All 7? That's a lotta books.

Only 2 of my 5 classes have syllabi right now. No books, no info on the other 3. Sweet.

Did you go through the bookstore site? I think nearly all books are posted there when you put in your courses. I have zero syllabi but got all my books of there.


I would have but they closed at three.

Seven books for 300 I can almost afford. (Almost meaning when finaid pays out the balance of what I have left.)

For Property my syllabus lists 30-35 pages for each of the next 3 classes or so, so 16-20 is not bad at all. (maybe you weren't being facetious?)

I'm right there with you. I really just need to stop checking and wait for people in my classes to text me and let me know.

Any by the way, why is Fordham spending 500 million (500 million!!!???) on a new building? Is that the proper thing to do when law school costs are spiraling out of control? Shouldn't that 500 million be used to fund scholarships for qualified candidates?

Whyshould they?
For a long time Fordham didn't give out merit scholarships at all, only need based.
It's only recently that rankings pressure has led them to start bribing students to come.
Do you think they would have empty classes without scholarships? They'd still fill up. Merit schollys are used purely to buy a higher average LSAT/GPA, which has become thè new standard for law schools, but is kinda ridiculous if you think about it (my money says if all schools stopped doing that, the rankings would remain more or less the same)
Obviously, they find that getting a new building is more important that bribing more students and possibly climbing from being ranked 29 to being ranked 27.
Fordham is, was, and will be 3rd best in NYC and thè best shot at NY biglaw outside the T14.


They should offer aid to qualified applicants (this is a controversial position?) because the cost of law school has increased far beyond inflation, completely out of proportion to the opportunity most law schools, including Fordham, afford. Why should they? Because if they don't, the majority of Fordham law students, which doesn't get jobs paying the NYC market rate, will drown in debt for the rest of their lives. Is that a good enough reason?


So they don't drop 9 points in the rankings. HAHAHAHAHA! (Last cycle, Dean Brown was just incredibly rude...and now, comeuppance have been had for being oh so very stingy...stingy, stingy, stingy...)

You know what the difference is between JenDarby's vacation and the one you're about to take? Hers is voluntary.

Wait, I thought this was the current applicants' thread at first. Why did moj necro an old thread to post the end of the debate I guess he was having somewhere else?

Well I'm sure the question has been beaten to death, and I shouldn't expect much, but when can I expect news on merit scholarship?

Thanks sunny - I hadn't checked in there yet. That is a more appropriate thread going forward.
