Fordham no money vs. Brooklyn full ride.
I havent even heard from Fordham re: scholarship, but I assume I wont get one.
don't assume! i haven't heard about a scholarship yet, either, but the admissions officer i spoke to told me they've "hardly made any scholarship offers yet."
I would absolutely do the Brookly full ride. I went to grad school pre-law school application and I can tell you that it is killing me to know that the debt I have from grad school is looming. If you can avoid having to pay to go to school it's such a better place to be when you're done. Also, wouldn't it be better to potentially be a big fish in a smaller pond (i.e., Brooklyn) than fight to be at the top at Fordham?
Not a guarantee of this at all. I know some BLS kids, and I would not at all wager that I am smarter than them, or that I would have been valedictorian of their school, or any other such thing. If the BLS scholly is guaranteed for all three years (no GPA requirement), and you are certain you do not want biglaw, then it is something to consider, but otherwise I would think long and hard about this. I have serious issues with the BLS administration, which is why I did not apply.
