FORDHAM vs. CARDOZO

Postby rmw308 » Sun Apr 17, 2011 9:28 pm

I Know that this has discussed before and is a common debate, but what would you all take....

Cardozo + 15 grand/year with minimal stipulations (need to finish top 80% to maintain scholarship)

or

Fordham?

Please let me know your thoughts.

I wouldn't pay sticker for Fordham, and I wouldn't take out that kind of debt for Cardozo. I'd retake.

is that answer necessary? ^

just pick the less of the two evils.

OP, i'd take Fordham at sticker. Especially if you want biglaw.

If you absolutely must choose between these two schools, I'd go to Fordham. But I'm not really sure I'd want to get $200K of debt from even some T14 schools.

Both these options are awful, but I guess Fordham is the lesser of evils.

With your GPA, all you would need to do is bounce up your LSAT score to 169-170 and have a really good shot at GULC along with a great ED chance at UVA.

To answer your question, Fordham, and pray like hell IBR still exists.
