I have no desire to practice in upstate ny. With that said I like everything else about both schools. It would cost me three times as much to move (from cali) to Syracuse than it would to move to Boston and strangly enough the cost of living, for me, would be cheaper in Boston. my concern is 1- I was interested in some of the programs at Syracuse and 2- I am struggling to get my head around the ranking difference. I have posted similiar questions to this but would like any thoughts before I withdraw my app from Syracuse. Thanks.
