Between the two, I think GW is better. In fact, back when I applied to transfer I did not even consider Fordham for a second. The reason for that is Fordham's rep is pretty much nonexistent outside of NY/NJ/CT. Since I wanted to have access to other markets (greater chances of getting the kind of job I want) and not be locked into NY/NJ/CT I didn't bother with Fordham.
Another downside to Fordham is that if you miss the biglaw boat, NY/NJ is a very rough job market. The smaller and midsize firms mostly deal in insurance defense and the like, and many people who don't get biglaw resort to temping to pay their loans.
At least with GW, assuming you have geographic connections to one or more secondary markets, you can target the better small boutique and midsize firms in those markets that pay decently if you don't make biglaw. I think that would be much harder from Fordham because of the lack of any national or semi-national reach at that school.
How do all of you feel about GW vs Fordham? I still have an app out there, and was wondering if I should withdraw. Thanks in advance for any comments!
