Boston University: 271
I did look at the class sizes of school's ranked 15-30. Like I mentioned, maybe I didn't place enough emphasis on the "right" factors in deciding which schools to apply to. I've received conflicting information reading TLS and speaking with law school grads about choosing a school based on a region.
Regardless, thanks everyone for your comments!
As I noted above, all these schools will have very similar student to faculty ratios (in the area of 15:1). You should always choose a school based on the region you want to work in. While it is possible to work outside the region, it is extremely difficult and an uphill battle and so it is not advised. I will reiterate the advice I said earlier:
