I had to spend weeks of anguish just deciding which NYC school I preferred, and they seem so similar in many respects. Then again, I suppose Chicago is more Columbia's peer than NYU is in terms of prestige.
For those not set on NYC biglaw, I don't think NYU offers any substantive advantage over Michigan/UVA/Penn. Not sure where Helm wants to practice, but his ranking of Chicago and the NYU/Mich/Penn is pretty on par with mine (although I have Mich over Penn/NYU) and I'm pretty set on not going to NYC.
I'm not sure it offers any substantive disadvantage, though, other than less prestige. What do you want to be when you grow up, Helm?
I want to get into international sports law.
