American vs. Fordham -- International Law

Postby Bailarina08 » Wed May 12, 2010 3:33 pm

I was just accepted to the American FT program from the waitlist. I've already deposited at Fordham, and am waiting on a few more waitlists. Since I want to practice International Law, and ideally work in the DC area, is American a much better choice? Would a Fordham grad be hired in DC? I know some people say the specialty rankings don't actually mean much for hiring purposes, so I'm torn.

American will place better in DC, despite being behind in the rankings. If that's where you want to be then yes, American is probably the better choice.

Wow! You got in?! Thats great!

BUT if you've already deposited at Fordham, i say go there... :wink:

Im just fooling with you. AU is great and if you want to stay in DC thats even more of a reason to go.
