i currently run 4-5 days a week (usually first thing in the morning).  i'm hoping to continue as a 1L. 

but as a back-up plan, i want to rent an apt. about 10-15 miles away from school.  this way, if i don't have time to run, i can at least bike to school and back every day. 

"I also got money at WUSTL (none from BC), and I REALLY liked the atmosphere down there.  I have significant ties to both Boston and Chicago (my family and my boyfriend, respectively) so my decision is quite hard."

another benefit of WUSTL is that they have a ton of money to attract good students and, supposedly (according to them), some big name professors.  even though they went down in the rankings this time around, i have a feeling that if they continue to use their money wisely, they will be bound to break in the top 20 again really soon.

that being said, i'm really hoping BC starts offering money (i.e. to applicants like me).  despite my affinity to WUSTL's atmosphere, i want to stay near family/friends in rhode island.  money from BC would really help their cause.

and one final thing, for no clear reason, i believe that going to BC would involve living with a roommate (to be able to swing rent).  i would LOVE to live on my own, which i think would be possible in missouri.

that's sooo weird :o!  talk about professors not giving a poop about their students!

hey guys, so to respond to everyone: 

funny funny- oops... it is on the 1st!  i changed the subject to reflect that. 

karita- the rankings situation doesn't really bother me at all.  BC is a really respected school; people who went there work at top firms all over the country and "those in the know" consider it a super solid place to earn a JD.  to quote a well-known wall street economist/theoretician, "if a BC grad were to become a supreme court justice nobody would think twice about it."  and also, didn't bc go up two points in the rankings??  i speculate they'll keep moving up to their old position. 

miller- as of now i'm leaning a  little towards wash u over bc, but this may quickly change on the 1st.  the reasons are that wash u has a beautiful campus, happy students, a solid philosophy department (i'm thinking of a joint degree), a great reputation and a happy hour with the professors every friday (i'm not so much interested in the happy hour itself, but rather in what it indicates about the campus atmosphere).  also, wash u offered me money which definitely helps.  see you guys on the 1st!!!  :)   

how does that work???

Andrew, Thanks for running this badass site!  And I promise to start posting on the Student Board as soon as I'm a student!!  ;)

i'm still waiting on a bunch of schools.  unfortunately, the only ones i still care about are probably going to be dings.
