Fire away with any questions you might have about BC Law. I'll be as helpful as I can.

The law school is on the Newton Campus, which is about a mile and a half west of the main campus at Chestnut Hill.

Newton Campus is small and fairly quiet. Definitely a suburban/neighborhood/campus-y feel. The law school is on the south end of the campus...the rest of the campus houses freshmen undergrads (with whom we share a cafeteria) and has a small/old gym and one or two random athletic fields.

Newton definitely feels more like a small town than a big city, although you're not far at all from more city-esque areas of Boston.

Most of the facilities at BC Law are either relatively new or renovated. The campus and school buildings are conducive to studying, but not much else - you'll want to go over to the main campus at Chestnut Hill if you want more activity.

Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to be more specific about.

As a BU student, I'd just like to state that out of the give school's in the city, BC is certainly the prettiest. Their library is also really well designed, not just aesthetically, but practically.

Can you comment on how BC students place outside of New England?

What neighborhoods are most popular to live?

Have you been able to take advantage of your proximity to Boston?
