OP - You're taking a lot of shit here and you may not understand why, but here's some info to hopefully help clear things up -
1. Law schools, outside of the T14 (and even to some extent within the T14), place regionally. If you want to work in [insert random state here], then a degree from [insert law school on the other side of the country from aforementioned state here] won't be of much use to you. There is a lot of statistical evidence backing this up.
2. Correct me if i'm wrong, but based on your options, it seems fair to say that you want to work in New York.
3. New York, from what I can gather, is one of the legal job markets most hardly hit by the recession, meaning that jobs are even more scarce in New York than in other parts of the country.
4. The NYC Metro area is home to Columbia, NYU, Fordham, Cardozo, Brooklyn, St. John's, CUNY Law, NYLS, Hofstra, Rutgers-Newark, Seton Hall, Touro, and Pace. That's a lot of law schools and a lot of law graduates in a very small space, all of whom you will be competing with for jobs.
5. NYC is also the targeted market for many graduates from many schools not in NYC. So in addition to competing with schools in your region, you will also be competing for jobs with students from schools like Yale, Stanford, Harvard, UChicago, Penn, UVA, Berkeley...........Cornell, Georgetown, Texas.............(etc. etc. etc., I hope you see where I'm going with this).
With all of that in mind, I hope you realize that getting some of the most desirable jobs in NYC from either school will be difficult. Getting any desirable job in NYC will be difficult. Getting any job in NYC will be less than a 50-50 shot, and I hope the above helps explain why.
That said, it seems like your COA at either wouldn't be absolutely through the roof, but that doesn't make them ideal options. If you absolutely must, I'd say Hofstra over NYLS. Your best option, however, by far, would be to retake the LSAT, and go to a better school for less money.
