Not co concerned with the isolation. For me it's even an adventege for W&L
How accessible are BC alums in your experience?
Very much so. I combed thru the alumni directory on Agora and contacted alums in my home market that are doing the sort of work that I am interested in. The Philly BC Law alum network is fantastic--everyone I've been in touch with has been incredibly friendly and helpful, and I've set up phone convos, lunch dates, etc. In fact, I got my summer gig thru an alum, who interviewed me over the phone and offered me the position on the spot!
Legal eagles reallllly take care of their own, so use that to your full advantage should u choose BC.
