I think the determining factor is that you're talking about a transfer to Fordham, not just any school in the mid-50s to T14. From what I understand, Fordham outperforms its rank in terms of USNWR placement. Another good example of a school that vastly outperforms its rank is Howard.
I'm not sure about your transfer chances to NYU or Columbia, however, from my limited knowledge, I don't think you'll be a viable transfer candidate. Even if you don't get NYU or Columbia, no worries. As I previously said, Fordham has excellent job placement.
No, I did not go to Fordham. I have absolutely no dog in this fight.
