I got into both. They're both pretty equal in terms of prestige and placement, but BU had more of what I wanted. I preferred the location, I think the professors at BU rival a lot of top schools, and I preferred the feel/social life. I'm also 2 years out of school, and I think BC appeals to more people that are straight from undergrad because from what I hear its a little tighter, but BU just felt better for me at least.
Could you elaborate on that? What do you mean by tight? Would you say that BU has a more professional atmosphere or something along those lines?
I can't really comment too much as I don't go to BC, but from what I here BC has more of a campus and more of a college feel. I've made a ton of awesome friends at BU though, so its not like BU people are antisocial or anything. In fact, theres a ton of law school events and they're usually pretty fun.
