for a court to grant a judgment as a matter of law?

Do not rely on specialty rankings. This has been discussed numerous times.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Suffolk Law - Visit Review

Do not go to Suffolk law school in an attempt to get BigLaw. It is a good school for small firm/government work, but the larger Boston firms only hire a single individual from Suffolk a year, if any. My firm, a very large firm in Boston, has never hired a Suffolk student as a summer associate. We have a few alumni who worked their way up after ten years of experience, but even they have pretty remarkable qualifications (like a PhD from Harvard or a technical degree from MIT).

However, if you want to work in Boston and don't care about BigLaw, I think Suffolk is a pretty good choice.

To answer the gym question, I love that BC doesn't internalize the cost of the gym. I would hate it if they forced me to pay for a gym that I am not using. BU makes BUSL students pay for a gym whether or not they use it. I think its great that BC law students aren't forced to pay for the undergrad gym unless the student actaully wants to use it.

BC no question. These are not comparable schools. BU is not even comparable to NEU. Go to either BC or BU if you get  in over NEU.

I chose BC over BU, Vanderbilt and USC/USCLA. I loved my decision. There are only two schools with the alumni strong as ours. Notre Dame and UCLA/USC. I am happy with my decision
