Good School

4.0 of 5 stars

December 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The curriculum definitely prepares students for the practice of law. In the same vein, there are some absolutely fantastic professors.

Downers

The career office is borderline useless; they can't be bothered to help any students find jobs. The administration also sucks.

Comments

Keep in mind that Fordham does decently well at biglaw placement in NYC, but isn't on par with NYU or Columbia. Only the top of the class gets biglaw positions.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Comments

The people- everyone is willing to help each other excel
The professors- everyone is so well educated and approachable
The location- right by Lincoln Center- it does not get better than that

Downers

The lack of diversity overall. While there is a good balance between females and males... there are not many cultures reflected in the student body.

Comments

If you are looking for a competitive environment with friendly people and extremely intelligent professors- this place is perfect for you.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fordham is a better choice

March 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great professors who have actual legal work experience and teach real world materials.

Downers

The course offerings do not include practice areas geared towards a big law career.

Comments

The night program is top quality and allows working students to graduate from a high caliber school while still working.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fordham Law

5.0 of 5 stars

December 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Excellent professors, excellent career opportunities, first class facilities, and excellent library resources

Downers

Many interesting courses are taught in the evenings, which is sometimes inconvenient and many of the best classes had overlapping time

Comments

Fordham is a great place to go to school, but understand that it is a NYC-based school and will not provide you with geographic mobility from a job perspective

Would You Recommend

Yes

October 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Access to all the highest regarded law firms in the country. Great alumni network. Evening division.

Downers

Administration is a nightmare. Impossible to speak with someone that can actually help if there is a problem.

Comments

Disproportionate number of alumni that are or have been federal or state judges. The school attracts people that work harder than most and that give back.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The location. Downtown NYC makes for a good time. The new building is extremely nice, and you won't find one better.

Downers

The cost is prohibitive, and not worth it. Unless you finish in the top third of the class Fordham's reputation will not help you.

Comments

Do not go to this school unless you will not have to go into debt to do so.

Would You Recommend

No

Classmates are generally a pleasure. Some professors are very invested in seeing students succeed and put in a great effort.

Downers

Some professors are just phoning it in, not interested at all. Also job prospects are not great.

Comments

Cost of living and tuition are very high and the administration is quite stingy.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Very good school for the top

There are excellent job opportunities for the top 25% of the class.

Administration is not concerned with what any student thinks and makes things as difficult as possible.
