I was just curious why the people here chose CLS ultimately..
Please don't take my comments as confrontational, just as pure curiosity.
Not $ for me. But, Columbia had a much better program for what I wanted to do too and some interesting interdisciplinary opportunities. Also, because of my multidisciplinary interests, it helps to have a "name" that means more outside Law. Morningside Heights is more my style... Finally, I'm also a little bit on the older side, and Columbia skews a bit older than NYU so I thought I might feel more comfortable.
But, NYU was a great school, and if I was younger + more focused on areas where it's stronger, I wouldn't have hesitated to go there instead.
