I did see a few questions and discussions throughout a few pages of the thread I quickly perused and thought I would give my two cents.
First, the grad parking lot next to the law school DOES get full, especially if you try to get spot anytime after 930 am or so. We have hypothesized that the lack of spaces is due to the new parking lot enforcement system (I can elaborate if needed).
Second, there were not many single folks in my class. As this is a concern for some people coming to BYU, know that there were about 30 singles in the entire class at the beginning of our 1L year, and several of them got married during their first year of law school after having already been in committed relationships prior to law school. So basically about 80% of my class was married when we started law school.
Third, it looked like there was a kid who is a non-mormon thinking about BYU Law. I do think that you may be at a disadvantage from both sides -- those mormons who figure out you are not mormon (and they probably will by looking at your resume) will not help you to the extent they would a mormon, and non-mormons will simply assume you are mormon which may negatively impact their perception of you. I am a non-mormon from outside Utah and was subject to these disadvantages at times. Will this happen in all or even most instances? Probably not. But in this economy you should probably avoid anything that will negatively impact your future career. However, it's all up to you.
