Ok, so I have put in my deposit at BC and I am perfectly happy attending there in the fall. I am however on 4 wait lists, UPenn/Michigan/GULC/Cornell, assuming my Cornell "reserve" turns into an official wait list. I am fairly sure I want to go into some type of BigLaw. I like Boston and would not mind living here for the near future.
I guess my question is if all of these schools are easy picks over BC at this point. BC has given me a great financial package and the campus/area suits me well. I have many ties to the area, so the Boston area would be the obvious first pick for a job after school. I have heard that due to the majority of Harvard grads going to NYC, that BC (perhaps an argument for BU) is the top dog in Boston if not New England as a whole. I am just wondering if all of these factors bring BC up into the "T-14" level of the other schools in my scenario.
I have throughout this process assumed I would automatically attend the more prestigous schools, I just want to make sure that logic is sounds. Oh, and no I am not a rankings whore, I picked BC over GW and BU.
Let me know your thoughts.
