GW Law vs Fordham Law

Postby GermX » Thu Mar 25, 2010 2:15 pm

Want to study Corporate/Business law, possibly International, point is, which school is worth going to more- these are my two acceptances so far, still waiting on 5 others (including USC, BU and Cornell), but if these are all I had to choose from, which would I go to? I do want to work in New York eventually, does GW law place well there?

Not yet, still waiting to see, but I also applied for FAFSA aid etc...

So so far, just consider it sticker price for both. On a side note, parents footing th ebill so debt is not a concern.

Fordham for NYC; GW for DC... it really is that simple, unless there is money involved.

Is it really that simple? I just keep getting the idea that GW seems to be a far more established/respectable law school, am I wrong here? What are GW Law's employment statistics in NYC?

I'll be attending GW in the fall, but I'd have to agree, they're basically the same school in different areas. Although I'd say GW places fairly decently in NYC, while Fordham probably doesn't place too well in DC. So if you're looking for maybe slightly more portability than GW, but really they're identical schools.

GW is the better school overall UNLESS you specifically and only want, no matter what, to live and work in NYC.
