Postby lovenyc123 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 12:19 am

though only ranked in the 30's, is fordham a great for someone who wants to do corporate law @ a nlj 250 firm or a good mid-sized firm in nyc? if it can get me a job of at least 90k, i say great.

considering fierce comp. in nyc, outside of t14 & maybe fordham, is yu or bklyn worth it?

Fordham has a great alumni base and has a strong reputation in NYC. It is probably the best non-T14 for NYC (and some would argue it is better than some of the lower T-14 for NYC). Don't go off of what US News says; Fordham is a GREAT option if you want NYC. Dozo and Brooklyn, not so much.

Fordham might make sense at sticker. This does not apply to Brooklyn or Cardozo.

If you're top 1/3, yes it can.


Top 15-10% at Cardozo, less for Brooklyn if its even possible at all. Maybe 7%.
