Is it worth transferring?
You will perform about as well as a top 5% student at Fordham. Possibly worse if you don't have a good reason.
I know somebody who was top of the class at a good school (mid tier 1), transferred to a great school (T6), and got pwned by OCI. Still got a job, but not nearly of the caliber her credentials suggested would have been possible from the former school. She claims it was BECAUSE of the transfer. I think it more has to do with the transfer personality.It just puts you in an awkward position for the interview to which you need to come up with a good story.
But for the most part, the firms aren't going to be doing some elaborate calculus. They'll probably know Fordham and probably know if they'd consider you. If the firm didn't interview at Fordham, that might be a boon. If they did, you probably won't fare differently - so long as you have a good answer to the 'why transfer' question.
