Duke vs. Fordham

Postby wlags » Thu Mar 28, 2013 12:26 am

Hey guys was wondering if anyone had an opinion on my decision. I have 22.5k at Duke and 30k at Fordham. Want to eventually practice in New York and am trying to decide. I guess the question is Duke worth the extra distance and cost. Any thoughts? Ty

Are those amounts per year?

Regardless, Duke is the clear winner here.

assuming those are yearly amounts, the difference will be largely mitigated by the high cost of living in NYC (and more so if they are total amounts-although then i would question whether either one is worthwhile). duke will give you a 2-3x greater chance of a good job in NYC so this isn't even close.

In Durham you can get an apartment for less than $500 a month.

Thanks everybody. Yes these are per year scholarships. I'm also on the held list at NYU, Penn, and CLS. Not sure what the odds are of getting in at this point, but I assume that if I do it'll be at sticker..

Not even a question. Duke.
