I think it would be great if we could all dialogue about our situations and consider the pros/cons of the two schools. If anyone would like to discuss their situation (Fordham v Brooklyn) I would love to talk about it, to sort of get a feel for how you all are approaching it.
Thanks so much
To be honest, (and I'm partial having spent my 1L at BLS), I really think that Fordham has some cache that doesn't translate into marketability. I know just as many Fordham 3Ls who are still looking for jobs as I do BLS 3Ls. Also, for what it's worth, BLS and Fordham each have 1 2L in my summer class of over 100.
I think to the extent that you have to choose, if you're getting significantly more from BLS, I'd say go for it (and if the situation were reversed--I'd be suggesting you go to Fordham).
