You won't find a gym better than BU's. Its not just a gym. Its the biggest and probably the best fitness center in all of New England.

My highschool has a bigger and better facility than WUSTL which has one building for the entire campus. The weightroom is in the basement, without windows, and is circa 1986.

The best thing about the RSF is that Berkeley students work out there. I used to bench like 145 and feel like the biggest beast on the planet.

ASU is nice. SMU is supposed to be really nice. The undergrad students at both of these places are very attractive as well.

Im surprised there was anyone else at all at Berkley's gym. I had a buddy who played football there and hated it because of all the hippies' attitudes toward athletics.

Very true, but the grad school campus at UM-Baltimore has a nice (and I believe new) gym.

Also, of course the Princeton Review survey includes a bunch of colleges that dont have law schools, but the more info, the better.

I wish the compilation was for just t-30... would make it easier (and I could include links), but Ill see what I can do as I wait for my DEC score. Ill be looking up the rec centers of my school regardless, so might as well.

Maybe the hippies would care more about athletics if your buddy and his teammates could stop whining about how people don't love him enough and win more than 5 games in a mediocre conference. What an entitled douche.

Good to know the 50,000 paying fans packing the stadium every home game aren't enough adulation for his arrogant ass. :roll:

First of all, this guy was, statistically speaking, one of the best in the history of his position in the NCAA. Second, this was several years ago. Cal was consistently a top25 contender at that time. Third, I did not assign this negative attitude, nor the label 'hippies' to the entire student body, I didn't even say it was the majority of the student body. Is it not possible for a vocal minority to have a significant impact on the experiennce? And do you really think the haters that I'm referring to would even know the team's record? Finally, the attendance at the game is in no way a reflection of the students' attitude toward the players. They let non-students buy tickets.

"Hippies attitudes towards athletics" does not necessarily infer that the buddy wants a larger attendance. It can mean a variety of things. The hippies' attitude could involve snarky anti-athletic funding posts in the school newspaper, rants about how athletes are held to a lower standard than the rest of the school population, or an overall unpleasant disposition towards the buddy and his teammates during social situations.

Fordham's gym at LC isn't even a gym. Its a closet with a couple of treadmills. Rosehill is much better, but the law school is on the LC campus.

Mizzou's gym is phenomenal: Olympic-sized pools, lazy river, massive weight rooms with the best equipment, tons of basketball and racquetball courts, and just about anything you could ever want or need to meet your fitness and nutrition goals. I almost attended Mizzou for undergrad based solely on their rec-plex. Seriously.

SLU's gym is decent given the relatively small student population. It does the job, but it won't "wow" you like Mizzou's will.

based on word of mouth. i put emory in the ok spot after visiting (and comparing them to my visits to georgetown and duke), but will move them up to good because that would seem fair after what you posted.

do you think trying a ranking would be better to really tell the difference between schools? ... because of the multiple cases where a gym like GULC's doesn't compare to emory/nyu

emory's swimming facilities are top-notch when you factor in the clairmont campus (did you get over there when you visited?). once you're at the gym, it's great. the woodpec is huge, and there are plenty of things to do. but there are some negatives.

1. not nearly enough treadmills. normally the weather is nice and treadmills aren't necessary, and there is also a great indoor track. but now and then you just need a mill, and you can't get one.
2. shared w/ undergrads. enough said
3. location. it's approx 3/4 mile from the law school, in the heart of campus. you can park for free at the lot right beside it, as long as it's after 5:00 PM. otherwise, you're walking.
4. unorganized weight training area. i blame this on the undergrads.

positives:
1. tons of rec/intramural opportunities. and i mean TONS.
2. tennis, tennis, tennis.
3. outdoor and indoor tracks available in same location.
4. if it's your thing, lots of classes in everything from capoeira (sp?) to hip hop to kickboxing. you name it, they got it.
5. there is ALWAYS a basketball court available.
6. indoor olympic pool, and outdoor facilities at clairmont campus (which is even farther from the law school, but still very cool once you're there). emory is GREAT for swimmers.

imo, emory should be considered a "great" gym for the value and variety you get. but it is not an elite/insane gym, like say georgetown's gym.

great info. i played a varsity team sport in the UAA (emory's conference), so I have been to only the woodpec but about 12 times or so...
