Eh, I don't buy the "GULC is significantly worse than Cornell" argument considering much higher PI/gov placement.

"In all seriousness it is extremely hard to get a big firm job from a second tier school in NY unless you're in the top 10%. A second tier school outside of NYC is honestly next to impossible."

As for getting in from a law school... "Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, NYU, Chicago, Penn, UVA, Michigan, Cornell Fordham (which I would argue is tier 1), Brooklyn, Cardozo, St. Johns, Hofstra" - in that order.

I have seen some people asking about which NY school to go to - so there's some info straight from someone who hires.
