While I obviously need to go visit the schools and learn more about their programs, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the numbers discrepancy?
FWIW, I've seen many people on here predict that in next year's USNWR rakings BC will advance in the rankings to the low 20s. BC is an excellent regional school that places rather well in BigLaw in Boston and even places in NYC BigLaw.

JK, I am actually interested in hearing what people have to say about this as well.
Congrats on your acceptances btw

Academically, I'd say both offer a quality legal education.
