For an unranked school in a major market (that has lots of very highly regarded schools) I think Suffolk grads traditionally do OK in and around Boston. By OK I mean may of them find decent work...not necessarily "biglaw." Forget about NYC.
Of course, the way things are now, people at every school are struggling to find decent work. I'm sure the employment opportunities for Suffolk grads have nosedived just like they have for grads of other schools.

IF they offer you a shit ton of money with no strings attached and you want to stay in Boston and the idea of a possible stint of unemployment afterward, followed by a job earning 40 to 60k to start in a less than ideal practice area, then, honestly, the school is fine. Beyond that, I'd advise against it, especially if you really hope to end up in New York...

I just visited Suffolk and got a really bad vibe. I was talking to the students there and none of them liked it, they said that the work load was insane and that they had to take 6-7 classes a semester. They said if they could redo it they wouldn't have gone there which totally turned me off to the school.

You think they're unhappy now.... Wait till they are making payments on their 160k loans while working at starbucks for 12 dollars an hour and 1 bag of free coffee a month..
