Why did you pick BC over BU? I think I am in the same boat. Did the rankings make it harder?
Yes, rankings made my decision a lot harder. I went into the application process with my heart set on BU (mostly because of the rankings and location), but then I went to visit both schools. I was surprised by how different they are, especially when everyone says BU/BC when they talk about where they applied, what they are considering, etc.
Now BC is not perfect, but it is more my style-- more professional, congenial, laid back. It did oddly remind me of high school-- lots of pretty, white, wealthy kids-- but I was comfortable and that made all the difference in the world. I don't love the location, but I will deal with it.
I have posted about this before, but I REALLY didn't feel comfortable at BU. The students seemed distraught, young, and smack dab in the middle of BU UG, my personal hell (think annoying girls in pink sweats and prada bags talking really loud on their cell phones about An TUa Nua last night). The library and classrooms were the pits.
After the visits I began to accost the thousands of lawyers I know in the area. There is lots of respect for both schools, and I don't think that employment or salary is going to differ mcuh regardless of where you graduate (assuming you would try equally hard at either school). BC is ranked lower-- so what? Five years ago, when BU was ranked considerably lower, the employment and salary stats were STILL THE SAME! It didn't matter then, it doesn't matter now, and it won't matter in three years. The reputations are virtually equal. So do what makes you happy.
