Still waiting on Columbia, Georgetown, U Penn, and Fordham...

If you want biglaw in NYC and you don't get Cornell or better then retake/reapply.

St. Johns.
Hofstra is allright, but St. Johns would be a better choice for you. Cardozo is a good school, but i wouldnt turn down a full ride for it. Emory and Washington and Lee are out- as they wont get you to NY ( emory will land you in atlanta, W and L Washington DC and surrounding areas). Check out Hofstra and St. JOhns and go to the one you feel most comfortable at. Keep in mind, that if you arent in the tip top of your class, biglaw is out.

None of these schools put you in ANY position for biglaw in NYC. NYC firms simply do not look to these schools to fill their ranks. Better chance being struck by lighting.

Emory. After Atlanta (of course), the second-biggest place where graduates go after graduation is NYC.

This is so ridiculous. Sure, none of these give you a GOOD chance at NYC biglaw. But there are quite a few graduates of these schools in NYC firms (just do a search on any of their websites). Your posts are all pretty ridiculous, wish the mods would look into this.
