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.
