Yeah I liked the female professor that taught the course. I think the best part of these admitted student receptions is talking to the other kids. Lots of valuable input. I also liked the post reception open bar. I was able to talk to some of the students and they all seemed really upbeat and friendly. Wish I didn't have to drive 100 miles or I would of had a couple more brews.

Where do I go to get a "Legal Eagle" T-shirt? What's the deal with sports tickets?

Ari Gold went to Michigan and he's the man.

I go to school in Hartford and the entire city is split in half between Yankees fans and BoSox fans. The atmosphere in sports bars is about two steps away from a full brawl any time the two teams play one another.

I would have to agree on some accounts. The students they had speaking seemed really laid back and nice kids. Although you have to remember that at these ASR the school is putting their best foot forward. I go more to check out the school and get a feeling for my classmates than to hear their "pitch". Unless they do a horrible job and don't seem to care about me, I don't take much stock in those weekends. I work at admissions at my undergrad and they go all out to try and cover up the bad parts of the school and shine on the best parts. I still think BU is a great school, but I'm a country boy at heart and BC's campus is more appealing to me.

I warn you, I am a rabid pats fan. Although I only hate Yankees fans. Any other fan of any other team in any sport I don't mind. I don't mind Bills, Giants, and Mets fans at all.

Just my two cents, but I've gotten into both schools and received identical aid packages. In this case I think BC has the edge due to prestige. Especially in Boston BC is regarded as the next best school after Harvard. It must be remembered that BU has only recently started to rise in the rankings while BC has been a top school for decades. This adds up to alot of alumni support in high places throughout the Boston community. I don't know about other cities, but BC has a long standing of producing top lawyers. This isn't something that just goes away. I don't know how much stock I put in US News and World Report because they don't factor job prospects as much as they should. Look at W&L for example. Clearly BC gives an individual a better chance of entering a high paying market at a big firm but W&L is higher in the rankings. I know there are other factors to consider and the two schools are almost identical, but I'm leaning towards BC due to prestige, location (BU Law School Building is hot and ugly), and slightly better job options in Boston. I hope this helps!

Yup I'll be there. Planning on partying with my buddies at BC that night too.
