Have the words Buffalo and temptation ever been written in the same sentence? Of course, other than: Ever since I moved to Buffalo, I have had the temptation to commit bodily harm.
I think that Buffalo would be a good option for you at this point. Though the economy, as with all of upstate New York, is hardly thriving, there are a lot of opportunities in government and the private sector there. You mentioned the DA's office, but there would also be an opportunity at the US Attorney's Office. I'd talk to some of the students from UB, see what their take is. It will ABSOLUTELY be a huge change for you, living-wise. I made the opposite transition, grew up in Buffalo and am going to law school in NYC, so if you'd like to learn about the area you can always PM me. I'm obviously biased, but I know that the opportunities are there if you stand out in a crowd. Also, if you're interested in any public interest, or become interested while going to school, it's a great city to start.
The schools in the Buffalo area are crap. You have to move out to the suburbs to get to a decent school district.
