Not Being A Party Person At BU (Is fine)

This last weekend was BU Law SGA’s annual harbor cruise. I did not go. This post is about fitting in at BU Law if you are not really a party person (it totally works). A little background: I’m kind of a nerd. I like Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, and anything written by Orson Scott […]

Health Law Association

This year I am taking advantage of my newfound 2L freedom to dive deeper into the field of health law. I’m taking two classes related to health law and I’m the president of the BU Health Law Association (HLA). I first got involved with HLA last year as a 1L representative. Student organizations generally elect […]

Alumni and Internships

Here is another question from a prospective student, as relayed by the Admissions Office: “What kinds of internships do students do? Do you have specific examples of how an alum has helped a student get an internship/job?” First of all, students at BU Law do a wide variety of internships during their 1L summer. I personally […]

BU Law is Friendly: Admitted Students Preview Day

On Friday, the Student Government Association (SGA) hosted a social at a local bar for admitted students to unwind after a day of BU Law Preview Day programming at the law tower. The SGA also invited current students to mingle with the prospective students. A drink with my friends who are in SGA and a […]

Re: The law tower atmosphere

This week I’m writing to answer a specific question asked by a prospective student. Here is a “Question From the Road” that Jeff from Admissions has encountered in the past couple weeks: “What is the atmosphere like? Are students friendly?” I also received a similar question from a friend-of-a-friend trying to decide between BU Law […]

January Discoveries

Well it’s been about two and a half weeks that I’ve been back at the law tower. As the month winds down, here are a few great things I discovered about BU Law in January: 1. The Ski Trip Leading up to the annual BU Law ski trip, we were told that we just had […]

The Time of my Life

Winter break is almost over.  Students of all ages are heading back to school, and those who have had time off from their jobs now find themselves having to return to them.  The holidays have come and gone and a new year has begun.  Many memorable things have happened over these past two weeks.  In […]

University of Where?

We all remember our undergraduate experiences.  For some, being an undergrad seems like a distant memory.  For others, the years in college are still fresh in their minds.  In my section there are individuals who earned their degrees, both bachelor’s and master’s, from universities all across the country.  Each of us represent our schools while […]

Leaving the Library

Unfortunately, I’m getting started on the BU Law blog just as final exams are shifting from a distant worry to a source of daily angst. Since this is my first time going through the law school exam process, all I can offer right now is fearful speculation. As that is far from productive, I’m not […]

Jumping In

Starting 1L year is like jumping in the deep end of a pool. There’s no easing in slowly, no time to get acclimated; you’re submerged almost as soon as you enter the classroom. Inevitably, you spend a few days flailing around. Soon, you learn to tread water. Eventually, you’re back on your feet. My name […]
