Fordham v. Cardozo v. Brooklyn v. St. Johns

Postby phillyphanatic123 » Sun Mar 21, 2010 10:09 pm

Fordham - no money offer yet, but I was just accepted (Night time program - I applied only to that program)
Cardozo - 32K
Brooklyn - 29K (34K tuition) (Night time program - I applied only to that program)
St. Johns - Full (Night time program - I applied only to that program)

165, 3.95 (top 50 private)

I'm going to ask for more money from Brooklyn and Cardozo, b/c i should have received full, I believe, with my numbers.

Is Brooklyn significantly better than St. Johns? Would anybody take Fordham at sticker?

Thanks in advance!!!

oh yes - and I want to use a law degree towards my career in finance. So i'm not sure if there are any differences in the schools regarding this matter.
Thanks!

I'm facing a similar issue (Fordham vs. BLS). There's no right answer here. I'm leaning toward Fordham PT at sticker, because I will graduate debt free as my income exceeds tuition+COL. Walking away from Brooklyn's money offer is very difficult though.

Figure out how debt averse you are. Financial security is paramount to low stress levels and comfort. If you have a high-paying job that will allow you to live comfortably while paying sticker, it's a better job option despite debt aversion. If not, and the prospect of a 2k/month loan repayment bill will cause you sleepless nights, Brooklyn becomes a really nice looking option.
