Even though this is mainly a negative review,Not so bright
Even though this is mainly a negative review, I have to say fordham is good academic school. The class sizes are great to take advantage of professor office hours and student interactions. However, with that being said, the people suck here! All everybody does is go to bars on weekends and basically hibernate on the weekdays. Mind you too that bars are in the Bronx--they are sketchy for the most part. Yes, it can be fun once to drink the surrounding area of the Bronx is NOT the place to walk around drunk in. At least one person you know who goes here has been involved in an incident with someone in the Bronx. We get security alerts about muggings weekly--if not more. It you do not go out and feel uncomfortable with the area, you WILL BE SHUNNED! If you don't go out you have no other choice but to sit in your room. The people here come from money and most have a real attitude. The people for the most part are unattractive, but they're popular and have tons of friends because they get belligerently drunk almost every night in the BX (Bronx). PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE

Fordham is a beautiful and very connected schoolQuite BrightBiology
Fordham is a beautiful and very connected school that provides amazing opportunities, education, and involvement. The course offerings are great and everything is very high-tech. The only downfall is the administration. If you are super rich, or super poor, you are set. They will jump through rings of fire to help you out academically and financially. However, if you are in the middle class, you are on your own. I, unfortunately, fall in the category of middle class and I received no help from administration with anything. I was brushed aside and looked over. I had a handful of friends who have had the same experience. Fordham is a great school! It just isn't worth the money you pay. After your first semester you will feel it. You'll feel taken advantage of because of how much money you are paying and how little you get in return. I transferred out and never looked back. Go Rams!

Like any schools, Fordham has some pros andQuite BrightPsychology
Like any schools, Fordham has some pros and cons that anyone should know before coming here.
Pros: beautiful campus in NYC, smart professors at the top of their field, fun off-campus party scene, friendly student body for the most part, great size (around 8,000 undergraduates)Cons: the core curriculum, on-campus dining, strict administration and rigid rules, signing up for classes
