If you can, share with us your 1L experience.
-Are you from Boston?
-What made you choose BC?
-What other options did you have?
-How do you like it so far?
-What are you aiming to do after?

Any insight would be great!

-Are you from Boston?
Not from Boston originally but I went to undergrad in Boston and also worked here for a few years so I've been here for 7-8 years now
-What made you choose BC?
I wanted to stay in Boston and I got into peer schools in Boston, NY and CA (applied to CA just for the hell of it). I chose BC because of the strong alumni network and people are nice. I went to a big undergrad that doesnt have much school pride but for law school, I wanted to be able to reach out to BC grads for networking.
-What other options did you have? peer schools, similar $ to Fordham, BC, USC. full rides to schools below
-How do you like it so far?
I love it so far. We're waiting on our last grades to come in but putting the curve aside, BC is wonderful. People are great. The 2Ls have been SO HELPFUL. One 2L read through several drafts of my cover letter, another read my 20 page memo and helped me edit it, another had a phone conversation with me over break to help me apply to a job, etc etc etc. This is why people come to BC but keep in mind, you have to take advantage of these opportunities!
-What are you aiming to do after?
Big law. It's tough out there. If I get good grades I feel fairly confident because I had pretty substantive work experience and a good resume.. we'll see though! So far, I've done well. not amazing but well. but this last grade will break or make last semester for me. That being said, this current semester is 22 credits vs 12 last semester so I really need to turn up!

Any insight would be great!

Late to the party, but checking in. Applied early January. Visited Boston for the first time a few months ago and loved it.

0Ls! dont read into the complete dates too much. i got in with good money (obviously had better than median numbers) and they dragged me out and i had all sorts of weird dates and was even 'held' at one point. i know its really hard to relax but just try to convince yourself that these dates dont matter and never make sense!
