I've been lurking the board for a while and mostly reading stuff in this subsection. I've noticed a few posts about certain restrictions upheld in some notable religiously-affiliated schools, or some administrations/faculties being very uptight and conservative, and I would like to know more.
My LSAT date is a year away, but I'm guessing I'll score in the mid-160s to low-170s. Georgetown, GWU, and Boston College are among my top schools, and I've heard objections raised about GT and BC on the basis of their religious affiliation, though both have 'diversity programmes' which note acceptance of other religions or no religion at all. I don't think I could deal with going to an institution where the religion of the school was shoved down my throat by the administration or professors, but stuff like crucifixes in classrooms or on buildings wouldn't be too much of a bother. Schools sponsoring/funding/supporting pro-life or anti-homosexual rallies would make me leave in an instant, and I know of at least one school which has had them.
Overall, what have your experiences been in attending religious schools when you're agnostic/atheist/antitheist/not of that school's religion? Should I not be worried, or are there schools in the top 25ish that I should be wary of?
