This is a retarded argument. It's ridiculous to listen to your justification of why you think
BC is better, obviously you do, you're going there, and that's fine. Maybe BC is better for you than BU, but OP has already clearly and articulately outlined that he prefers BU.
The last TEN years BU has been better, I'd say that's a fairly significant amount of time and plenty of time to change the hiring perceptions of partners.
My entire point was that $15k shouldn't be enough to sway OP if he prefers BU as much as he claims to. That's it.
Fact of the matter, BU is also ranked higher. Granted, the ranking is about as significant as the $15k in terms of how much it should play into OP's decision.
I think so too.
Choose what feels right to you between those two OP.
I think you misunderstand my argument. I was by no means claiming BC's historical rank makes BC the better school. I believe the schools are almost identical in every respect. I was simply refuting your perception that BC is a lower tier one by providing evidence that BC has never left the top 30 since the rankings first began in 1987. As a matter of fact, BC has mostly been ranked between 19-25.
Fair enough? think so.
