Cardozo $$$ vs Fordham p/t

Cardozo $$$ vs Fordham p/t
« on: June 11, 2007, 08:40:42 PM »
I was set on Fordham p/t, still hoping for f/t, but then Cardozo turns around and ups my offer to 35K a year.  Thats basically a full scholarship.  I am also going to ask for housing b/c I know people who were offered free housing. 

What should I do.  I want big law in NY and money is not a major factor, but it is a factor.  If I go to fordham I would be taking on debt, nothing crazy, but enough that I am now unsure of what to do.

I would appreciate any thoughts, thanks

I'm just curious to hear what you guys think.

Also, has anyone heard of Cardozo offering free housing?

Do you need to maintain a 3.3 to keep the money?  That was the magic number last year.

top 40% to keep the full scholarship, top 50 still gives you 75%

I would probably take Dozo with the money.

Very wierd though, I got waitlisted at Dozo and in to Fordham FT. Just shows how subjective this whole process is.
