Michigan is virtually unrepresented in Boston, as is Penn (could be self-selectoin, but who knows). There were a few Cornell people in the summer class, but if you're looking at MVP range of schools and would rather do that than take the $ at BU, I strongly recommend taking UVA over the other two if you want to be in Boston.
Penn student here who can verify the self-selection idea. Here, it's NY/DC>>>>>>>>Philly>>>anywhere else. Out of probably 225 students doing OCI, it seemed like the same 10 or 12 students interviewed with all of the Boston firms, and each student has ties to the region.
I'd agree about UVA and Boston. Who knows why there are so many UVA lawyers up there, but I probably met at least as many UVA interviewers than any other school. That's not to say that M and P won't get you a lot of callbacks and offers though, it's just that there are many UVA Law grads in Boston.
