Or is this why BC has never ranked higher than 22nd in the past 10 years and BU skyrocketed up to 19 at one point. ugh...hopefully if I do end up going to BC we can have a competitive class that can rise in the rankings...but if this trend continues...no way am I stuck at a school not looking to move up in the rankings. Not wasting 200k, so I can be without a firm job during my 3L summer.
haha come on man. To be fair, BU has only recently passed BC. They take a very holistic approach. This is only the beginning of the cycle for them.
That's true, but what is inspiring is the fact that they got to #19 at one point. But BC has only gotten to #22...prestige is a factor but $$$ is more important for me. BC is so good in Boston, even the old attorneys in LA know BC but that is an old old generation and they were surprised BU was ranked higher (this is b/c of the fact you were alluding to that BU only recently rose in the rankings). I don't know if these older attorneys will be around, the next generation of attorneys seem to favor BU in LA. Thanks Tram, I will wait it out, I was really bummed not to get any $$$ though from BU...maybe they'll mail it a week later???...but doubt it.
