From what I've heard, all the Tier 2 schools are lumped together. It all depends on your class rank.

St. John's has a better rep.

It is ex governor of New York. 

Yes he did go to SJ.

At least St. John's is consistently in Tier 2 and can actually claim to be in NYC (barely).  Hofstra just moved into T2 in 2002 or later, and is in danger of sliding back into T3.

Experts are actually predicting it will go high up because of their new dean who has such an amazing reputation.

I hope so.  The current students I've spoken to don't seem to like him very much and worry about his fundraising capability.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see.  I think St. John's will still be the better choice for the next 5 years at least.
