My two cents...I work at a law firm in Boston of about 65 attorneyes. I"d say about one third of the attys here are from NESL, one third from Suffolk, then the rest are a BC/UConn mix with about 10 people from around the country (GW, Georgetown, Texas, DU, CU). The firm does very well and so do the attorneys that work here. At they are all equally respected, and their opinions all heard. No one looks down on them, and if anything they are the ones who have had to do more grunt work than the ones who went to BC and had an advisor to hold their hand all through law school. NESL students (my boyfriend was one, two of the attorneys I work for went there too) work HARD. Their schedules are demanding, and I've heard classes are rewarding. That said, yes, it is lower on the totem pole than the other schools, but only those Managing Partners who are too busy to stop and look at a resume will see NESL vs. BC student (for example) and automatically take the BC student. The Boston market is saturated with NESL grads and they land good jobs.
The school itself is in a weird location, and a small building off the beaten track, and on a bit of a loud street. Aside from that, I haven't heard too many complaints.
I hope some/any of this helps?
I'm still stuck between Catholic and UC Boulder. Ugh.
