And maybe if you're super-climate-sensitive, that could be a factor. Otherwise, it's the last thing you want to be thinking about. Plus, it's not like there are many campus-specific factors that affect your education. Most reputable law schools are going to have big-ass lecture halls, big dumb libraries full 'o' reporters that would crumble at the touch from lack of use, etc. And caring about the nightlife, scene and recreation around the law school suggests to me you probably just shouldn't go to law school.

If the schools are otherwise identical for cost, employment prospects, etc I guess it couldn't hurt.

You are the worst

Yup, and I graduated magna and on law review. Law School is a professional school, it's not college. I had fun in college. GL.

as an international student i am not able to visit any schools before enrolling. it just means you have to research more in other ways (look at their website, talk to admissions and current
students or alums etc). its a bit different but i didnt visit any colleges too (attended a u.s. institution for undergrad) and was fine then too
