Maybe it's just me (and I'm trying not to be biased here...) but to balance out the posts.  I haven't really had any negative interactions w/the admissions or finaid folks at BLS... either over email or in person...

Get SCUBA certified - it only takes a few weeks, the certification lasts a lifetime, it's fun, and trust me - there is nothing like being underwater at 70 feet and looking up to see the surface of the water as your ceiling.  Awesome!

How is it getting from Park Slope to Brooklyn Law?  Or from other parts of Bklyn to BLS for that matter?

the posts about the "bashing email" seem to have come out of nowhere.... what is this referring to?

any BU off-the-waitlist admissions offers being given?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Suffolk vs. Villanova

Your quote "somewhat interested in practicing in Boston" actually makes me recommend against going to Suffolk.  If you aren't definitely sure that you want to stay in Boston, then I would absolutely say go to 'Nova.

As I've been deciding through this process, I actually met up with a 'Nova grad who is working at Bingham, the largest firm in Boston (I live in Boston as well..)

So if you want to work here, it's not impossible from 'Nova at all.  But if you aren't sure, I'd definitely say go to the best law school that you can.  People in Boston I'm sure have heard of Villanova Law (seems like they have a decent rep along the East Coast and definitely in Philly), but I'm not sure how much it goes the other way.

The advice I got from a law professor at BU: Go to the best law school you can.  This is definitely true if the costs are the same, as you've mentioned.  The posters above have good points too.
