Fordham PT competitiveness

Postby texaspecial88 » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:58 pm

A lot of people have been telling me that the PT program at Fordham is a ton more competitive than the day program. Is this the case? Even it it were it wouldn't seem like it would matter because the class as a whole is graded on the same curve. Am I incorrect and the two are graded separately?

Every Class is graded on the same curve your 1L, FT or PT doesn't make a difference. The PT program is very competitive.

Edit [To give a better answer]: It is competitive in the sense that there are a lot of smart people working really hard to do well. When I say smart people, I mean that a lot of people here come from good schools, had high GPA's in UG, and many have had WE in the field.

No one is a jerk. Everyone is nice to one another as far as I can tell. When i say it is competitive, I mean that there aren't a lot of slackers. Mostly grinders who work hard, but nice grinders.

Can you apply to both the part-time and full-time program at Fordham?
