You're really asking a question of whether you should pay an extra $70k for a roughly equal chance at your optimal outcome (both place at about 65% in biglaw/a3). Unless you had really compelling reasons for wanting to study in NYC or specifically at NYU, it's Cornell all the way here.

A good number of people at NYU self-select into PI. You can't simply look at the fed clerk/biglaw numbers here and say theyre equal. NYU will do at least a little better for you. Whether thats worth 70K im not qualified to say

Not sure what the COA is for each, but I imagine Ithaca is cheaper than the Village, to boot. While NYU is the safer option for getting a job, Cornell places just fine, and the presumably ~60+k difference makes me choose Ithaca.

(That's not rhetorical, by the way.)
that and do you want to deal with the Cornel workload. They have either 4 or 5 graded classes (4 substantive) which is a bitch.
NYU has 3 grades and pass fail lawyering which frees up a lot of your time
