First of all, thanks for your help. So far I've been accepted to BC, UC Hastings, UConn, Brooklyn Law, and wait listed at Fordham. I still have applications pending at my reaches (UCLA and Northwestern). Assuming that I don't get into either of the reaches, I think I am leaning toward either BC or Hastings, and would like some input.
Ultimately, I would like to end up in back in NYC (I'm a Fordham undergrad). I realize that both BC and Hastings place pretty well in their respective home cities, and I would likely get a job right out of law school in either Boston or San Fran. How easy would it be to lateral from a big firm in Boston or San Fran to an office in NY. Would it be easier to do this from Boston, as BC is a better known school out here? Would it be crazy to pick Hastings over BC as it is lower ranked?
I'm also interested in getting into private international law, which I understand is a pretty vague concept and pretty difficult to get into anyway. Do you think that BC or Hastings would have an advantage in that field?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
