Lower Ranking.....but in NYC

Postby iaiava » Sun May 27, 2012 12:03 am

I'm 90% sure that I'm going to be part of Fordham's class of 2015. I have been accepted into much higher ranked schools but I think that the benefit of studying in NYC will give me a leg up on the competition when applying for summer associateships. Is it worth studying at a lower ranked school but that is in NYC?

Fordham
WUSL
ND

All about 20k

Fordham at 29th is not lower ranked than WUSTL or ND at 23/22 respectively, they are all lumped in the "T1" category. With a goal of NYC, Fordham is squarely above either of them. You are taking on a lot of debt for Fordham, probably too much, but if those are your 3 options, you are set on attending this year, and NYC is your goal it's a no brainer.

Yes out of these options Fordham is the best call for NYC. 20k a year at Fordham isn't a bad deal but it's still a ton of debt.
