Brooklyn or Fordham???

Postby SaraT » Tue May 18, 2010 10:49 am

Hey guys, I would love some feedback on my situation. BLS is giving me a full ride and Fordham is giving me 22,000. Which would be best if I want to do biglaw in NYC? Any advice is appreciated :)

Same dilemma except Fordham offered me zilch. I chose Fordham.

40% requirement seems doable, but if you don't make it you're boned.

And if you do make it, you might end up in the top 35% with a free law degree but no biglaw options.

Fordham.

BigLaw? Fordham hands down. Keep in mind it will still be very difficult to obtain from there though, just a lot easier than BLS. I got St Johns close to full ride and no money from Fordham. I am retaking/reapplying next year to see if I can get any money from Fordham.

Since you want biglaw, your choice is clearly Fordham. That scholarship they gave you is icing.
