GW vs Fordham for IP law wanting to work in NYC

Postby imacdane » Wed May 09, 2012 8:45 pm

Obviously GW is ranked higher for IP law, but if I'd like to live and work in NYC after graduation, would Fordham be a better option? Also, would going part-time rather than full-time affect the answer to this question?

Yes, Fordham is a better option than GW if you want to live and work in NY.
They are peer schools and are both very regional, so you're most likely going to end up staying in the same city.

What about GULC? Would that carry more weight in NYC than Fordham?
