Have read some mixed reviews on this site, and was curious what was everyone's opinion on this school and the job prospects

Job prospects are very solid compared to schools ranked near it. The degree won't be portable, so you have to be comfortable staying in NYC.

Very much a NY school but it places much better in BigLaw than a number of schools ranked higher than it simply because of the NY connection. That said, if you top out at your class you can still go anywhere.

The consensus here seems to be it's a good REGIONAL school in NY and you have a shot at biglaw if you graduate in the top 1/4 of your class, if that's what you're interested in. Outside of that market it depends a lot more on being at the top of your class which is true for pretty much any top regional school.

Would the employment prospects warrant going there with a ten thousand scholly over a 30k offer from dozo and a 42 offer from bklyn

yes, over the course of your life your career prospects from fordham will be good enough relative to bozo and brooklyn to justify attending despite less $$$
