Title: gw $$$$ vs fordham $$$$
Post by: lsdstudent on June 03, 2012, 01:28:55 PM
hey im a nj kid and trying to decide between gw at $25000 a year vs fordham at $15000. I ultimately want to end up in nyc, but am ok if I don't start there immediately.

GW has a higher rank (does that really even matter?) and has offered more money, but fordham has the connections in the city. What does everyone think I should do. They have both let me extend my decision until tmr...

If you want to end up in NYC, then Fordham is your best choice.  GW probably doesn't have a market in NY.

Out side of the T14 I'd focus on region first, then price, then rank.

TCR.  If you want NYC, Fordham.  If you want DC, GW.
