I am just a second year law student so I certainly do not have all the answers. However, practically speaking Fordham comes in 3rd, 4th, 5th place in it's own market. NYU, Colombia, are head & shoulders above Fordham. Then Cardozo & Brooklyn are about as good from what I understand. Not to mention you will have Harvard, Yale, Stanford, UCLA, etc grads competing for jobs in New York. Fordham is a fine school, but in my 2nd year law student opinion (which means I know very little) unless you go to an ELITE school you might as well get out as cheaply as possible. I would not think employers would be flooding to Fordham to hire grads when all those other schools I mentioned will be competing with you. You can get out of Fordham with 90k more in debt than some of the other schools in New York like CUNY. If you graduate from Fordham you can say you went to the U.S. News 38th best school and if you think that is worth 90k then knock yourself out. I have never been impressed by the 38th best anything and in my limited experience in the legal field this far 38th best law school won't raise any eyebrows either.
In regards to Miami law that might be a little different, because Miami is probably top dawg in Miami. So there the extra money might be worth it. Or if you wanted to be in Utah BYU would be worth extra money. If you wanted to be in Washington State University of Washington is worth the extra money. Nebraska go to Nebrasksa you can see a theme. If a school is top in it's own market then it is a good buy. If U.S. decides to say it is the 39th best school, but 4 schools in the same city are ahead of it then you can imagine people are not going to lineup to hire from the 5th best school in their area.
