BC is the best combination of job prospects and limiting debt. GW is way too expensive. Cardozo is a level below fordham/bc/GW. Fordham is too expensive unless you commute and I would not add a 1.5 hour commute on top of everything else you will be doing in law school. Plus living at home during grad school? Probably not the most fun.

You're thinking of commuting an hour each way to school? Do you realize how time consuming law school is to begin with? You'd be setting yourself up for a huge disadvantage.

BC places decently in NYC. BC is a notch better than Fordham/GW (and significantly better than Cardozo). BC at $126k is risky, but not soulcrushing if you end up doing something other than biglaw. BC lets you live on your own versus having to live at home with a 1.5 hour commute.

So I'd say easily go to BC. Your 3 relative options are BC, Fordham (at home), and Cardozo (at home) but I think BC is the frontrunner out of these.
