I don't really know of the prestige of fordham compared to a t14, but I would bet it has all of the t14 beat in the level of douchebag per capita.

That said: Family member on Vault 100 firm's hiring committee said I should go to Fordham instead of Georgetown if I wanted to go back to NY. So there's that.

At equal cost?


In this case with $20k a year at Fordham, but he implied even at equal cost it would be a tossup.

Are you seriously contending that the median Fordham student is douchier than the median Dook student?

Well you got Cornell so no need to go to Fordham if you want NYC.
