is it worth quibbling over? Maybe it was 20%. Nobody really knows. That's a difference of a handful of students. And all we have to go on is the numbers the schools report, which are at best misleading and paint a rosier picture than is the true case. If it helps Cardozo fans sleep better at night then make it 21%.

No.

I go here.

Its a great school. I really love it. Everyone here is dope smart. The profs rock and its just a great place to be. However, Not great chances of being where ya gotta be to get a job that can pay it all back (it would be the same way at any other reputable law school--hey 90% of kids won't be top ten) . Fordham tuition + NYC living expenses are absurdly, and I mean ABSURDLY expensive. This would be way too stressful if you paid sticker and you're gunning for big law. I'm not exactly, but I wouldn't want to be in the position of having to pay that off and see big law as my only viable career path.

EDIT: Go to a school w/ $$$ or reasonable tuition where you can live comfortably (within close distance) to school and not be super frazzled about money. Worrying about money to the point of obsession is no way to live.

This is sad. I really am debt averse, but if I go to this school, I doubt my numbers will win me much $$$, right? I have a 164/3.82. Not good for schollys, right? Not to mention, Fordham seems notoriously bad with giving $$ in the first place.

Apply to Ohio State! I think they have overall great faculty and they'd defs hook you up with some money with those numbers. Plus Columbus rules as a city!

haha. quibbling? didn't think i was quibbling.

And all we have to go on is the numbers the schools report, which are at best misleading and paint a rosier picture than is the true case.
