Yeah I live in Boston and it has the most beautiful campus out of BC, BU, Northeastern, and NE law. It is in a brand new building right in the center of downtown Boston. It really is nice, you should definitely take a visit!

Is Feb 24 just a regular tour date? or is it for admitted students? I was trying to find an admitted students tour online, but I don't see it anywhere.

nope, just a date I decided to take a trip out there, I live about 4 hours away. I couldn't find an admitted students day either, maybe that info will come later? When I called admissions it didn't sound as if many/any other students would be touring with me, but it would be nice to attend an event with other prospective students. We will have to keep a look out for one

On Feb 10th there is going to be a mock class with a tour afterward. I don't think it's just for admitted students but hopefully there will be a lot of perspective students going. I'm gonna go and check it out.

This is what it says on their website: Event: Mock Class featuring Professor Glannon
Please join us for a mock class with Professor Glannon on February 10 from 6 - 7 pm in room 295. RSVP to lawadm@suffolk.edu.

I'm pretty sure I saw somewhere that there will be a tour following that as well

Nicer than BC, really? I have never seen Suffolk, but I love Newton Campus of BC.

I guess it depends on if you want to live in the city or suburbs. For city living standards suffolk is in an awesome location right in the heart of downtown in a beautiful new building. BC is in a residential area and in older (and IMHO more dumpy looking) buildings. BC is in creepyish religious looking buildings that bring me back to my catholic HS days. maybe it's just me but I didn't think it was that nice there. I also went to BC right before it started snowing so it looked kind of bleak and stark there so maybe I just visited at a bad time.

As someone who does know Suffolk fairly well I will admit Suffolk has an amazing building.

At the risk of appearing like a forum troll and a gunner, all at once.... is anyone preparing/reading for the mock class? How "mock" will it be? Bringing a notebook (this seems reasonable)?

RSVP'd to the event this morning. Admitted to SULS with good merit $, at cost-benefit Suffolk might outweigh my other acceptances. Hopefully will meet some people at the event next week!

Answered my own question. Got an email from Suffolk with an attached PDF from Prof. Glannon.

On the evening of Thursday, February 10, I will offer a sample Torts class to give you a taste of the first year law school experience. The class will be held in Room 295 in the Law School. It will begin at 6:00 p.m. and run for about one hour.
The law of torts is about holding actors liable for injuries they cause to others. Since the days of Oliver Wendell Holmes, torts have been conceptualized in three categories, depending on the type of "fault" required to prove them. These include intentional torts, negligence claims, and strict liability claims (which do not require fault to impose liability).
The most ancient of torts are the intentional torts. Intentional torts include (among others) assault, battery, false imprisonment, fraud, defamation, interference with contract, trespass, and others. To be liable for an intentional tort, the actor must have acted "intentionally." “Intentional” has a limited and rigorous meaning in this context.
To prepare for this class (it is law school, after all!), please read the opinion in Garrett v. Dailey, which is attached to this memo. The opinion is written by one of the Justices of the Washington [State] Supreme Court, explaining the court’s reasons for reversing the trial judge’s decision denying recovery to the plaintiff, Ruth Garrett.

Did everyone get the letter from financial aid about their priority deadline on March 1st or is this standard mailing for all applicants? I'm just wondering if I'm reading too much into it?

I got it yesterday. I assume it went out to either everyone or everyone that isn't already complete with forms. I was incomplete at the time, I just submitted the Need Access thing yesterday, which is the last thing I needed.

Have you been accepted? I was just curious as I haven't received a decision from them as of yet but they sent this letter? I also still need to file my taxes in the next few weeks :/

Yeah, I got my decision about a month ago. Though, I wouldn't read too much into it, they need everyone to submit by March 1st and they do say to file and don't wait until you're accepted on their website. Sorry, Good luck though!
