Which school, BC or BU, places better in NYC?
I think they place the same in NYC, in that they both have the same opportunities and are looked at the same. However, I think BU has more students in NYC by choice. BU seems to be a bit more of a NYC transplant school while more BC kids tend to stay in Boston. NYC is a huge destination for BC though (our 2nd biggest location) and I know a ton of people that had good success there.
Also, USNEWS stated last year that only 77% of BC's grads are employed upon graduation, how true is that?
I am not sure what the deal with that low # is, but it is definitely a big reason our rankings took a hit. I saw the new #s last month, and I think it was around 86% for the last class. So definitely improved on that front. One possible explanation is that we have a larger percentage that do Public Interest, which don't give job offers until later in the season. Of course that doesn't explain all of it, but maybe some. In any event, the #s 6 and 9 months out are in the high 90s%.
Thanks STUJE1 and NUKELAW! Prof Plater seems amazing! Anyway, I think that I will be going to BC. I applied to the PS scholarship too. Can't wait to go to the ASD!
Congrats! You won't be disappointed, I promise (I actually just asked a 1L tonight, who I had convinced to come, if she had made the right choice and she gave me an emphatic "definitely!") I will see you at ASD and let me know if you have any more qs.
Also what is eagleonline?
Eagleionline is an unofficial law school news blog that is run by BC law students. It is pretty cool to keep up to date on all the happenings at BC. It was a bit controversial, since it originally allowed for anyone on the internet to anonymously post, but now comments are limited to BC students (though the articles are open to anyone).
