Emory or Fordham?

Postby pelmen74 » Fri Feb 19, 2010 2:29 pm

I have been accepted to both of these institutions. Can anyone give me some advice over which school they would recommend, and why?

+1. This is pretty much the most important question in the equation.

+1. You want NYC? Pick Fordham. You want Atlanta? Pick Emory. I would argue that Emory gives you a better shot at leaving Atlanta than Fordham does at leaving NYC, but that could completely be b/c Fordham students don't try to leave NYC.

Add Boston to the list and I am in the exact same position. I'm waiting for Emory to give out scholarship info, hoping that will help make the decision easier.

Have you visited Atlanta?

I havnt been to Atlanta, but I guess I would not mind the South. At least it will be a change of scenery from upstate New York.
