Then I would go to Northeastern. Another option would be to call BU and see if they'll let you in. I am assuming you are on the waitlist at BU. You could also take a year off and try to get into BC or BU.

Off-topic question for you BC/BU people who are responding to this thread. I'm posing this question to you since you're familiar with the Boston legal market. Everyone mainly has been telling me to attend GW, but LSD is focused on national job prospects, so I'm not sure this is the right advice. Basically I have been continuing my research.
If I want a Boston job, would it be better to go to Northeastern than GW? I spoke with someone in legal recruiting in BigLaw and they said if I want a Boston biglaw job, I should "hands down" choose Northeastern over GW if given the decision. What do you guys think from your impressions?
Neither can I.
In interesting read can be found here.
I don't think you should put too much stock into either school. You need to do well at eitehr school to get BigLaw. This is the same for all schools in the T30. I wouldn't get too upset that BC does marginally better than our school.
I don't subscribe to that - I can't see!
I am not sure what Bosox' deal is. I agree totally that placement from BC and BU is the same (though I firmly believe that there is a marginally better chance of getting a boston job from BC and a national job from BU). Why do you keep ripping on BU, man? As I mentioned in another thread, in my V15 firm, we have 21 BU grads, but only 4 BC grads. It's only one anecdotal firm, and I am sure that firms with an office in Boston would have the opposite placement statistics, but still, it says something about BU's placement Vis-A-Vis BC. Are you sure you are not just assuming that the grass is greener on the other side?
I'd be totally happy to go to either one of these schools.
