I know that the school associates itself with religion, but does that come across from the student body? The faculty? The teachers?
I'm from Boston and would like to return for law school. Trying to decide between BC and BU.
It is not very religious. When on the undergrad campus, you'll notice the occasional priest walking around, but that is about it. BC and Georgetown are pretty well known for being less religious than your typical catholic university (Notre Dame, etc.). It is also extremely liberal, but being someone from Boston, I am sure you already know most of the Boston area schools have that liberal atmosphere.
I couldn't tell you much about the make-up of the student body becuase no one ever really discussed religion.
As for between BC and BU, there are a number of threads on the subject you check out. I had to choose between the two myself and chose BC even though BU offered more money. You'll find people who did the same or did the opposite. It is all a matter of personal preference. I highly suggest you visit each school to get a good feel.
Agreed. You could walk around the law school and nothing would suggest to you that it's affiliated with any religious institution. The main differences between the schools will come down to fit.
