Depends on what you wanna do. Screwed for biglaw? Unless you absolutely go nuts in the second semester, yes. Screwed in terms of normal jobs in general? No necessarily. Fordham has a good enough network and a respectable enough name where you can find something being at median (how good that something is depends on your connections).

Also you're graduating with minimal debt (despite nuking a decent chunk of your savings to do it), you're not screwed.

I'm having a really hard time motivating myself to do this all over again. Especially when it didn't work out the first time. Suggestions? I feel pretty defeated.
