You said you didn't study or take a course for the LSAT.  If you're not happy with your prospects, would taking the LSAT again and reapplying next year be an option for you?  Just a suggestion.  But I also agree that those jerks who call schools third tier toilets are just elitist assholes with their heads up their asses, ignore them.

Yay Boston!  I'm in at NU and BC, still waiting to hear from BU, but I'll definatly be somewhere in the city this fall.  I left for four years and can't wait to get back

Right now I'm deciding between Northeastern and BC.  My parents live about 40 minutes outside of Boston, and they'll let me live there for free, which is amazing, and I'm pretty sure I could live there relatively conflict-free.  If I end up at Northeastern, I'll be taking the commuter train, which goes pretty much from my house to NU, and if I go to BC I'll be driving, which will be a little more of a pain, especially at rush hour.  After the first year, I'm going to see how the finances and everything are working out and decide if I should move to the city or just outside the city.

Think about whether or not, during your last semester, you're going to want to have four tough classes when most other people have super easy classes and are going out every night.  I'm not taking overly tough classes and I'm finding it very hard to motivate myself to do anything at all.  Once the acceptances started coming especially, I want to do the bare minimum to graduate.  In a tough class, thats a lot more work.  I think your best bet would be to mix it up and take half of the hard classes now and half later, so you also don't kill your gpa

Thanks guys, anyone have any other opinions?  I thought for sure my mind was made up, but now I'm so confused!

All along, I never thought I'd get into BC.  Today, they shocked me (just like Nova shocked their bball team last night, ha!) and I got an acceptance letter.  But I really like Northeastern and their coop program, plus being downtown and all.  Would I be stupid to go to NU over BC?  All things being equal, which do you think I should choose?

He's male.  He was on the wrestling team and loved his time there a little too much.  Just barely made the grades to stay on the team, graduated last may and still doesn't have a job.  He's currently working at Hertz.  College was lots of fun for him though!

I haven't looked at either school specifically, but I've visited Springfield once (I have a friend at WNEC undergrad) and I don't want to ever go back.  To me, it just seemed dirty and, as a female, I would never want to walk around any part of that city by myself.  Bristol, on the other hand, is one of the jewels on New England (this coming from someone who wants to get back to New England asap and never leave again).  Sorry I can't provide more info on the schools themselves.

Speaking of the commute, the Septa system is in financial hell (as I'm sure you know) and within the next few weeks there will be no or very limited R5 service to Villanova on the weekends, so you might want to take the uncertainty of septa into account

About two inches, and a nice coating of ice on top of it.  I knew deep down that it wouldn't be enough to close the university, but I held out hope...
