Transferring from Pace to Fordham?

Postby king_crypto » Wed Feb 07, 2018 4:39 pm

Much of the "school choice" discussion that occurs here is based on price of tuition. I have a full ride virtually anywhere with my veterans benefits. That being the case, I am wondering if it is worthwhile to transfer to a better school in the NYC area. I am ranked top 15% at Pace. I am considering sending transfer applications to Fordham and Cardozo. Is it better for me to stick it out here at Pace and try to be ranked as high as I can or to transfer to the best name possible for my resume and risk not being ranked nearly as high? I would appreciate some thoughts on the matter. Thanks.

If Fordham would cost the the same as Pace and you can get in, I would transfer. Fordham has a markedly better reputation in NYC and you would have more opportunities.
