Be mindful that this university's population is madeQuite BrightEconomics
Be mindful that this university's population is made up of people from the tri-state area; mainly Long Island, New Jersey, Yonkers, some Westchester, and most commuters are from the boroughs. That being said, most people SUCK. They are stuck in high school and truly believe that cliques are still essential to life. Most people will pretend to want to hang out outside of class, complain about others not being friendly and how it upsets them, and then flake on you any chance you give them. You will be able to find a small group that is normal, friendly, and not fake - but most of the time people will disappoint you.

Also, just a warning: NEVER TAKE TBA's. You will always get screwed. Always. Fordham may have a plethora of wonderful and lovely professors, but for every handful of great ones there is one horrifying one that will make your semester miserable. The administration refuses to do ANYTHING to help out in those situations even though any normal human being would see the problem. I.e. A professor that teaches a 1 credit class need to calm down and not assign work as if it were a 4 credit class. Additionally, if my grade depends on whether or not my staple is at a 45 degree angle - YOU CLEARLY NEED MENTAL HELP.Sorry about the long review, but I truly wish someone had warned me thoroughly before I came.

Fordham University.BrightFinance
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.

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.
