Tell me about law schools in Boston.

I've done the research. I've read the guides (ABA, Princeton Review) — and I've lived in Boston my whole life, so I wasn't starting from scratch. I know that if you want a career in politics, you start with Boston College; if you want a firm job, Boston University can set you up; if you plan for trial work, you'll meet your colleagues at Suffolk; and if you can't get admitted anywhere else, you can settle for New England School of Law.
I already have a good idea about my list; but if there's anyone on AskMe who can offer insight or personal experience, I'd be foolish not to listen. Assume that you're talking to someone who has a snowball's chance at Harvard but who stands a reasonable shot at any of the remaining five. I'd appreciate anything you can tell me, from firsthand insight to secondhand feedback. Thanks in advance.
For reference, here are Boston's six ABA-approved law schools:
- Harvard Law School
- Boston College Law School
- Boston University School of Law
- Northeastern University School of Law
- Suffolk University Law School
- New England School of Law
