OK... i'm posting a little more info in the hopes of some more advice.

I know Fordham is a "better" school, i.e. more highly ranked and with a greater potential to tap into top manhattan firms.  Fordham is also a bit more convenient for me to get to.

If i go to cardozo, i will have to be top 1/3 to keep the scholly. If that's the case, are my options going to be the same as they would had I gone to Fordham? 

I know that Fordham is no Harvard or Columbia, but it's still a pretty good school.  at least in new york city, there is a certain mini-prestige that goes along with the Fordham name.  Will my options be the same if I go to Cardozo??  Or will that be limiting?

Is anyone else making a decision between these schools??

thanks!
