I'll be applying to Fordham in a couple of years.  Do you like NYC? 

QUESTION FOR EVERYONE:  What do ya'll think of NYC/Fordham?  Is that a good 'national' school? 

I don't plan to work in New York, but might want to go to NYU or Fordham.

I think Fordham is definitely considered a national school.  NYC is what it is, but expensive as hell for a law student, if you ask me.

What kind of numbers do you have those that are waitlisted at Fordham?
I haven't heard from them yet. (Me: 162/3.74.)

Fordham is not considered a national school, at least, it's not anymore national than BU or BC.  However, Fordham is still considered a very good school.  Not up to the level of Columbia or NYU, but very respected.  It also has great placement rates in and around NYC and elswhere in the tri-state area (NY/NJ/CT).

The reason it is considered more regional is because most recruiters at the school are NY firms.  I don't think this is a problems since most of the student body choose to remain in the area after graduation anyway.  If you wanted to go elsewhere, you may have to do some outside research and set up your own interviews, but you should do well even if you decide to go that route.  Fordham may not be national, but going there shouldn't close any doors.

(BTW, I know three people who went to Fordham law in the past few years.  All were happy there, and all chose Fordham over higher ranked schools that were not in the New York area.  None of them seem to have any regrets.)

Hi,

I'm a French law student with a business law graduate degree and two master's degrees (media law and industrial property) and I'm currently trying to apply for an LLM degree at Fordham.

I sent a complete application file from France by FedEx in december, and I still haven't received anything from the school yet. Can anyone tell me when I should receive an e-mail from them?

You're kidding! Really? Sorry to hear - you're GPA is excellent, and LSAT average 165...doesn't make sense...

Where else did you apply, and what were the results?

I don't follow...was that a 3.78 in "television observation" or something?  one should have a fighting chance at Columbia or NYU with those numbers...definitely Boalt or Cornell
