I'm nearly certain I want to live/work in nyc eventually which is why I'm not paying too much mind to emory and their surprisingly large offer. Fordham at half does scare me, though. Really it comes down to what the bigger gamble is (for me and OP, or anyone else who's decision is fordham v cardozo/brooklyn): go with more money but lower chance of landing big job, or less money but improved chances of big job.
that's a really awful false dilemma you've put yourself into. you have several options preferable to both.
what are the options? Emory offered more than half/year, as did BC, but I'd like to stay in new york. Assuming I don't get into either nyu or columbia (and if I did, would likely be paying sticker), what are the other options? I really don't think either one is a "bad" decision. I realize some of you are the notoriously pompous jackasses that condescend to all who aren't going to a t-14, but this is the reality for most (including OP, it seems).
