I ran into this link with some cool pictures of different schools.

Going to the admitted students day to check it out and see how i feel, but I am still so unsure. I feel like i may be over-evaluating this decision a little. I am still in between BC and GW and having trouble. The Boston market will probably open up and create new jobs to replace all the lost positions from the bust. Then there is the DC market which is pretty reliabl for lawyers, but seriously flooded from top schools. Does anyone have any compelling reason that made them choose one of these schools over the other?
How about some pros and cons between UCLA and BC. I love both and am having a hard time choosing. Hopefully you can see something that I have not thought of. Is there anything other than where I want to practice, because I would seriously consider both markets as they are both climbing back up out of this crap recession.

Here is a question that I seem to be unable to find, but curious if any knows what the reputation for GWU and Commerical law or/and civil litigation. These are areas of specialization for me, and I have found the right school if I choose boston (bc) but GWU is so tempting that i want to make sure that I make the right decision. I love DC and Boston pretty equally, so that decision is less important.
Finally, what about DC job placement. I can find statistics about GW graduates, but not specifically in what cities they seem to end up in. Does anyone know or have any info on this. Thanks guys! Congrats to everyone and their acceptances!
I have been talking to a few of you about the differences between BU and BC. I spent the day traveling around both campuses. Here is my critique (Only opinions of course, I hope not to offend):
It has been confirmed: Ugliest law school in the country. It is a mid-20th century tower in a very urban enviroment. I loved the location being in the actual city, but the building made me really have to question if this is someplace I want to spend my days studying.
The Law Library was equally as dissapointing. I figured that even if the law library is bad, I could go to the undergraduate libraries. Unfortunately I didnt find them to be much better.
I loved the location, hated the campus (if you can call it that).
Took me about 35 minutes to get there from downtown boston. I timed the trip to see how far it actually is from downtown boston on public transportation. The BC law campus is in Newton, so it is not on the undergraduate campus, which is actually very relieving in many ways. I took the free BC shuttle which took about another 5 minutes. I was a little nervous about the location of BC because it seemed so far from the actual city. When I got to the campus, however, i was pleasantly surprised. Typical Boston College style old buildings with state of the art technology, providing a nice blend of the old with the new. I wish BC were where BU is, but I guess it is an apparent trade off.
The law library was much more impressive than BU. It was larger, especially when you consider the difference in size of the student bodies, and much more quiet. It was comfortable and someplace that you could study.
That being said, I was impressed by the campus, however it seems to be a little far to the point of inconvenientness. I can only wonder where I would live at BC, considering I cannot afford a car. If you want an urban campus, go to BU. If you want a quiet small school, go to BC.
Anyways, just wanted to share. Please do not be offended. These are merely subjective opinions. I hope they help.
