I knew from day one my roomate wasBrightChemistry
I knew from day one my roomate was a nightmare. If you come here to Lincoln Center, DEMAND to switch rooms immediately if you know that's how it's going to be. She drinks, comes in all hours of the nights,says hurtful things to everyone, expects other people to pick up after her and has alienated our whole floor not including most of our class. The RA's response to my asking for help was to tell me there was nothing they could do about it, and then went on to tell me how I'd get in trouble for booze in the room even if it wasn't mine. Basically, bureaucracy does not want to help you at all, they just want to avoid trouble and paperwork. It shows how much they don't actually give a shit about their students. Fordham wants to be like Georgetown, but it's no where near. IF this school wasn't in nyc, it'd be off any type of maps ranking wise etc. DONT' COME HERE. it's not worth it.

It's tough being an international student here.BrightEconomics
It's tough being an international student here. there aren't too many of us but we exist. but the International Students office is extremely unreliable and slow. It's hard to work with them when you dont have a choice, if you're leaving the US or your visa docs are an issue.

Most of my professors were nice, but administration drove me insane. they're snooty, and dysfunctional. The school may be better to have a crew of trained monkeys.

Lastly, I thought this was a liberal Jesuit institution. I didn't expect to be badmouthed and given unfair treatment by radical catholic kids and some theology professors. Administration and residential life (i became fed up after a year and a half, and left the dorms) never listen with an open mind. They are always after scapegoats, and never the accept the mistakes they've made.

I am unsure about the situation in Rose Hill, but speaking out for Lincoln Center, this school has a great deal to improve.

I don't know whatSuper BrilliantBiology
I don't know what all the hype was about Fordham. I don't know how some professors made it here. They are way too self-absorbed pieces of hell and are unapproachable. The core curriculum serves as a means to butcher your GPA plus the deans are really arrogant.
