I'm not going to lie, the location is the main attraction for me (I'm from NY, and have lived in other places for the last 5 years) because I'm anxious to be in NYC. However, I was genuinely impressed with what I saw. I'll agree with everyone else that the classrooms are really nothing to speak of, but that didn't bother me at all. I actually feel like a really high tech, brand new class room would be great, but its something that may cause you to choose a school for the wrong reasons. For example, I chose my undergrad based on dorm size...probably not the best idea. I think we have to take all the speeches from various deans/administrators with a grain of salt, but for some reason I really did get the impression that they are really interested in (if not the individual) preserving Fordham's reputation and recognize that taking extra measures to ensure success for the grads is the best way to do that.
The terrible classrooms aside, its still inexcusable that they'd have actually left the place dirty
, especially on the one day they'd be showing it off. The architecture/age of the building aside; it simply looked run down inside...certainly not well-cared for.
For those of you saying that its better this way, and perhaps it'll drive off the students who aren't deadset on giving their heart, soul, and first-born child to Fordham...well, yeah, I'd say it did a damn good job of that.
