GW Law appeals to me in a number of ways--strong IP program, strong IR program, excellent location, friendly and helpful admissions committee, close to Supreme Court/White House/State Department etc..., great employment statistics in NLJ250 and it has portability, meaning I could get a job in a number of markets as opposed to Fordham's NYC exclusivity.
It's hilarious that you're still harping on the rankings aspect of it. Actually, GW jumping up in rankings and Fordham dropping in rankings did play a part in my decision because it only reinforced what I already believed, that GW>Fordham.
You are one angry person, aren't you, hehe?
This directly contradicts your first post. You said you were leaning towards Fordham but you changed your mind when the new rankings came out. You said taking Fordham over GWU would be "madness" considering how GW is rising and Fordham is falling. We called you out on how stupid this is, and you now are backtracking and coming up with other reasons for why you're making this choice.
FWIW, all the reasons you just listed are great reasons for choosing GW over Fordham. I would probably pick GW over Fordham as well, since I have no desire for NYC.
And actually no, I'm a very friendly and laid back person. I just can't stand people like you.
