NYU 3L going to V50 here. I don't think that's true. I interviewed in many secondary markets, from Cleveland to Houston, and everyone received the degree well. NYU has enough people in these cities that it's a well-known commodity.
This is consistent with my personal experience and anecdotes I've heard. I know people who got job offers all over the country without being particularly noteworthy candidates. Who knows which of the two schools is "better" outside NYC, which is pretty much impossible to quantify, but the NYU name doesn't seem to experience a real dip in desirability in other markets the way some might assume.
