Clerkship placement - BC
Placement in DA's office - SAME
Placement in Southern California - BU no question here.
Placement in DC - BU - tons of federal attorneys.
Social Life - No idea, but BU's anti-social rep or whatever is completely unfounded and just TLS mythology.
Lay Prestige - Depends. In Boston, yes BC. Outside of Boston, its definitely BU. Our placement is much more diverse than BU - more to DC, more to CA, more out west.
Attractiveness of female student body - if you like white pretty Catholic girls, then BC. If you're more into the alternative look, BU.
Ray, that chart you have.. the updated one has BU ahead. They flip flop for biglaw placement. Leiter says BU beats BC consistently for elite firms. Take it as you will.
