well, these are all good schools.  Georgetown probably best and the others all very solid schools right behind it.  i think fordham and bc are probbaly just as good as notre dame, but notre dame is more national and has much better lay recognition.  i imagine naotre dame is the only one that's really "Catholic" though...

GULC is only nominally catholic.

You also forgot a whole host of catholic law schools: Catholic, the various Loyolas, Ave Maria, etc.

I've heard ave maria is AWFUL..weird and overly religious. Sort of like a Catholic version ofRegent (or Regis, whatever it is). I feel like the Jesuits are best at educating people for the real world as opposed to the Catholic world. I'm Catholic so I'm allowed to say that.

Yeah, Villanova won't let students work on women's reproductive issues during the normal 40 hour workweek or receive any credit for same because of their feelings on abortion.

So how Catholic are these schools? My experience here at St. John's has shown VERY little religious appearance at the law school (the occasional crucifix in a teacher's office, Christmas trees and wreaths around the holidays, a few random priests occasional passing through the halls)... and absolutely no religious influence on the subject matter or classroom discussions.
So what's it like at other schools?
