Cardozo vs Fordham

Postby lurkerspouse » Thu May 12, 2016 5:32 pm

Cardozo (full scholarship) vs Fordham (48K/year).
Interested in IP. (WL at Penn, NYU, Columbia)

What are the meaningful differences between the two schools, and is it worth the price differential?
Thanks for any wisdom

No, the background is in entertainment/media IP.

I know you probably don't want to hear this, but can you sit out and reapply with better stats? I would wait until you get some money from a better school for these goals.

Most likely not going to try the better stats route -- 10+ years out of undergrad as it is. 171/3.5

Did you apply to all of the T14?

No, just NYC/Amtrak area. H & Y for a reach, (both dings).

I'm guessing you MUST stay in the tristate area then?

Isn't $48k a year almost a full ride at Fordham? I'd do that over Cardozo.

Yeah, someone with your stats shouldn't be going to Cardozo imo. If you really want to then go to Fordham, or ride the waitlists out.
