Need some advice on my cycle

Postby lauren24 » Mon Mar 01, 2010 1:50 pm

I am pretty much done with my cycle :) Now it's decision time. The 2 schools I am in between are Rutgers Newark and Fordham. I got accepted and got some money from both.

For Rutgers I got $30000 and I would attend full time while living at home. I live about 20 mins away so it's not a bad commute and the tuition is really cheap :)

For Fordham I got $20000 but I applied for the part time program so it would be 4 years (unless I transfer to full time after the first year). Also I would need to find an apartment closer to where the school is at because I live too far from Fordham to make the commute.

I am really undecided on which school to pick and I have to send my admission confirmation soon :( So if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

Fordham. Mind PMing me your stats? I also applied to Fordham PT and haven't heard back yet. Good luck with your decision!

Hmm how hard is it to maintain a 3.0 gpa in law school? The Rutgers scholarship depends on a 3.0 cumulative gpa, which I imagined would need to be my minimal gpa anyways in this economy.

The difference in tuition between Rutgers and Fordham is pretty big too :( So that makes this decision even harder.
