Dear Zedi, unfortunately I canÂ´t tell you much about Fordham. Actually, I have some friends that have studied at Fordham, and they seemed very pleased with the school, but I should say that their goals could have been different than yours (most of them had no interest at all in staying in the US after the completion of the LLM). So - all I can tell you is hearsay, which is not very useful when it comes (as you correctly point out) to spend a lot of money to pursue an LLM in the US.
But I can certainly tell you where Fordham is located: its law school is on West 61st street (if I am not mistaken), on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. If you need to find some reference nearby, look for the Lincoln Center - it is side-by-side. If you studied at Fordham, I suppose you would look for an apartment in that neighborhood (which is ok) or in other neighborhoods (cheaper). I donÂ´t know whether Fordham has a dorm for graduate students - for some reason, all my friends who studied there had to find a place on their own.
My advice would be the following: if Fordham is your favorite school, try to contact as many alumni you can (ask the admissions department for this info) and ask them what they thought about their experience and whether your expectations could be fulfilled.

thanks for all the information in your blog.
it change my advice about NYU, it look like very interesting to do an LLM in NYU especially if you live in the village if i undertood well.
what about the other LLM like the LL.M. in Banking, Corporate and Finance Law from fordham university?or harvard law school or yale.
last year i did my application to fordham university just in time but without my TOEFLand it wasn't possible to be accepted.
fordham is near NYU?it is great to live in new york if i hope do my LLm at fordham?or is very different?
could you explain me the mains differences between fordham and NYU (especially about the quality of the life, the blocks,)
I did my master degree's in financial Law and business Law and i will be business lawyer in my country in 6 months(if i pass my bar examination next april)
do you think it is intereting for me to spend lot of money to do my LLM in US?all the business in my country is in english and i need to improve my english.
