I've finally made a decision and I'll be starting at Fordham this fall. I'm hoping anyone can give me any advice whatsoever about the school or possibly about housing. Does Fordham offer an RA program where law students can live in undergrad housing as an RA ?? I know they did at my undergrad (BC) and I'm curious because I need any financial assistance I can get. I'm also wondering if someone can tell me whether the classes at Fordham are primarily taught in the socratic method or lecture style. I know certain schools have their own overall ideology and I'm curious to know what Fordham's is. If anyone has anything they can tell me that would be helpful, I would really appreciate it, or if anyone is going to Fordham this fall and would like to share concerns, I have many, and would love to talk.
Does anyone hava any idea how health insurance work at Fordham law?? Again found the Admissions folks to be less than helpful... Geez if we have to pay for separate insurance, doesnt that eat up about all our living expense money per month?? HELP!
Fordham offers health insurance that runs about 1,200 a year. You should call the health center at the LC campus. (Note: at Fordham, going to the direct office instead of through Admissions will save you mucho time. You can find their number online) Instead of paying for health insurance monthly, just take out an extra 1,200 out in loans...that's how most law students at my school pay for it. However, if you don't think you need it or want it for some reason, you can use the health center for minor things, but if they have to send you to the ER, then you'll be left with a huge bill. Plus, being in the Jesuit Catholic tradition, Fordham does not prescribe contraceptives, nor do they refer you to places such as Planned Parenthood that can help you out if need be. Bottom line, try to get the health insurance plan they offer--they've got everything you may need.Quote from: suzi517 on June 29, 2005, 04:28:07 PMDoes anyone hava any idea how health insurance work at Fordham law??
