Thanks for the answers. I like what I have heard about Wash U and want to tour the school when I drive through on my trip to U Chicago and Northwestern.

Is it true that Wash U is constructing a new law school building? Didn't they just build the current one like 10 years ago?

What is the university campus (as a whole) like?

It's an additional building that will have more classroom, offices for student organizations, etc. The LS will share it with another department. The main building is new, maybe 10 years old.

It's hard to describe the campus. Lots of gothic architecture. The school owns a rock quarry so as to make all the buildings look similar.

What is the faculty like?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Scholarship at T20 or T10?

This is hypothetical, and I know it to be.  Assume all of the following is true.

I have absolutely no interest in Biglaw.  None.  I will not sell my soul or my life or my marriage to make extra bucks.  I have a strong interest in environmental public interest work and government work at a livable wage.

I have the credentials to attend a T10 school.  Not HYS, but possibly CCN, and definitely MVB.  I would also be applying to places like Vanderbilt, WUSTL (I am from St. Louis and would be thrilled to work there), Minnesota, and UIUC.  I would also be applying to the University of Missouri-Columbia as a safety, where I would be almost assured of receiving a full-ride scholarship.  Mizzou places well in local markets.

Where would be the most cost-efficient school to attend given my goals?

Why deal in hypotheticals? Why not apply to all the schools you have listed, see what offers they make you, and then compare them? You may get a full ride from a school you didn't expect any money from or you may get dinged at a school where you thought you would get a full ride.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Most Conservative T14?

I would say Chicago if you mean "conservative" in the traditional or legal sense. If you mean which T14 school has the most Republicans, I would say Duke or UVA.

dropping your median by 2 points at a time when everyone else is adding a point is unexcusable.  now there is a quantifiable justification for students to choose bu over bc.  i understand considering soft factors etc but in the end thats not how the game is played, lsat/gpa are what potential students, us news and employers look at.  i hope they play some serious catch-up this year.

If this were a long-term trend, I'd worry about BU overtaking BC in terms of local rep.  However, in the short term, I don't see it making any difference for students -- except that it means it will be slightly easier to do well in terms of class-rank -- which is far more important than any potential short-term shift in school rep. 

This would therefore actualy make me favor BC over BU even more.  This assumes, of course, that you want to work in Boston. 

Favoring a school because your classmates will be stupider. Not the best logic.

Anything north of south carolina is not the south.

Live with it.

Two of the most "Southern" states in the union, Tennessee and North Carolina, are both north of South Carolina.

Denver BigLaw is hard to crack in general.

Probably HLS and not Y or S; and/or URM and/or very early in the cycle and/or amazing softs and/or fake profiles.

Yep, you are right. I just scanned through and it seems that nearly all the sub-3.5 admits had one or more of the qualities you listed.

am i the only one who thinks that a 3.5 is not a low GPA?...especially in the sciences, its particularly high....you dont see it too often...eh..oh well

Not good enough for HYS.

Really? I thought I saw a few HYS admits on LSN with 3.5 or below.
