USC has a good football team, people on the East Coast have heard of them. Fordham... I'd honestly never heard of the school before looking into law schools.
If you're really worried about the portability of your degree, take USC.
Bad enough you're translating everything to this stupid game, you also give bad advice. Fordham is very well known and respected in New York Real Estate world. I worked at Citi RE Capital Markets one summer and my MD (that's Managing Director) was a Fordham Law grad (a recovering lawyer). USC is obviously better for Entertainment. I assure you that not too many NYC Real Estate attorneys went to USC, though.
What the @#!* crazy *&^% are you talking about? What stupid game? Are you contending that more people have heard of Fordham than USC, or that USC's football team isn't responsible for a large part of USC's name recognition with the common man? Good lord you lack common sense. It probably doesn't help that you're from NJ/NY.
Your reading comprehension needs some work as well. I said for portability
the OP should take USC. Of course Fordham is going to be a bigger name in NYC and the surrounding area, you'd be retarded to assume otherwise. However, USC is going to play as well or better most everywhere else. And of course most NYC real estate attorneys didn't go to USC, USC people would probably never trade California for New York.
Don't get so pissed off whenever someone tells the truth about some school that you either spent too much money to go to, hope to spend too much to go to, or have some irrational loyalty to. I like Fordham based on everything I've seen, I really do. But I also recognize their limitations, one of those being that besides academic types and people from your neck of the woods, not many people have heard of Fordham.
