Why not? It's a great law school and locates in a great city.

1. Create a poll
2. Depends, what are your other options, what do you want to do after school, and how much would it cost over three years (Tuition + COL in NYC)?

Maybe. Need to know your other options, career goals, etc.

Oh now you want details?! Fine. If I had NYU as an option, and didn't have a better option, I'd drive up to the school with cash in hand. For me, as a NY native, I know it would place me in the just about the best possible position to secure a wide array of employment opportunities within the city. In addition, its a national school, really an international school, so there is no telling what type of doors would be opened by attending.

The caveat: If your goals are modest, then perhaps another school on a full scholarship, sans stipulations, would be better. I mean, if you want to work in the small personal injury firm your dad runs, you don't really need NYU. If however, you want options, you can't get much better than NYU.

+1 This. Depends on your personal financial situation too. 200k and then some is a lot of money, IMO. I vote no.

Your tar is some.... Spike Jonze or Michel Gondry video right?

Also, NYU is ranked number 6 in the US News and World Report rankings. That's all I'm really aware of.

You just keep complicating things. I'd take NYU because NYC is my home and debt isn't an issue, but if I were taking out loans and/or did not greatly prefer a NYC location, I would take Penn in a heartbeat.
