dooders, I'm not in yall's shoes, but were I, the decision would be easy. there is prestige amongst attorneys, and then there's prestige amongst laymen, and H wins the battle both times. there's no way I pick NYU.
also, and this comes from XO, there are horror stories of being not far below median at NYU and not getting any good offers. I'm pretty sure HLS gets big law down to the bottom 15%. such is the word on the street, anyway. so don't discount the employment prospects.
You would want to take xoxo information with a quite large grain of salt, though. You won't be getting Wachtell at the median but truth be told, neither would you from HLS or YLS. Every single graduate from NYU's class will get a BigLaw job if they want it. But it really doesn't matter, I have no intentions of being anywhere near the median anyway
