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!
