I got accepted to both schools NYLS as well as CUNY law. When I first went to the open house in NYLS i found that people were not very friendly, and it seemed like the majority of the students giving the tour were not happy with the school. My lsat score its in the low 150's and they still accepted me about 2 weeks later after receiving my application.
Now as for CUNY, like the poster above mentioned, CUNY is a great school for those who are not interested in Big law firm jobs. It is more for public interest, and moderate law firm job mainly in NYC. It is a public school so the tuition is very affordable ( 8,500) which is great. I just recently went on a personal tour in the school where you are allowed to sit on a class, and get a tour on a one to one by a current student. Let me tell you that I was very impressed. Even though the school is not really small, all the students know each other, and they all help each other out. It is not a competitive school, where you are on your own. They really do help each other out. The law school community has a great bond. The school is spacious as well and very nice. Overall, I was very impressed with the school and definitely recommended instead of NYLS where I did not feel very comfortable.
