you think this is accurate though? Do Fordham grads really placed that high or is it a skewed/biased report?
Well any school is going to spotlight the numbers in a way that makes them the most attractive, and without researching it myself I can't say whether that chart is true, but again, Fordham has a very good reputation in NYC firms, they know what they're getting with Fordham grads.
Yeah I know Fordham is a good school but I just don't understand why it's ranked 34 this year. Obviously a lot of factors come into play like you said earlier, but what I'm having a hard time with is this:
I'm from CA, but I LOVE NYC and want to live there for a while...so I'm looking at NYC schools. I have absolutely no idea what my mindset is going to be like 3.5-4 years from now...I don't know if I'm going to still love NYC and want to live there or if I'm going to want to move back home. So let's say I get into USC, which is T20, and have a choice between there and Fordham. I feel like USC is the better option overall and will definitely be the best choice if I want to live in LA or CA in general, but I have my heart set to go to NYC for a while and I might want to end up there. How do I justify picking #34 over #18 if I have no idea where I want to be in 4 years??
