UC Hastings $$ or Fordham??? URGENT!

Postby bearsEATtrees » Wed Apr 14, 2010 12:44 pm

I was admitted to both UC Hastings and Fordham... I received about a 1/3 scholarship from Hastings ($20k a year) and haven't heard anything about scholarships/financial aid from Fordham. At first that was enough of an incentive for me, I grew up in SoCal and am graduating from a school in the East Bay. However, the new USNWR rankings have made me a bit worried. Hastings dropped a few spots... is this something I should just ignore and go to Hastings or is there a significant enough difference in their ranks to make me SERIOUSLY reconsider to Fordham??

Fordham has been frustrating because I never received my admissions packet in the mail even after repeated phone calls, even though I was admitted by email over a month ago and have gotten tons of admitted student emails from them.

This is kind of urgent since the Fordham deposit is due tomorrow :-/

I'm also waiting on a few waitlists including UCLA and GULC.

any advice would be AMAZING! Unfortunately I couldn't visit Fordham and Hasting's admit day is AFTER Fordham's deposit is due...

minor fluctuations in rankings do not matter. if you want to practice in California, stay with Hastings. if New York, then Fordham.
