Could you explain a little more what your concern is?
I would characterize Fordham as moderately cutthroat. First year students know they have to excel in order to get the big law jobs that will help them repay loans, and some of them have their eyes towards transferring. But students generally cooperate, because 1Ls need to rely on each other. I think it's one of the many paradoxes of law school that although we really are in competition with one another, we have to cooperate.
Upper level is different - everyone gets their grades, law review placement is determined, and a minority of students get their summer associate hookups. The hierarchy has been established. Your law school "section" is irrevocably broken up - no one cares the section anymore. Many students are disappointed and bitter; some become arrogant. Students find that things they had done all year, including studying and sharing with their classmates, has not helped. As a result, the upper level becomes necessarily less cooperative.
