Columbia and NYU are about 30-40 minutes apart by metro so you can definitely visit them both. And you should -- they're similar schools rankings- and employment-wise but their neighborhoods are completely different, so it's worth getting a good sense of each one.
Thanks! I want to practice in CA so am currently trying to decide between Berk and NYU...trying to determine if NYU's higher #s and employment stats are worth me living on the other side of the country in a brand-new city. A bit of a scary prospect, but not a new one for TLSers/law school applicants. Who knows, I could love NYC.
I'm from LA, currently live in NYC and I think the two are pretty much dead even as cities when you consider stuff to do, cost, natural beauty, etc., but most people will come down HARD on which one they like more. Some people love the fast paced NYC lifestyle, the easy public transportation, the "canyons" of skyscrapers. Some, like me, prefer good weather, laid-back people, incredible mountains and beaches and the comfort of your car. There's no right answer and there's only one way to find out -- visit!
