I've finally made a decision and I'll be starting at Fordham this fall. I'm hoping anyone can give me any advice whatsoever about the school or possibly about housing. Does Fordham offer an RA program where law students can live in undergrad housing as an RA ?? I know they did at my undergrad (BC) and I'm curious because I need any financial assistance I can get. I'm also wondering if someone can tell me whether the classes at Fordham are primarily taught in the socratic method or lecture style. I know certain schools have their own overall ideology and I'm curious to know what Fordham's is. If anyone has anything they can tell me that would be helpful, I would really appreciate it, or if anyone is going to Fordham this fall and would like to share concerns, I have many, and would love to talk.
I was an RA in undergrad and I wouldn't recommend that anyone take on that commitment while attending a professional degree program. If you were getting a master's in excercise science, it would be a different story, but being an RA takes up a great deal of time. And, depending on the requirements of the job at Fordham, you may go over the 20 hours that the ABA actually allows you to work. Also, not all RA's get free housing. We didn't -- we only got a check for about 400 bucks a month.
