Id take fordham. You would be giving up too much in terms of biglaw placement at seton hall or crooklyn...

I see that you have a 3.7 and 167. I think your best option is to retake. WOrst case, pay your deposit for fordham and retake. 1 more pt could mean cornell/ Vandy/usc/ucla which would give you better placement opportunities.

I'd recommend working on your punctuation. I'm confused, as well, after reading that "sentence."

of the three, it's by far the best choice, but you're still taking on a lot of debt for not so good odds at nyc biglaw. fortunately for you, you're not taking out COL loans, so going there isn't a totally horrible decision.

Try to get a 4th retake. My friend got one by asking a school to send a letter to the LSAC authorizing you to retake for a 4th time.
No. Cornell is a lot better in terms of placement as compared to Fordham.

LSAC doesn't let you do that any more.

I got Cornell with similar numbers in a more competitive year (aka the "Lady Gaga" year).

EA doesn't really matter. And I got rejected from UCLA before getting into Cornell. Not saying it'll happen, but there's a chance.

That depends on what you want to do in life.
If you want biglaw, go to Fordham (and hope for the best).
Everything else, go to Brooklyn and come out with a debt you can manage off a $50k salary

It depends on what you want, what are the things you are considering doing during/after law school. It's not all about money. Are certain locations better to you, are you trying to get into a certain field, any other considerations. You have to consider the whole range of possibilities.

Then Fordham sounds like a good choice and since you're not fighting with any reasons for IUB I assume you also think so. Go with your gut.
