I totally know what you mean. I also went to NYU (CAS) but am from FL, and NYC is def. the place to be. I too got into NYLS, and I got waitlisted at Brooklyn. I am seriously contemplating going to NYLS because it's in the city, so I feel you. If it's where you want to end up, its prob your best bet. Good luck.
I just rode down to New York Law School to see the "campus". Its impressive the library looks a bit lacking being that its only 4 stories but regardless most of the information we need we can get via Lexus Nexus.
New York City is the place to be as far as business is concerned. Again referencing the pace of life and firms will see that you went to NYU / New York Law School or Brookyln Law school and realize that you are a new yorker and someone who has a pace condusive to doing well for the firm or being a good attorney. Realize however that your LSAT score or the law school you get your degree from doesnt necessarily mean you will be a good attorney. Though the fact that you are from the area should give you a leg up on your first job.
I anticipate employers seeing your resume will discern that this individual is from nyc and understands our pace of business.
