Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Barry or Coastal?

Neither. Your chances of getting a decent job graduating from either schools is not good.

From the ABA Journal.
Among all the accredited law schools with merit-based scholarships, these 25 schools had the worst retention rates for entering students in 2011:

Akron (21%)
St. Mary’s (21%)
Howard (24%)
St. Thomas in Florida (24%)
Texas Wesleyan (28%)
George Mason (32%)
Rutgers-Camden (32%)
Barry (39%)
Florida A&M (40%)
Santa Clara (40%)
Chicago-Kent (42%)
Pacific-McGeorge (42%)
Catholic (43%)
Charlotte (43%)
Arkansas Fayetteville (44%)
Western State University (45%)
UNLV (46%)
Brooklyn (47%)
Chapman (48%)
Hofstra (49%)
Idaho (49%)
Seattle (49%)
Golden Gate (50%)
John Marshall (50%)
Texas Southern (50%)

Schools with 100 percent retention rates: UCLA, University of Minnesota, Emory, University of Arizona, University of Colorado, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stetson, Vermont, Liberty and South Dakota.

There are a lot of us news lower ranked law schools that have good placement rates on this list.  West Va, LSU, South Tex, Ark, Campbell, etc

Probably not a good idea. However check the school's placement rate on Law School Transparency. A few low rated law schools do have good job placement rates.

De finitely retake. NYLS does not have good job placement. Take an LSAT review course.

It's very risky going to a new law school.

I would not go to law school if my only choice were Widener.

The Faculty Lounge has the Class of 2012 ABA Employment Report cleaned of law school funded jobs here  It ranks 201 law schools.

I would go with Cardozo especially if you want to work in NYC.
