10. Can you describe the archetypal student for your school?

There is no archetype. We deliberately avoid it. This law school has been open to all comers on the basis of ability since the day it opened its doors. If we were to speak in broad general terms, we could say that our students have high energy and spirit, they value community, they work hard, they are self-starters, and they have an interest in taking advantage of all the things that BU Law has to offer. They come from across the nation and around the world. Students are encouraged to be themselves at BU Law, and the result is an intelligent, dynamic, and eclectic community.
