Yes, Davis is a very nice, laid back college town, and a great law school. I don't know much about BC to compare, but I can assure you that Davis is an excellent choice. It also places well in the bay area, a lot of SF firms do OCI at Davis, so it's not like you'd be stuck in Davis forever. If you do decide to go to Davis, I'd reccomend looking for housing fairly soon. Being a college town, housing is very cyclical and many students line up fall housing in the spring. Good luck!
