TCR, much better school than Cornell, negligible difference in tuition.
Cornell isn't a much better school than Michigan, possibly not even better at all. And definitely not a better school for NYC big law.
Please clarify (Cornell <=> Michigan?). Very interested.
From what I heard and read (various faculty quality rankings by Leiter), the quality of education at Cornell is comparable to that at Michigan, and Cornell may actually be stronger in the corporate/business law area. It definitely has a greater focus on that area (During the Michigan ASW, most of the things I heard were PI related) But Michigan is a solid top-10 and has a (numerically) better student body, which may help attract higher-caliber employers but may also work against my class rank.
Sorry I wrote really poorly. But Cornell places at least as well in NYC as Michigan does, and it probably does better. As for faculty or quality of education I don't know nor care.
I'd be shocked if there are any NYC firms who go to Michigan and not Cornell.
