Ugh, this is longer than I intended it to be. Anyway...

BU's got a great IP concentration program. Also, Boston is an amazing city. I live here now and love the hell out of it. All of my friends from college live in NYC (literally every one of them, I'm the only one who moved here as opposed to staying by school or moving to NYC), and I still see them almost every 2 or 3 weeks.
You're getting a lot of money from BU, and I hate to almost put down Fordham on the thread where we all are proclaiming our undying love of the school - but it frankly, to me at least, sounds like a better choice to go to BU, given the money, and the job prospects, and a chance to try out a new (and very different) city.
Further - if you have a SO who lives in NYC and won't be making the move, my old roomate was able to keep his relationship going throughout law school while she lived in NYC and he lived in Boston (he went to BC law). Stressful, I had to listen to a fair amount of their fighting his 1L, but possible.
But, at the end of the day, you gotta do what makes you happy, and if living in NYC is that, then I say go for it. 1L is gonna be stressful as hell, and you wanna be around people and places that will take your mind off of how badly you want to quit and join the circus, and if you think that NYC is the best place to do that, then you gotta take that into account too.
So at the end of the day, I have no point, I just like to ramble.
