    It just sounds like too much money for an undergraduate degree. Maybe go there for a graduate degree but there are much cheaper schools that give you the same perks.

    Fordham is pricey, but the job potential that comes from the well-rounded Jesuit core is renowned.

    It's extremely costly but the school has an excellent reputation and will produce well-rounded, critical thinkers. If you do well here, you'll most likely have an easy time finding a job or getting into a graduate school program.

    Great school and education, but it is pretty pricey. I would never transfer, however, based on the price. They offer a ton of financial aid and the school is really worth it.

    Fordham is SO expensive. They are very, very generous with aid and scholarships though (I think something like 90% of students have aid of some sort). Right now I'm paying more for room and board than tuition - which is completely ridiculous - but, hey, it is NYC. Fordham gives you a great education, and also extensive opportunities to apply your classroom knowledge to internships. Dorms at FCLC are really nice, and definetly the best bet for your money unless you plan to live in pretty dangerous areas like Washington Heights or the Lowe East Side.
