Its been a long time since I attended the admitted students day last spring, but I was pretty impressed. Coming from Yale, I had a very tough frame of reference, but BC seemed to be the most impressive school I visited. Vanderbilt was great, but TN was not my kind of town. The placement stats for Vandy did not help; too much emphasis on Southern placement. One 3L I spoke with told me to attend another school if I want to work in the Northeast, as Vandy is a school that places extremely well in the southern region, but not the northeast.
I had a tough time deciding between BC and GWU. GWU was very impressive as a whole; the admitted students day was well run. However, the law school was just too big, while the building and the staff seemed much too small to support such a large student body.
In the end, it was the admitted students days that helped me make my decision. I really liked the feel of BC. The location seems like a great oasis to study, similiar to what I loved about my undergrad. I like having the undergraduate campus close by with more facilities to use. I was a little worried about the rankings and BC's drop in the last 2 years, but upon visiting the schools, the admitted students day really gave me a great feeling. I am happy to say that I am excited to attend this fall.
edit: These were the only three schools that I choose to really look at. Attorneys in Boston, NYC, and DC aided my application process, and these were the three schools that they say are well respected in the respective markets and within my acceptability range. I attended the BULS admitted students day, but was not impressed at all, not to mention the amount of attorneys who said that BU should remain a safety school for the schools that I was looking into. I am on waitlists at a number of top schools, but as it is July, I feel that BC will be my LS for the next year at least.
