kindly keep your opinions to yourself, especially when you know nothing about the rivalry. we have a major hockey rivalry, and we play each other every year many times, including the highly competitive bean pot, and the games are always rowdy and sold out and fun. we're not questioning the quality of their institution, but rather keeping a local athletic rivalry alive with friendly banter, which clearly is above you. boston college is clearly the undergrad winner, and bc law actually places better in boston in big firms, but no one is down playing the quality of education one will receive at bu law. it's people like you who turn it into something more than it is, a testament to YOUR insecurities and lack of knowledge in these matters. if you're calling BC a lesser school you have something wrong with you. if you're solely referring to the law school, they are roughly equal, unless those 4 ranking spots really mean that much to you that you feel somehow falsely superior. if you're talking about the undergrad institutions, which seems more likely due to your uva/vt reference, how about looking at duke/unc? can you say unc trumps that up more than duke just because duke has a higher ranked UG school? i dont think so. its an athletic rivalry. and bc is superior as an UG institution anyway, so either way, if the 'inferior' school is emphasizing the rivalry, i would believe that would be you. you lose. thanks, and kindly leave our BC thread and stick to your BU one.
First, I never knocked BC or anything so don't make assumptions about me.
Second, I am only talking about law school rivalry so your whole post about hockey or undergrad was pointless.
Third, I never said BC was the lesser school.

. If this comforts you in making your decision than so be it. I never talked s*it about BC or anything. In none of my posts you will see that. Now YOU are the one trying to justify BC is the better law school by mentioning job prospects. And I do view them as equals so what is your point?
Fifth, please next time read my post more carefully and keep your emotions in check. I came here surprised by all the BU negativity while the BU class 2011 is free from it. Why is that?
