Is UC Davis/Hastings comparable to Boston Uni/College?

Postby notaznguy » Thu Jun 09, 2011 2:49 am

These schools are of particular interest to me since they generally accept students with LSAT score ranges of 163-167, which is kinda the mid 160s, something I'm hoping for. Furthermore, I'm from CA so Hastings and Davis are both schools I'm highly considering. However, I was also wondering how "good" the Boston schools are as well since they are schools I will also be applying to.

Would any of you guys say that UC Davis is the West Coast equivalent of BC and vice versa for Hastings and BU? UC Davis and BC appear to have similar admissions numbers. BU's admission numbers are higher than Hastings, Davis, and BC however, according to Law School Numbers at least.

From the non-legal looks of it, they're almost like lost twins.

UC Davis = popular sports teams (football), sub-urban-rural area away from San Francisco (but also close enough to drive there), has a "college campus" vibe

Boston College = popular sports teams (football), sub-urban area in Newton/Chestnut Hill (but close enough to downtown Boston to take the train), has a "college campus" vibe.

Meanwhile.....

UC Hastings = ugly tower building for law school, in the heart of the city of San Francisco, reputation for having lots of gunners, and no sports teams.

Boston University = ugly tower building for law school, in the heart of the city of Boston, is known for being more gunnerish than BC, and only the hockey team matters.

other than Hastings being more gunnerish than Davis and BU being more gunnerish than BC... I think that's probably right on

however, legal market in New England > Northern California
