...the only thing going for them is apparently a brand new residence hall!
Yup, that's right. I attended their admitted students reception this evening held at legendary NYC law firm Skadden Arps. I was expecting a razzle-dazzle presentation about their academic program, clinics, distinguished alumni (unless you count Geraldo Rivera and George Ross of "The Apprentice" fame), placement stats and biglaw life (there were, after all, Skadden partners and associates in attendance who are BLS alumni), and most importantly, why we should pick BLS over comparable schools in the area. NADA.
Instead, the Dean gave us a 30-minute bullsh*t presentation - complete with a full-color slide show - about Feil Hall, the newest addition to their student residence buildings in Brooklyn. She showed us floorplans (?!) and bragged about the Starbucks around the corner and the new YMCA next door. Non-smoking building. Wireless internet. 24-hr security. "You'll get key cards - just like a hotel!" That was it. The entire presentation was on the stupid residence.
Are you kidding me?! Big f-ing deal. And unless you're fresh out of undergrad and hasn't experienced the wonders of living in an actual apartment, who the hell wants to live in a dorm anyway?
There goes an hour of my life that I'll never get back.
