I've been out of school for a while, and having attended a large public university I was unable to get letters from old profs.  I used employers, and got accepted at most places that I applied.  I agree that letters from profs would be better, but if you don't have that option I don't think letters from employers will really hurt your chances.

You sound like you were very happy with American before the boyfriend thing.  Don't ever plan your life around a man that you're not married to.  If you go to Rutgers and regret the decision you will resent the boyfriend.  If he loves you he will want what's best for you.  And you'll still be close enough to see him on weekends.  Chances are you'll be too busy with school to see him during the week anyway.  What does he say?

I'm in a different situation that Spartacus.  I'll be starting law school at thirty and have been with my boyfriend for three years.  I'm leaving Delaware to go to Ann Arbor, MI.  My boyfriend doesn't want to quit his job to move to a small college town, so we'll be trying the long distance thing, at least for the first year.  If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. 

You can use your student loans to pay for housing.  At NYU, however, I think you have to send in a housing deposit along with your tuition deposit, which is before most people get their loans.

I'm moving from Delaware to Michigan in the fall.  Luckily, I will be living on campus which simplifies the move a bit, as I don't have to go out early to find housing.  But I did visit in the spring before committing myself to three years in a state I had never visited.
I have no plans to live in Michigan for the rest of my life.  If you choose a "national" school you can more or less choose where you want to live and practice.  The majority of Michigan grads practice in New York, and many go to Chicago, California and D.C.

6 weeks, 5-10 hrs/wk
The last week - one practice test/day

NYU doesn't exactly have dorms but they do offer on-campus housing in apartment buildings.
As far as top 14 schools - I know Michigan has the Lawyer's Club which is their ls dorm.  And doesn't Harvard have dorms?
