Per year or total?

Is the Fordham 30k/yr. or 10k/yr.?

Even if Fordham is giving you 90k in money, you would still have well over 160k in debt, which is too much for Fordham.

Also, what are your numbers? Cardozo at fullride is still something like 60-70k in debt, for not good job prospects.

Would recommend retaking.

30k/yr, 170/3.83 and waitlisted at a number of top 10s, not retaking. cost of living almost definitely taken care of by parents but would be slightly lower than normal because for personal reasons not living in manhattan

There's something going on that you're not telling us. Did you apply late?

ETA: even if you're not going to retake, you need to try your hand again next application cycle.

Who did you kill? No really, how are you underperforming your numbers? How late did you apply? I would never go to one of these schools if those were my numbers. You better write one bomb LOCI to Cornell if your goal is NY and your focus are only schools in the area. That or get Fordham to give you a full ride.
