Congrats!

Question for people who have gotten the phone call, which number did it they call? IIRC, the app let you list a home number for your current address, a home number for your permanent address, and a cell phone number. For those who listed something under all those, which did it come to?

For people who have gotten merit based scholarships, has it primarily come after the acceptance letter? Got the phone call last Thurs and the letter today but no schol. info. Hoping to get some. Wonder if I should give up hope though

Hey! Sorry to ask this if it's already been talked about ad nauseum, but is this the typical amount of time from application complete/ready for review to decision? ~ 1 month?

Thanks!

I'm not intending to stir anything up, just sharing what I was told and trying to get opinions.


Partners do not control hiring at firms. The Chief Legal Recruiting Officer is responsible for these decisions and they are all up to date with the rankings/reputations of the schools they draw from. Partners get a chance to interview those going for associate positions and their input is critical, but the decision ultimately falls on the head of recruiting. The head of recruiting is also responsible for offering interviews. So in this instance unless BC is a feeder for a specific firm BU's better rank/numbers/rep would win out.

I absolutely disagree. If there are two students, one from BU and another from BC, with equivalent class rank, I dont think BU automatically takes precedence. These schools are roughly equal. Additionally, their LSAT median is both 166. BU's GPA median is .2 more than BC..not very significant. BU is a tad bit more national, with ties to NYC and California. BC is primarily Boston. If in the above example you were talking about the NYC or Cali market then that would be different.


This reminds me of the washington and lee v. william and mary debate. The schools are roughly equal but then comes lay prestige. Unfortunately, BC wins lay prestige hands down.

I dont want you to think im advocating BC here. I am trying to make an unbiased choice myself between these schools. It is just very difficult because they are so equivalent. For me its going to come down to "feel".
