If you're going to make a statement like that, you need to back it up.
No photos = it didn't happen.
Name the firms.
I've been reading your posts and as far as I can recall, you've said very little that is positive, about Fordham. If you don't mind my asking, why did you apply, in the first place? Not snarking - seriously interested.
I purposely used the word "heard"- I did not say "I know for a fact it happened" and therefore feel no need to justify my statement. It is what it is, hearsay, and I never wanted it to come off as anything else. As common in a forum, I put it out there to see what other people have heard and whether they can confirm or give any other kind of input. DrGuano did exactly that, and I am glad he did- Thanks for that!
When you say " you've said very little that is positive, about Fordham" do you have an expectation that people are going to the Acceptances, Denials and Waitlists forum to discuss how great the schools they applied to really are? I expect people to discuss... well, acceptances, denials and waitlists, and related issues. I post my concerns about whether or not to accept my spot as a result of my being admitted, and that's completely appropriate here. I could've posted that in the "Discuss Your Law School" section, but I've gotten to know some people here and trust their input, plus I know they've probably been doing research just like me. That being said, just in my last post, the one you replied to, I praised Fordham's location and the 'vibe' I get, and frankly, I don't know how much more positive it gets without actually having visited the school. The times I've actually outright bitched about Fordham were related to my insecurity about whether or not I'll be admitted/ they would meet the EA deadline.
I applied because unlike many people who have Fordham as a back up to T14 (read: NYU and Columbia), I am interested in some of their unique international programs. I want to study abroad in Paris, and Fordham is one of the few schools to offer a year-long study abroad at the Paris II university know for its speciality in EU law.
