Fordham or GW

Postby Kirkhor23 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 6:58 pm

Hey All,
I got into Fordham and GW. I would like to work in NYC after I am finished with school, maybe get a clerkship if possible, which school would be better fitted towards that end?

Seems like Fordham would be much better if you want to work in Manhattan. You'll be able to do externships in the city. They probably have an equal chance of getting you a clerkship.

It has to come down to what type of law you want to do, and what the total COA for each school ends up being. Need more info... If you're going IP/Patent, it's an easy GW choice. If you're going corporate and you want NYC for sure, then it goes to Fordham. (of course, this is all swayed by $$$$)

To me, this is a deal breaker.
