General Board / Re: Help me decide Fordham vs GW vs BU.

Agreed with Thorc's above post.  It really becomes a matter of personal choice.  The one thing I will say GW will have over Fordham is that if there is even a remote possibility that you won't practice in NYC. Fordham pulls well in NY, but not in other big markets like DC or CA.  While GW is no Georgetown or any of the other T14's in terms of national reputation, I think it beats out Fordham on a national level.

Maybe you can't read, which maybe is a reason you should buy one.
I do believe I said nothing takes the place of doing your OWN outline, but these can be used to SUPPLEMENT it.

You are an idiot.  Probably not even a law student, or, if you are, likely a garbage one.  Why would anybody pay you for your outlines whenever there are free databases on the web?

This is ridiculous.  Nobody knows who you are, what your credentials are, etc.... Not to mention that a blanket outline doesn't work.  They need to be specific to the casebook, the textbook, and the Professor.  Go peddle your wares elsewhere cupcake.

GULC is a great school, but dude, don't get all high and mighty over it.  It's not as good as you students there like to make it out to be.  Sure, it places better than GW, but it is not miles apart in terms of rep.  GULC is the bottom of the T14, and GW is a decent T20 school (generally speaking).

Also, I don't think looking at overall associates at GW vs. Fordham does much good.  GW has become a top school over the last 10-15 years.  Fordham used to be much better ranked and placed better a decade ago.  However, each year it seems to slip back and forth.  Location can only carry you so far.

What does it mean when there are numbers in parenthesis?  I.E. It will have the number of summer associates for a particular year as 10(2) for 2L's.  Does that mean these folks split the summer?  Does it mean they were 2L's but not graduating until for two more years due to being PT or getting a joint degree?

Go through the entire vault 20, then let me know how it goes.  Also, you have to have much better grades at Fordham I think than you do at GW to get Biglaw.

Hate to break it to you, but GW is the Fordham of DC.  Get over it.

Hardly big guy.  Maybe you could say that about Catholic, or American, but definitely not GW.

Going down every year?  Fordham's track over the past 4 years has been 33, 32, 25, 27.  So on average about 5 ranks lower than GW, but whether that difference outweighs the location advantages is at the least disputable.

OP also did not specify what she wishes to practice.  Fordham may be reasonably expected to give her much better contacts for small/medium firm, gov't, and public interest work in NYC than GW.  As for large firms, I don't see evidence of their epiphany as you so claim.

Where do you go and where do you base it on?  I see it first hand.  Also, its a well known fact that fordham is a bad school hiding in a metropolis.....

What kind of summer job do you have as a 1L though peaches?  Getting a summer job, and getting biglaw are drastically different.

In case you haven't noticed, every year Fordham goes down in the rankings.  It's a crappy school and only survives because of its location.  However, firms are realizing this more and more each year.....
