What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
Fordham has courses of varying academic rigor; the honors programs' courses especially offer a rigor unheard of in any AP program. As hard as some of the courses may be, the general attitude of the professors is one that wants you to succeed, which makes asking for help in the difficult classes that much easier.
Vanessa from Valencia, CA
Overall, the class sizes are very small. This semester, two core classes have around 20 students and the rest are fewer than 10. Because they are so small, participation is mandatory. The classes are all heavily weighted in reading, which requires time management to understand the content and be prepared for participation in the next class. The teachers are all highly rated, and commonly teach at multiple schools in the city (namely NYU or Columbia) and expect the highest of their students.
Emma from Harmony, PA
I was on the pre-medical track and the classes were pretty tough but it really depends on which classes you decide to take during your time there.
Anelisa from North Miami Beach, FL
Fordham's classes require a lot of work and outside-of-class time, but they are very rewarding. Everything that the professors teach you is extremely valuable for the course, life, or both. The courses may be tough but extremely enriching.

If you focus and manage your time, should not be a problem. Nevertheless,difficulty is evident and you will see yourself improving.
Constantine from Randolph, NJ
The academics are challenging for those not willing to put the work in and rewarding for those who are. There is free time to be had by all, including pre-med students. The pre-med track is by far the most challenging offered at Fordham.
Jake from Ellenville, NY
Courses are aligned with providing students with a great education and preparing them for the real world. Academic cores are a challenge and so one has to be prepared for the challenge.
