Malden is probably the cheapest and while not th closest might be a better solution than merrimack valley. I'm still waiting on my suffolk acceptance. I'm surprised that you went to the tuesday open house and no one would talk to you! Some of my professors who teach at the law school will say..."If you want to go meet some obnoxious kids, go walk through the law school." I mostly want to go to suffolk for professors and the facility. The library just opened about 5 years ago and is fairly new so it's one of the best in the city. But as for the students, can't say that they are great. I know a few people who have had great experiences there and loved it, so who knows!
