As someone who is in all likelihood attending next fall I was wondering a couple of things:Have you found the alumni network to be helpful at all?Aside from the tower, how are the facilities at the school? (gym, health services, etc)I'll be an older student (30) - is there a sizeable minority of older students or just a couple of us here and there?Is there ANY parking at the school? Just want to know when I go searching for housing...Thanks I hope this is helping you get over that f'ing debacle last night....
There isn't really an alumni network in the sense that they actually help much. There are a lot of alumni in Boston and NYC though. But I would never rely on them for anything.

But I would never rely on them for anything. I do have to counter this negative assessment with my own experience. I went to the alum network event in NYC, and people were very helpful for the most part (plus free booze). Some told me where to go to find good outlines (LR database from 2Ls/3Ls). Some told me to send them my resume after I get my first year grades. I got my 1L summer position before grades even came out, in no small part due to a BU partner at the firm I'm joining (he's also an acquaintance of my dad). I'm not trying to discredit Bosox, as much of the information he provided was helpful to me when I was looking into law school. That said, his recruiting experience seems different than most of the 2Ls and 3Ls I know here.
how depressed is your city right now?
