I'm from Syracuse. The law school has a decent reputation around here, but mostly because noone knows much about anything. It is pretty cheap to live in Syracuse (~550/month for a 2-bedroom), but it also sucks for the most part.
There are not a lot of options as far as eating/hanging out goes here, and the average person is fairly uneducated and conservative. The undergraduate student body (NOT necessarily the law school) is predominantly comprised of frat-style, DMB fan-guys, and tramp-stamped brainless girls. However, I do know a few stand-up Syracuse alumni.
I'm not sure where you're from, but moving to Syracuse might be a downgrade in your quality of life.
