IMO NYL is better. According to the purported USNews rankings, NYL is ranked 100th (tier 2) while Hofstra isn't there. NYL is also in a great location in Manhattan. Im not sure where Hofstra is (Long Island?) but that may be somthing to consider. NYL was my safety school mainly becase of the location (I got in to St. John's with much more $ than NYL offered me so I sent a thanks but no thanks letter to NYL). Anyways, Ive gotten a generally good impression from NYL overall through communique with the school and a short visit over the summer. You should definatley check both out if youre in the NY area or going to visit. BTW scolomon, may I ask you your #'s? just curious is all... Career prospesct, quite frankly are limited from both schools but I think NYL again comes out on top (if only marginally). And again, imo, neither is ever going to be a national school, both will, for the most part limit you to the NY area. Just some thoughts and gl.
