what's class rank? seems like you could get Boston Big Law with top 5-10% at Suffolk? Plus full scholly you'd be in a good position.

Seems like you already have Boston ties (which is a help). Is Suffolk pre-select? Do firms you want to work for actually come on campus to recruit?

The theoretical argument for tranfering (imo) would be access to firms you otherwise wouldn't sit before (can't get an offer if you're never interviewed).

I know a few top students from suffolk came to BC and managed to grab big law......they hustled there asses off though. I assume the same is for BU. Its a 100k gamble tho.

That's a small sample of firms. I'd chat with your professors - even administrators at school - to 1) get a better sense of where your 3.9 places you in the class distribution and 2) get a sense if anyone would speak on your behalf to firms directly (preferably an adjunct who recently has practiced - maybe a legal writing professor - who has the finger on local firms).

If you really are that top person or two in the class of ~400 (so safely w/in the small sample Suffolk places into large firms annually), I think you stay. If you are close, but on the outside looking in (statistically), that's when the marginal improvement in firm access at a regional like BU/BC would be more appropriate.

Requires granular, school-specific intel though.
