GWU is better for international law; good in dispute resolution.
Fordahm is known for its corporate program.
GWU is better in ranking and as far as I have heard they have renovated the school, so it has a nice ambiance and nice campus.
Fordham is in NYC, better access to jobs and interviews, good reputation among NY Law firms and quite good corporate program, not that good campus (someone will argue, but I personally did not like it).
Do not know...if you get any money from GWU, go for it. If not...then just flip the coin;)
Hope, it will be helpful...apart of the coin of course;)

Hi. I have been admitted to both Fordham (Banking, Corporate and Finance law) and GW (General LLM), so I have thought of this matter too. Maybe I will choose Fordham, since I would like to pursue my career in the corporate law (I've not heard about GW in corporate law field), and love a life in a big city like NY (gven that I will be back to my home country after graduation), although I also know the US news ranking (GW is better than Fordham) and good reputation of GW in IP. Sorry I do not know about the international law field...

Thanks for the information
I have a scholarship which covers tuition, transportaion, living expenses, books, stipends, visa fee and everything related to studying in US. I should apply to Fordham, GWU, Tulane and U. Califorinia Davis. So, in my case, international corportate law, which one looks better to choose if be admitted in more than one?
I can not work for two years in US after my graduation.

Hi shayan, I would probably choose GW. But if you prefer to stay in NYC for one year go with Fordham.

As regards UCDavis I don't think that it is a very good law school: I have a friend of mine who went there and even if she was not very good at the Law School in Italy (low grades) and she did not spoke English fluently she managed to get high grades. Anyway, after her LL.M. she struggled to find a job in Italy and she landed in a small firm with poor pay roll (...this made me wonder about the quality of such institution).
But, maybe, that was only her experience and there are many brilliant graduates from UCDavis outhere who can rebut my impressions.
Finally, as to Tulane, I don't know much.

Who is admitted in Fordham or GWU? And when will they inform the late applicants? I applied to Fordham and GWU on Feb 23. Is the wait going to be too long?

Who knows about the time frame GWU and Fordham send admission or rejection letters to their applicants?

First of all, GW Law is a national law school. Fordham is not.
Fordham sends tons of grads to NY biglaw firms but if you want to work outside the NYC area, very few know about it.
GWU allows you to work anywhere in the country.
However, if you plan to work in NYC you can truly flip a coin (keep in mind though, that if you want to practice someplace else, a Fordham degree will be worth much less)
