If Oliver Wendell Holmes was alive today and reading the U.S. News & World Report law school rankings, he would put down his magazine angrily when he got to the sectiing with NYLS in it and proclaim: "Three tiers of imbeciles is enough."

1) ALS is referring to NYU law, not NY law. Two schools, similar name.

2) NYU Law students LIKE their school, whereas I have yet to meet a CLS student who does. One alum, who went on to become very successful regardless, refers to CLS as "the worst 3 years of my life."

3) NYU Law has better career services for private practice, whereas CLS is still riding its pretentious name to keep a leg up on academic placements and clerkships. So depending on what you want to do, and how important it is to you that you enjoy three years of your life, there is a definite trade-off.
