BU Law... What do you think about it?
« on: May 28, 2004, 11:08:18 AM »
Hey Guys.

I'm trying to decide if I should go to BU law... what do you all think of it?

I know its technically a top 25 school... but is the median starting salary REALLY $125k?  (This is really important to me as i HAVE to pay off my debt as quickly as possible).

What is it's national reputation?  Is it a national school or do most of it's grads end up in Boston and NYC?

Thanks!!

its not a national school but the BU name is very impressive in the northeast. the 125k is year is for top graduates who end up in the private sector, so it doesn't apply to everyone. but you gotta factor this into the equation as well: since a lot of BU grads end up in boston and nyc, a lot of their salary goes to the high cost of living in these cities (cost of rent, etc).

you're really fortunate to get into BU though. they get a sea of applicants and are total lsat whores. mind if i ask how you did on it?

I didn't really study for the LSAT very much (and I kick myself now for taking such a laid back approach), but I did score a 167.

I'm on reserve at Cornell too... but I don't think I have much hope of getting in.
