Data from 2008:http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... hbxlogin=1
BC: "Making big jumps this year in their positions among the top 20 go-to schools were Boston College Law School, ranked No. 15 this year and No. 20 last year, and the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, which was No. 6 this year compared with No. 11 last year. Boston College Law School sent 45.8% of its 2008 graduates to NLJ 250 firms, compared with 36.8% of its 2007 graduates. Some 62.6% of U.C. Berkeley's 2008 graduates took jobs at NLJ 250 firms, compared with 53.7% of its 2007 graduates."
BU: "Boston University School of Law rounded out the list of the top 20 go-to law schools, with 41.2% of its graduates taking jobs at NLJ 250 law firms."

BU is more national and would (I think) place better in NYC, CA, and DC. BC has the stronger "lay prestige" in Boston. The schools are almost identical. Visit both.
