I was admitted into the Fordham evening program last Friday. I still remain on their full-time wait list but I don't foresee coming off of that one anytime soon.
I was all set to go to BC this Fall but now I'm hesitant. My significant other is in NYC so that is the real reason I'm reconsidering.
One thing that worries me about part-time programs in general and the Fordham part-time program specifically is the potential stigma associated with evening students that might harm my employment prospects. The admission statistics are noticeably lower than their day-time counterparts so employers might feel that the quality of the students are lower.
Also, I've heard that even if evening students transfer into the full-time program in 2L, they are somewhat seen as outsiders by the rest of the class and find it difficult to ease into the already established social circles/study groups.
Lastly, part of me is thinking that BC is slightly more prestigious nationally and turning down BC for Fordham PT is a step down-especially since I will not be getting aid at either location. It's one thing to choose between BC vs. Fordham full time but I feel it is quite another to choose between BC and Fordham part-time.
Thanks for all the help,
