Fordham V. George Washington, both at 1/2 off

Postby threshold89 » Wed May 04, 2011 5:37 pm

Thoughts? I'm from Jersey and Fordham is close to home, however, does GW's prestige nationally trump Fordham's regionally? BigLaw in NYC is the goal: what else is new..

Thanks

They are peer schools by most metrics...don't let the 10 spots in rankings fool you. If you want NYC BigLaw but can't get T14, Fordham with scholly is the answer. Fordham sent a slightly higher amount of grads into BigLaw this year: http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... 2483173162

Fordham does better in NYC. Since you want NYC, take Fordham hands down.
