Assuming the costs are equal or Brooklyn is cheaper, I think this is a much tougher choice than the other commenters. If you want to work in NYC or you are interested in public service, Brooklyn may be a better choice. Also, these two schools and their cities (er, locations) have very different feels. You should really try to visit if you can. I know people say that you should base your choice primarily on ranking and job prospects, but your job prospects at these schools will depend much more on how you do than on the schools' names, alumni networks, and career services people. You will do better (and more) in a place where you feel comfortable and happy.
Thanks for the responses.I live just outside NYC right now, I love the city and would enjoy living there. Also I am interested in Public Interest (and DA work in NYC, which I hear recruits from Brooklyn often)I have applied to the T-14, and still hope to get into GULC, Cornell or higher, but have not heard back from them.As it stands I would have to take $$ and rank at W & L, but if Brooklyn comes back with a boatload of cash I might just see the light.
