Fordham or wait

Postby Credit » Mon Apr 12, 2010 7:44 pm

Help me.

My cycle as of today:

Fordham: in, no $
Notre Dame: WL
Cornell: reject
Gtown: reject
Michigan: WL
UCLA: pending but wouldnt go anyways, had a fee waiver

Fordham's deposit is due this week and I'm at a loss as to what to do. My goal is NYC biglaw or a gov job, in particular DOJ, and thus I was really aiming for t14. My numbers are low (3.3/169). I was hoping to slip into Cornell but that didn't happen. I applied early January, which may have impacted my cycle.

I'm wondering whether I should wait until next cycle and hope that applying earlier helps me out (I could also apply to more schools to see if i cant get money anywhere) or just suck it up and go to fordham in the fall.

What would you guys do?

Fordham's a great school. I wouldn't hold out hope for the DOJ job, but any year but 2009 OCI Fordham does very well with NYC law firms. Go, OCI 2011 will be much better, the way things are looking.
