Fordham University. I have a massive scholarship and thought for a Business major it would be perfect since NYC is just a subway stop away. That's how they sell you the school, truthfully this school will beat you up. Fordham grades on a curve and Fordham also grades on a deflation basis. For instance, my A in my Fall class has been bumped down to a B+ because a lot of people have between a 98-100 and I had closer to a 98. It isn't right but thats in the professor handbookFordham will leave even the brightest students with a shit GPA and they don't care. Don't go to Fordham because you'll work hard for a shit GPA and you won't get a good job because of it.

Question
I don't get the Fordham bashing here.AverageComputer Science
I don't get the Fordham bashing here. If you complain everyone is rude and arrogant, it means you have not looked past your dorm floor. The commuters especially are such an amazing group of people, I personally know all of them since i live 10 minutes off campus so I commute. Seriously, talk to us you don't have to be stuck with the jersey shore types. Campus is just stunning, one of the most gorgeous. The Bronx, its kind of bad but use common sense and you will be fine. Fordham is OVERPRICED, do not spend the full 40k. In general however until now they have been generous and for the money im paying I love Fordham. The Common Core is kind of shit but push through it, maybe you will even discover subjects you enjoy. Overall, I love Fordham and would recommend it.

Question
The GSAS admin is very shady and theQuite BrightPsychology
The GSAS admin is very shady and the graduate grading is faked. They will intentionally downgrade the student so that the student is forced to pay per credit in order to graduate. No professional connections or direction whatsoever. GSAS admin don't even follow the rules to their own handbook. DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. It is not worth the tuition.
