Also, can anyone comment on the career opportunities?
I am thinking of just going for Fordham (hopefully with nice scholly) and in my mind putting an end to this terrible waiting game. At this point, I'm not even sure I would like to go to the higher ranked schools I applied to, if admitted. NYC>>> any other city IMO
I can't really comment on the career opportunities firsthand, but Fordham Law is very well regarded in the NY area. Obviously in the NY market you're competing with much of the east coast T-14, but outside of that I think Fordham has the best placement in NY. I hate using the "in this economy" caveat, but things may be somewhat more difficult now.
As far as the location goes: I love NYC. Fordham's campus is arguably in one of the best parts of the city. The upper west side is beautiful, residential, and a little quieter than much of the rest of Manhattan but you're a short subway ride away from anything. Fordham is next to Lincoln Center, two blocks from Columbus circle (The CNN studio is located there), and two blocks from central park. It's an amazing location.
I feel like OperaSoprano now, haha
