From all rankings I've ever seen, BU is the better school
This is where current law students post. Most current law students applied when BU was ranked in the 30 to 40 range. BU is not a good school. it merely cutt its class size in half to better compete with Harvard and Boston College which have dominated the boston legal market for the past two decades. EX = Ropes and Gray Boston, highest vault rating for a firm in Boston, hired practically all Harvard and BC alumni this summer and only around four BU grads.
