I know two people, both top 20% at BC who are graduating this year with nothing lined up.
Moreover, BCLS was ripped up by a BC 2L in his own topic:

Seems like only the top 10-15% are faring well, and outside of that it's hit or miss. Plenty of LR students don't have jobs.
I don't think there are many better places than BC to go to school, but before considering which law school you would like to attend, you must evaluate whether going to law school in such an uncertain job environment is worth the extraordinary investment.
I say none of this out of frustration, as I do have a summer offer. I am only warning you that while campus life is great, job prospects right now are not.

A partner at a prestigious firm in Boston, during my callback interview with that firm, questioned why anyone would pay the extraordinary expense of law school given employment prospects right now. They are not bad for just the bottom of the class, or median. Firms have cut down their class sizes significantly, and there is no indication that they will be increased to a point where law school will become an attractive investment in the near future.
So while the majority of your classmates make plans to live at home while paying back that $200,000 to BC. I'll take my chances at Suffolk with a hefty scholarship.
Ha typical Suffolk law student oversight-- our names are completely different.
