So many things are going to factor into your decision that are based on your personal situation and circumstances. I can only speak for my experience and decision to attend Albany based on the fact that the school really impressed me on many levels. I have even been in contact with the Dean and he is very approachable. You could e-mail him and ask him to provide you with any other information regarding your goal of focussing on human rights law. I am sure he would be able to provide important insight to the benefits of Albany Law.
His email is on the www.als.edu
website under the faculty link.
Good luck with your decision and if you pick Albany feel free to post on the Albany class of 2008 thread or PM me.
