Not just the legal world, but the whole world. You never know what might happen. Have you visited the Harvard Law campus and met some of the folks there? Go to Fordham and tell them you chose it over Harvard. Your fellow students will laugh at you because they'll think you're joking.
My guess is they would think he is lying.
You won't be able to go straight to an in-house gig - they don't want to train baby lawyers. Most will require a few years of attorney experience.
Your best bet is to work your way up through BigLaw, albeit at a firm with a good entertainment law practice. Your chances of getting the kind of job that will lead you on the right path are better with an HLS degree. You can absolutely get it at Fordham, but only if you do well there. Are you a gambling man? You're basically taking the guaranteed big bucks return / career you would get from HLS and betting it on the possibility of saving a fraction of that money by going with the scholarship and praying to be the best there.
The fact that one is in NYC is absolutely irrelevant. You will interview wherever you want for summers, and spend them where you choose. Unless you're planning to work during law school, generally a bad idea for FT anyway, the location of each school doesn't affect career prospects. If you get an interview, they will likely fly you out anyway. Will it be more *fun* to be in NYC than Cambridge? Insofar as law students actually have free time, absolutely. But that's only a small part of the equation.
I agree with the previous posters that you may well change your mind as to what area; Harvard will keep more of your options open. Plus - free coffee! Go for the free coffee. And in 20 minutes, free chair massage. Harvard. Definitely Harvard.
