It has a B- curve and if you are not in the top 1/4 of the class, your chance of Biglaw falls precipitously. Does it give you a better shot than a SJU or Brooklyn? Yes if you're confident that you can be in the top 1/4 of the class or above. If not, your employment prospects are just as good as SJU, Brooklyn, Cardozo, etc. Take the money, work smart and hard, and be thankful you won't be 200k+ in debt from tuition and NYC cost of living.
This is not true. 1L curve is B to B+. 50% gets B+ or higher.KInDA wrote:Hi,
I am currently dealing with a very similar choice. So I need advice. I have just a few days to decide.
I saw the poll and 23 ppl voted fordham in this threa,but when I read it,it sounded like the worst idea ever.
I have been silently reading tls for months,and never really read anything that negative about fordham before.
Anyone willing to counterbalance this thread and give some more input?
It would be great!
What do you want to hear?
This is so true. If you want to hear cheer about a school then go to the admissions office. If you want to know what looking for a job is like check the employment section of this board of jdunderground. Or just go to graduation and ask people where they are working. You are making an enormous investment. You should do the due diligence.
