So the question is whether Fordham is worth $45k more than Cardozo?

I'm inclined to say yes, but what kind of work do you want to do?

Can you negotiate for any more money at Fordham or a living stipend at Cardozo?

Not sure about Cardozo, but I doubt it for Fordham. Fordham is incredibly stingy and I'm surprised OP even got 90k. That said, it is worth at least asking

Fordham hands down. I think it gives you much better options and for an extra 45k you'd be silly to turn that down.

Fordham for that little is a hell of a deal, they got my vote.

I have friends and both schools and the friends at Fordham don't regret their decision while my friend at Cardozo is struggling for his 1L summer placement and he's on a full scholly. Definitely Fordham for the extra money.

Full Disclosure: I will probably be attending Fordham at a similar cost as you.
