I'm hoping to get a survey of responses on the following questions, so feel free to comment as much as you like.  The results should be interesting for everyone.
What about Syracuse appeals to you?  Why do you want to go there?  What is it about the school?

Syracuse / Cuse vs. NYLS... please give your perspective

I can't decide whether to go to Syracuse (#95) or New York Law School (3rd tier).  I really want to practice in New York City, but I'm not sure which school would give me the competitive edge and the highest salary.  I think I want to go into business/corporate law.  Syracuse has a good business law program, but I hate the location.  NYLS has a perfect location, but I'm worried about the rank, especially since all of the other Manhattan schools are top 100.  However, I think I'd probably have better networking opportunities going to school in the city.  The average starting salary for NYLS grads in the private sector is $95K, whereas for Syracuse it is only $60K, though I think these numbers are skewed by location.  I'm at a complete loss for what to do... what do you all think?  Why do you think Syracuse would be better (if you think that... and if not, i wanna here what you have to say as well).  Thanks!
