BU and BC are my number 1 and 2 pick. This summer I went on the undergrad tour of BU and really liked it. I wish I would have known earlier and would have asked you to some coffee when I was there. Anyways do you feel overwhelmed by the class work of BU Law and how much time it takes? I've talked to a few lawyers and one said "treat it like a 9-5 job and you'll be alright" and another said "your going to have to work your ass off" Just wondering what the workload was. As for apartments, how much would it be to buy one instead of renting in the Boston area?
Treating law school as a nine to five job is a good idea. Of course, this is what I did and I ended up in the middle of the class (which rendered me with fairly few job prospects at graduation). Its very competitive at BU, so you may want to treat it as an 8 to 8 job. Students here take law school very seriously and due to that, its hard to trust anyone and you'll probably fall into the 8 to 8 schedule after hearing other students brag about how much they worked. For me, I just studied as much as I wanted and when I felt I was done, I didnt let anyone keep me from relaxing afterwards.
I think you might be the only person to actually like the BU tours. haha, we dont have the best facilities if you know what I mean. I would rent, as if you do well, you can transfer after your first year. Personally, I would have transferred had my grades been good enough. It makes you wonder what would have happened had you gotten off the waitlist at some of the other schools you really wanted to go to. (BC, GW, GULC, etc.)
