Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel as though academic competitiveness to get into the program is not as high as some would think. There is the usual mix of good professors and bad professors, and I've had experiences with both. Overall the program is good, with elements of uniqueness, such as pertinent classes not offered in other programs.However, this is a very expensive program, especially if you require graduate housing. Financial aid isn't enough to cover tuition and housing.The campus is in Midtown Manhattan, so of course it's a wonderful area, but also costly. Security and technology are on par, but transportation is mostly public. Most of the students are commuters, so social life for most graduate students is limited to classroom time and between classes. The workload is intense once field practice begins, especially if you're also juggling jobs or family life. Overall this is a great program.

The professors in this program are high-level professionals, who can lead us think and learn more deep in this field. Different background students work together which let us learn more from each other.

The program has a strong foundation in the core courses but I wished there were more electives to choose from or more opportunities to specialize degree program!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

As an educational institution, Fordham Law School is excellent. However, i believe that the cost of tuition is unjustifiably high.
