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.

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.
