The student body is not conservative. It is likely 70% liberal or liberal-leaning politically uninvolved people. I mean, there are some libertarians and catholics and secular Jews and Mormons, but you are pretty intellectually shallow and closed-minded if you don't see advantage in attending a school with ideological diversity. BTW, conservative faculty members really just is code for Chicago-school of econ/free market people.
