One of Fordham's biggest draws is its location in NYC (I would like to work there after graduation), but I was wondering whether location should play that big of a role in my decision? I would really appreciate any thoughts on BC vs. Fordham.
If u want to practice in NyC, then pick Fodham. I can't see how going to BC helps in the NYC market-when NYC has so many great schools.
I know BC is ranked higher, but its not an ivy league, where it has that certain Pull...imo (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
Who gave the bigger skolly?
What is your financial/living situation like?
Fordham gave the bigger skolly. Seems everything is pointing towards it, I apparently just need some confirmation
Agree with lillawyer2's post. Sounds like Fordham has $ and location over BC--what does BC have over Fordham for you? Is it just the comparative ranking or is there another factor?
FWIW, location has played an unexpectedly big role in my choice (though I'm still deliberating) but you gotta do what's right for you.
Yep, it's the ranking. Although it's probably silly/unnecessary for a relatively close ranking to affect me so much.
