so i got into bu today and now i actually am faced with a choice between two of my top schools.  i doubt either will give me much money, if any, so it's a matter of quality of life and future opportunities.  i currently live in nyc, and know that i want to work here after law school.  but i have also lived in boston and would love to move back, even if only for three years.  haven't decided if i want to work at one of the big law firms or pursue a government position (clearkship, da office, doj, etc.), but i know i want either/or. 

i'm also waiting to hear from bc, which i think i have a good chance of getting into, and vanderbilt, which i'm much less optimistic about.  any advice?

Go to BU.  Fordham is only good for NYC biglaw.  BU will give you a little more flexibility.
