Confused.... Accepted into Hofstra, NY Law and Pace ... which one?

I'm looking for some input from anyone familiar with these schools in New York (Hofstra, Pace, NY Law). I need to make a decision very soon and I am so confused.  I think Hofstra is ranked higher but NY Law seems to have a much higher average median salary after school.  Help please.

If you have your hopes up for Big Law, I think more firms interview at NYLS than the other two.  But you should go through NALP Directory to check that.

Hofstra, obviously

Hofstra = tier 2
NYLS = tier 3
Pace = tier 4

Congratulations on your ability to read off a list and determine the order.  Very insightful advice.

Think like this: At which of those schools is my best shot to make top 10-15%? Bearing in mind that failing to do so at a T2 or T3 will leave you seriously hurting for a job. Also, don't even think about Pace. It's by all accounts a terrible school. NYLS probably has the better faculty of the three, but the competition there is stronger, bolstered by all the kids who are there on scholarship in lieu of Brooklyn or Cardozo. So not to be completely inconclusive - but as far brainscratchers go, this is a dilly of a pickle.

Sorry Prong, I should have specified. I meant a "good" job - one that pays money.
