BU vs. BC vs. WUSTL ($$) vs. Notre Dame ($$)

I didn't think this would so difficult. I really have no geographic preference, although it would be sweet to go to school in Boston. All four schools seem very similar on paper. Tell me something that makes one school better. Make this a no brainer!

I think what matters is where you want to be and what you want to do. ND and WUSTL place in chicago, and BC and BU place in Boston and NYC. Check out their OCI numbers too - do firms you'd like to work for interview at the schools?

BC and BU place slightly better than the other two schools, largely due to being in the North East. They feed into large legal markets. Between those schools, I would visit. They are very different and you should choose the school where you feel most comfortable.

This chart should be interesting, as it ranks the top schools regarding placement in clerkships adn law firms.
