Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I transferred to Fordham from Emory Law School after my first year. I have found Fordham to be more competitive than Emory, and unlike Emory, Fordham has a mandatory curve for small classes. On the other hand, I find the classes at Fordham to be more challenging, and the teachers to be more approachable.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are that you get a respected degree in education that is known around New York City DOE schools. The con is that some of the professors grading and teaching styles can be unpredictable throughout the semester, which is not very helpful for developing teachers.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the very important and informative education that is provided to the students of the MSW program. I have learned so much since I started at Fordham University and have made new friends who we assist each other when necessary for our assignments. The professors are helpful and are very understanding, at least to my own experience. There are not any cons that I could think of at the moment.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Fordham University makes sure to give you all the resources you need in order to confidently pursue your degree. They make sure to always gather feedback for improvement and help us maintain support within the students. Though it is expensive, it is worth it. The professors are qualified, know their stuff, and push you past your limits to success.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Given my life experiences I shouldn’t be here. I am here as a symbol of achievement and resilience, displaying to children of less fortune that this is a possibility. With this scholarship it will greatly assist me with my studies and ensuring the younger generation that all things are possible with a little help.
