Buffalo is not where I want to be for the long-term, or even the short-term really, but wouldn't be entirely averse to spending 3, maybe 4 for a joint degree program, years there. The thing I worry about is an inability to get out of western ny. I plan on working, living in NYC after law school and am a little worried about the job prospects coming out of buffalo. I'm sure that if you graduate in the top 10-15% or so then you will have a lot of doors open but I am not going to take for grantes that I will do that. I just don't want to end up in a situation after law school where my only job offers are in buffalo and rochester.
