Hi guys, I posted this question on the Acceptances thread but it seems more people read this?
My goal is to practice in NYC. Doesn't HAVE to be Biglaw, just NYC. I am from NY originally and I love it here.
I was accepted to SUNY Buffalo and due to the low cost for in-state tuition (and the low cost of living in Buffalo) I am strongly considering it. However, I was also accepted to Temple and due to the scholarship money they gave me the cost is now essentially equal. There are pluses and minuses to each, but I am wondering what the best option is if I want to work in NYC. Temple is ranked slightly higher, and if I ultimately had to work in either Philadelphia or Buffalo I would choose Philly. Would my odds of getting a job in NYC be better at Philly because it's closer and a little higher ranking? Or better from Buffalo because it is still a New York school?
Strange question, I know.
