I have officially decided on BC Law and I am REALLY excited. I just got back from Georgetown and Cornell, and the trip solidified my choice. I'm happy to be remaining in Boston for the next 3 years, and hopefully longer. 

I graduated from MIT and I will be living in the clevaland circle area.

As to Snuvy's question, Boston College is a feeder into the Democratic party in Boston. All of the Boston schools are liberal, and you should not be worried about the religous aspect of BC. My friends from BC Law say religion is more of a peripheral entity, not a central focal point. Any student who is not mature enough to handle your sexuality should probably not be going to law school yet anyway.

See you guys next year!

I also need to get a room soon. I hope to live within a walking distance from Law School.
MITgrad; Did you get accepted to Cornell and Georgetown and turn them down? Or did you  visit there just to look around?
Anyway there is at least another MIT grad among L2 or L3, he is Korean American.

Snuvvy; Is MITgrad's assumption correct? If so. it makes two of us.

I was accepted to Cornell and G-Town, but have chosen to attend BC instead. I want to stay in Boston and I recieved a decent scholarship from BC. It was a tough decision, but I like the atmosphere at BC and it was my target school when I first began this journey, although it was ranked much higher at the time, I am sure it is merely underated on USNews.

It must have been a very tough decision to turn down T14 schools. But I would dislike the location of Cornell-deep, deep into the mountain, and GUSL's reputation for its cutthroat competitiveness. I also turned down a few schools ranked above BC,,but they're not T14s. At the moment I'm weighing beween UMN and BC, I feel like your choice is making my decision easy and clear.
Most likely, see you in the fall in Newton.

It was hard, but not that hard. The rankings and/or T10 are not all that matters in choosing a law school. The 15-25 range of schools will readjust every year; I believe making yourself happy is more important than some article in a magazine. Plus, you should take into account scholarships. :)

I heard people say UG defines who you are and Graduate school defines your career (or path?). You already went to MIT so nobody would doubt your intelligence no matter where you may end up.
I also went to a very very prestigious university.(hehe. ;)And I also fully realized that school's prestige can't guarantee happiness.You should be happy with where you are and what you're doing and who you're with. and last but not least, who you are...
I hope you're happy with your choice for all three years in law school and thereafter.
And I hope so about me too..
