BC($) v Fordham($)

Postby aryi3025 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 3:28 pm

Tuition @ BC = 94k + COL
Tuition @ Fordham = 106k + COL

Im moving from California so I would be happy in either market. Ideally i'd like to be doing firm work, mid-biglaw would be ideal..

what should i do?

Personally, I think both are too expensive.

I guess BC because tuition is a little less and COL in suburbs of Boston is cheaper than Manhattan.

But I would retake and reapply. At the very least negotiate for more $

Did you apply to BU for negotiating? Try and get Fordham/BC to negotiate, but at that rate BC is prolly better if you must go.

94K total for BC is really, really iffy. Add in cost of living and you'll be like 160K-170K in debt at graduation. Neither school is worth it at the costs you're talking about.

I'm not sure why being from California would make you ok with either market.

What do you mean by "mid-biglaw"? If you approached this process thinking "I want to make 100K+ after graduation and thus I'll just go to the highest ranked school I get into" which it appears that you have, then you might need to go back to square one here.

What are your numbers?
