I'd choose RUN. I already go there. I choose it over several NYC schools mainly because of the money. In my personal experience RUN places very well in NYC firms. I know many students who have and will be summering in NYC. I did so as well. I worked at a law firm before LS and many of the attorneys spoke well of RUN.
Although the school is in Newark, potential students should really come out and check the immediate area. Its not the Newark you see on TV. Yes, its nearby, but its not the same. Safety hasnt been a concern for me. And I usually walk to the garage down the block at 1 in the morning where the streets are empty, and nothing. Similarly, SJU is located in in a nice neighborhood, but if you walk over the Grand Central and a few blocks south, you'll be in a not so nice area. No biggie.
In the end I guess it depends on what you are looking for. I was look for the best bang for the buck. I do not regret taking RUN over higher ranked schools. I love it. I decided to stay in NYC and commute to Newark. The drive is about half to 45 minutes. An my way back at night i get home in around 20 minutes.
I know this is general info but im running out. If you have any questions let me know.
