Idk where the OP is from, but my gf went to boarding school out in New Hampshire and a few of the NYU/Columbia rejects from there ended up at Fordham(some for undergrad, some for law).. all are always bitching, but I get the feeling it is out of bitterness rather than anything wrong with the school

Calm down dude, some of us don't even have a list of employers for spring OCI.

I was waiting on Bankhead to hit back with a merciless response. I am now a little disappointed. I figured OS would vanquish the naysayers, but I didn't think she'd accomplish it as early as the very first page.

btw, my school used bkstore too, and the book list isn't 'hidden,' it's just kind of a pain the way the site's set up. If you really care to not buy your books at the store, pay for the 3 day shipping. It'll still be cheaper...

You know what OS!?

I'm sick and tired of you and your big huge ENFP-ness that you wave around to everyone to show how large it is. Stick it somewhere it can't be seen, ok?

Unwarranted. If you don't care to read my posts, don't. I'll make no criticism of yours.

I'm slow tonight. Now that you have put emotions into your post, however, shadowfrost and I forgive you.

Complaining that you have 8 firms going to spring OCI?

Guess how many private firms are coming to SLS for spring OCI: 3

I'm an 0L but I don't really think I'd care about most of the OP's complaints.. especially the stuff about the professors.

I'd pbe annoyed at the loans thing. As for books, yea thats annoying but it wouldnt be bad enough to be under a list of my school's "crimes"

I would have to say anything below T14 is not worth it in NYC for the price you will pay.

Granted, Fordham is a great school, but ITE the OP is correct while OS may be as well.

The business about the books pisses me off. Any time a school nickels and dimes its students, it gets on my nerves.

I was planning to apply to Fordham, but the people at the admissions office were so lazy and rude to me on multiple occasions that it ruined my opinion of the school.

Apparently firms think so too. Or they simply don't want to make the trip here. It really is out of the way for non SV based firms.

OperaAlto, are you a Fordham student?

Re: the price: I'll probably skip OCI even if I have amazing grades, so biglaw chances were not a deciding factor for me.

Hey, I know our adcomms. They are overworked, since they still don't have a new head of admissions, but they are really cool people. On one occasion, when I went in there to drop off a couple of forms, they had cake, and they gave me some.

FYI it is in NYC and people there are generally rude. Might have something to do with cramming millions of people into overpriced boxes and cramped subway cars in brutal weather...

Come on now, you lived here. It's not rudeness. It's protective armor. Once New Yorkers are introduced to someone in a social setting, they are invariably friendly and cool, at least in the same proportion that people are friendly and cool in other cities.
