You interested in public interest?Yes, and actually, CUNY was my initial #1 pick last fall when I decided to go to law school. I visited the campus for an open house in December and was impressed (the professor who gave the sample class was SUPERB, and the Dean -- who I met earlier at the law forum in Boston -- is very cool.)A bit to my surprise, however, I have decided not to go to CUNY. The primary consideration for me in declining CUNY is $$. I happened to get a few nice scholarships at some other schools, and thus, it became harder to justify spending an extra 40K to go to CUNY. I am currently planning, therefore, on going to Temple in Philly.That all said, I don't think ANY school in this country has anything resembling the same commitment to public interest that CUNY does. It simply blows all other schools out of the water in terms of incorporating public interest into the core fabric of its mission. So, yea, I would definitely recommend it over NYLS given your interests.
