My recommendation depends on where you want to practice. Outside of New York I'd suggest going to Tulane. If you would like to practice in New York I'd suggest Hofstra.

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.

I applied to so many damn schools because I bombed the LSAT. Of course, maybe that's because I didn't prepare for it. Live and learn.
I would definitely take the test again as long as you seriously commit yourself to studying for it. No one likes to study but the LSAT is a test that can be learned to a certain extent. That's what I took for granted and now I'm living with the consequences of not preparing adequately for it. Good luck.

Albany is the best place to live, Syracuse has the best name recognition nationally, and Buffalo is the highest ranked and most affordable. If you plan on staying up-state, I'd go to Buffalo. Plan on practicing in NYC or out of state, I'd go to Syracuse. JMHO.
Well, my parents are from Iran but I'm not Persian. I'm Assyrian, which ironically is an ethnic minority group in Iran. So what does that make me in the United States? I realize technically I'm a Middle Eastern Caucasoid, but there is something not right about identifying me as such on my applications. So I marked myself as Other.
