This is funny.
I am a mac user myself and was in the same situation coming into lawschool. The lawschool i attended said they "recommended" a windows based machine.
First thing is talk to students, students at my school said it was no problem. Also, most schools have a deal with a computer supplier (that's a pc) to sell pc's to students, that is the main reason why they recommend a PC. I kept my mac and am so happy I did. I have had zero issues, and i've seen my friends pc's crash during class quite a few times.
In law school, stick to your guns, make sure you don't let the administration push you around. If you want a mac, get one.
Also, new macs allow you to put windows on them, so if your that worried about it you can have the best of both worlds.
I emailed the IT people at the school. Waiting to hear back.
