I think this is relevant, as well.

It has been nicknamed “The Boston University Invitational’’ because of how often the Terriers have won the Beanpot.

I took a "law preview" class with somebody who was supposed to be one of the best profs at BU and he scared the hell out of....everybody. I can't remember his name but I wouldn't want to say it anyway. The BC profs I have talked to, however, do not seem at all like this. While they might be more distinguished, I'm not sure if it follows that the BU profs are easier to learn from/more enjoyable.

I think BC does have great professors, but I have been jealous of BU's famous professors. None of my professors sing!

I think it's all subjective. BC prospective/current students will argue that BC is better. BU students will argue otherwise. I think in general, BU does have the slight edge though.

Not in Boston. I agree that the schools are VERY similar and it really does come down to personal preference.

What makes you think BC is better in boston than BU? Besides other BC students telling you that it's true. Don't buy into that like I did.

I think in Boston they are equivalent. I don't think BU has an edge over BC in Boston. BU has an edge over BC outside of New England (NY, Cali), but I think even that is marginal. Historically, at least in 2005 and 2008, BC has had stronger big-law placement (NLJ250)-- although this swings from year to year. The schools are absolutely equivalent in Boston and its all about personal preference.

Also, I dont reach my conclusions based on students. I have developed quite a network in Boston.

It is hard to deny BC's prestige in Boston compared to BU.

I definitely think BC is a great school. But one of the reasons I came to BC was because I wanted to stay in Boston and I thought it was better than BU. But I've kind of realized that BC and BU are at least on level playing field in Boston, but now I of want to mov out of Boston, and I just feel like BC doesn't have as many out of state options as BU

Ah I understand. That's definitely something you need to consider. I think BU will have a tiny bit better name recognition outside of New England. May I ask where you are thinking of working? You don't think it would be better to try and attend a school in that region?

I have heard that BC's prestige is as high if not higher than BU's out of state, and that the only reason alumni are placed in other places is self-selection.
