- People have commented that the Boston legal market is hard to crack.  Why is that?  How can you "crack" it?

Saturated market.

- I'm aware BU/BC grads rule the Boston legal market, but how to Northeastern grads fit in?

Far behind BU/BC.

- If you are going to a law school outside of Boston and NYC, how hard is it to get a BigLaw job?

I don't really know how to answer this as there are MANY biglaw markets that are not Boston or NYC.

Dude...don't go to Northeastern full sticker. That's not good decisionmaking.

ETA: lady, have you called GW and asked to talk to someone planning to practice in Boston? Or someone from Boston who hopes to practice there? Or anyone at career services?

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Is Boston harder to break than NYC?  Or DC?

I suspect that NYC is the easiest of the three big north-eastern markets (NYC, Boston, DC) to break into.  My reason -- NYC has the largest number of big firms and thus the highest demand for new associates.

On the other hand, Boston and DC are smaller, so it will be harder as many people also want to work in those markets.
CLS 2011.  All done.
