It seems like Fordham maxes out at $30k/yr this time around.

You are not the typical w/l case and I'm too classy to call bullshit on your story.

What's faster: taking a taxi from newark airport to a hotel in manhattan

or flying into JFK and taking the subway??

I'm asking because I can get a flight into newark for about $100 cheaper then JFK.

If its equally fast to just take a taxi, it makes economical sense.. ANyone have an opinion?

Fly to Newark, take the train to Penn station (do not get of at Newark Penn Station)
Honestly, Newark airport has the best connection into the city

This.

I did it for ASD last week and was extremely easy and the cost from EWR to the school, < $15. Took maybe an hour.

When you're a BAMF like JC, everything is extremely easy.

Sorry I have been M.I.A for while. Congrats to all those accepted!! I can only imagine how you guys must be feeling!! :) I applied 9/2011->Waitlisted (12/1) and also got the email inquiring about interest (6/29) with status update (7/2). With bated breath and beating heart....I humbly and gratefully wait.

Hey everyone just wanted to check in as I haven't in a while!

I can now say with 100% surety that I will be attending Fordham in the fall :D I could not be more impressed with the administration (who is infamously notorious on this thread for being so "stingy"/"cheap"). I retook the LSAT in June, (actually slightly disappointed & really should have done better) but nonetheless, I improved from 166--> 169 (UG GPA=3.4), and Fordham turned around with an immediate $20K/year offer. Extremely helpful to finance my legal education, and more then helpful in making my decision finalized. Can't wait to be in NYC soon!

Do we have any summer reading or is that limited to whatever first assignments we get once schedules are released?
