The person who posted that quote is one of the respondants to my post. I am the original poster. If you are curious as to where I'm from, I will say that I have lived near DC for most of my life, but I originally hail from Brooklyn. I cannot speculate as to where the respondant is from.
I know that he was not the OP, but was curious as to his location. He said that he "couldn't tolerate" Long Island for three years so I was wondering from what perspective he was speaking.
By the way, I will likely be attending Hofstra next year. I was accepted to NYLS as well but feel that Hofstra's academic reputation is more highly regarded in the legal community. Job prospects in both Long Island and NYC were also deciding factors for me.
