boston pecking order:
#2/#3: BU/BC (equal)
#6: New England
there are significant differences between any of those tiers. if you are get admitted to a higher school go there. the only time to violate tiers within boston would perhaps be suffolk full ride over northeastern sticker, but even that is a maybe depending on your debt aversion and career goals
+1 i would DEFINITELY take bu/bc sticker over northeastern or suffolk full-ride. (northeastern rarely gives any more than 8500/yr though..) i would personally take northeastern with 8500/yr over suffolk full-ride but that can definitely be debated.
i personally wouldn't go to new england at all but i think if you are happy with just practicing law in a very small firm and maybe starting your own one day it is o.k.
