Fordham (with 60%) or Cardozo with Full ride
« on: April 26, 2005, 02:13:21 PM »
Hello -

Would you please give me your opinion on which is the better choice?  Fordham with about 60% scholarship (part time) or Cardozo with full tuition scholarship.

Fordham funds are guaranteed regardless of grade.  Cardozo requires 3.3 gpa.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Definitely Fordham. The alumni base, greater recognition in NYC and the small difference in cost in the long run (along with being GUARANTEED) makes this a no brainer to me. Only reason I would choose Cardozo is if you plan to do public interest or want to get your degree a little faster and are highly confident and will work hard to maintain that 3.3+ GPA.

I would shoot for a higher-ranked school, actually.  I think you are competitive at places better than Fordham.

Thanks for all the responses.  I think I'd be competitive at others too, but I needed a part time program and also needed to stay in the NY area.  I did apply to Columbia and NYU but got shot down.

So, looks like Fordham it is....
