Fordham


I realize Fordham places better than probably all of these schools in NYC, but I'm looking in other cities as well. I just want to see which of these schools listed does best.

He said USNWR 20s. Fordham is ranked 34. So all your answers are wrong. Stop trolling for Fordham and answer his fucking question, lol.

I would say BU and GW.

What is the best school in USNWR 20s for NYC BigLaw?


That's the question. And Fordham is NOT in the USNWR 20s. Like I said, too many pro-Fordham trollers on this forum. It's kind of creepy. What exactly has Fordham done for you that you would be such die hard fans, lol?

BC should also be in there.

And all of them do substantially worse in NYC biglaw than Fordham.

OP-you're going to get a ton of Fordham replies (and they're definitely warranted). I had the same concerns as you, take a look at the thread I started a while ago. There's a lot of good info in it.

I'd take every single one of those schools, except GW, over Fordham but Fordham is still the right answer.

I was surprised when I saw you didn't create this thread, GermX. Seems like a question you would ask. :P

These people aren't trolling for Fordham - they're pointing out that all of the USNWR 20s schools are outperformed by Fordham in NYC, so it would be unwise to go to one of those schools rather than Fordham if you are sure you want NYC.

BU is probably the best behind Fordham.

Yes but the idea is that the QUESTION SPECIFICALLY asks about the USNWR 20s. Which Fordham isn't a part of. He is NOT asking "Which is the best NYC school past the t-14?". He's asking, "among this list of schools, which is the best"?

It's that simple. Answer his fucking question and stop trolling for Fordturkey.

Is the internet that serious of a place for you that you fight for other OP's?

Except while the answer given may be wrong, the question was even more wrong.

The question is stupid because you shouldn't make your decision based on an arbitrary cutoff of some magazines rankings of schools. If you want NYC Biglaw and you can't get T14, go to Fordham. Also, the difference between Fordham and the 28 ranking is one point in the composite score. In conclusion:

Isn't WUSTL 19? Why is it an option in the poll? I was going to choose it, but realized it's ranked too high.
