Basically living expenses at both places are the same it is just that Loyola is giving me 20,000 for the first year...i do like the idea of living in LA a little better...the loyola campus def. isn't as nice as fordham's...i am just hearing just scary things about employment coming from a tier 2 school...but i thought Loyola had a good alumni network????

Go with Loyola with if you want to work in LA, Fordham if you want to work in NY.  It is as simple as that, provided that we are talking FT Loyola v. PT Fordham.  If FT Loyola v. FT Fordham, I would have difficulty deciding.  you should definately use your Fordham acceptance as a means to negotiate your scholarship with Loyola.

Loyola2L would completely agree with you

If you have any aspiration of leaving NY, then sir, you need to go to Tier 1 Fordham. 
Debt sucks, but your options will be worth it.
