For the love of God, go to Berkeley. Even if you decide halfway through 1L that you want to work in New York, it is the right call. I had offers are three V10 firms in New York after placing in top 25% at Berkeley my 1L year. I had never lived or worked in New york prior to OCI.


You always have to remember that a lot of lurkers vote straight down US news on all of these polls. That's how you get ppl voting sticker cause its number #2 or #4 or whatever over #7 or #9. You have to discount the lurker vote as a margin of error.
