BC vs. Fordham

Postby lkb » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:42 pm

Both offered roughly the same scholarship.

I feel that I prefer BC but Fordham's NYC location is a big draw, especially since I would like to work in New York. Does the location of the school really have that big of an impact on post-grad employment?

Basically I'm having a very difficult time choosing. Any and all thoughts would be much appreciated!

Yes, location matters.

What do you want to do in NYC? And what's your total COA?

Ideally, Biglaw litigation. COA = 55,000 (x3).

Neither.

Your best option is to retake and reapply for better schools at better costs. You have about a 30-40% at biglaw from either school, and you can't justify that much debt for those chances.
