If you had the numbers to get into a regionally placing law school (lower T1 / T2) but not T14 and you wanted to spend your years at law school in an enjoyable environment, where would you recommend?

For example:
U. Hawaii
U. Miami
UC Boulder
Pepperdine
Hofstra - NYC

This is about more than the campus, but if that's what you're looking for this thread may be helpful http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,21499.0.html


How in God's name did Hofstra get onto the list of beautiful places?

They made a deal with the devil.  I think they tagged along with Brooklyn College when it made a deal with the devil in order to top Princeton Review's list of most beautiful college campuses two years running.

That was the exact thing that ran through my mind.  I mean, maybe "fun" places or something, but beautiful?

I think a lot of lower-ranked schools have beautiful campuses because they want to attract students (quite literally).  They try to compensate for comparably low rankings by trying to provide a nice quality of life, which explains why so many students are so in love with their lower-ranked schools, while so many others complain about the Harvards and Yales of the world.

It's not as if they're neglecting their rankings, it's just that they know that have to try harder to attract better students, and part of that involves maintaining a nice campus.  It's not that hard of a concept to grasp.
