Wow - first off, congrats! I know Fordham was your first choice, and I know you'll be happy with your decision, either way.
I also have been offered PT at Fordham, and I'm glad this thread is here to get some insight on that option.
It would mean not uprooting my family to go to W&L or Illinois, I wouldn't have to buy a car, etc. Also, no one (attnys I work with, etc.) in New York seems to know anything about W&L or UIUC when I mention them, but if you say "Fordham", they brighten up, give a list of people I should speak with, etc.
I also have a Cardozo FT acceptance, I hadn't given much thought to. (sorry anyone who is offended by this! it's just that I had had my heart set on moving out of NYC, and I so love the south...)
Could you advise what you liked about Cardozo? I'll have to go visit I think. If anyone has specific advice as to if one were to choose between Cardozo FT and Fordham PT, which would be better?
I'd just like to add that when someone posts an inquiry like this, comparing two programs, etc, it doesn't just help them but also others (like me) who are making the same or similar decisions.
Also, the name of the board IS "where should I go next fall" ...
