Yes, BC placed about 5% better in the NLJ250. It's always weird seeing some of the schools near the bottom of this list - schools way outside the Top 100 place more than 5% into NLJ250 firms. Franklin Pierce, West Virginia, Duquesne, Syracuse, Cleveland State, and Loyola (New Orleans) are the main surprses. Howard's is the most out-of-place, but realizing it is a HBC, it makes more sense
Back to Boston. If you look at slightly older rankings, BC and BU can flip-flop year to year, they are probably the two most similar schools in T1. Same metro, very nearly same medians for acceptance, same salary medians, same Biglaw placement, BC a bit more gov't, BU a bit more PI.
