Please don't take this wrong but this is such an easy answer I don't know why you are asking.

So let me see if I understand this correctly. You are having difficulty choosing between a school (Fordham) ranked mid 30's (34th and in a tie to be exact) and UCLA which is ranked 16th. In addition you have a scholarship to UCLA and it appears none to Fordham.

It would appear your deductive and logic skills are not adequate to be a lawyer so my suggestion would be to save your money and not attend either school and find another profession. ;-)

So assuming you aren't a troll, and that you actually have trouble deciding between a school ranked 34th and 16th, I would say go to the 34th ranked school as there will likely be more people like you there.

Ok, I am still joking, but hopefully you should know that UCLA should be the easy pick especially if they are throwing even any money at you. Based on your question you should thank your lucky stars they accepted you and run, don't walk, to accept their admission offer. :-)

I hate to even be a little bit snarky like this should be such an easy choice for anyone. It like someone offering you $20,000 or $50,000 for free, which do you chose?

So you asked for tips. I would say if you aren't going to live at UCLA providing housing, then you don't wait to the last minute to find a place to live. Housing around UCLA isn't cheap as it is near Beverly Hills. On the chance you go to Fordham, be prepare to spend a lot of money on housing unless you live on campus.

No please tell me this post was a joke... Honestly if you can't chose between schools at obvious such different levels then you obviously haven't done even a minimal amount of research about the schools. Only thing that might make a difference is what exact program you are going into and I can't think of any area where Fordham has the top-ranked program.

So while you may have read somewhere that Fordham's LLM program is top ranked, top 10 even, almost no employer or even the rest of the world for that matter, is going to do a search and try and find some unknown ranking system that puts Fordham in the top 10 over schools like Stanford. So you will spend the rest of your life and trying to add a footnote on your CV trying to explain why you didn't go to a better ranked school. It would be different if you were choosing between schools in the T14 but you aren't.

Good luck wherever you go. Any of the top schools will generally have very good LLM programs. While I think Fordham's LLM program is likely better than a lot of schools that may be higher ranked in US New or ATL, I still would be a bit concerned about it. The actually were higher ranked back in 2009 and it seems like they aren't exactly flying up the rankings. Sure they bounced back from 38th on the list but they were at 29 in 2012.

I should add one thing. In your home country, which school is better known. I know that in some European countries, Fordham is reasonably well know. I would say that UCLA is better known worldwide.

I personally would ONLY chose Fordham if it was better known in my home country than UCLA. In my country, and most of the world, UCLA is better known than Fordham. In your country it may be different.

You'll need to decide which school has a better reputation in your country. Ask firms and see what they say. Ask your coworkers as well. If UCLA was giving me a scholarship I would likely go there even if Fordham was slightly better received in my home country. The UCLA campus is very nice, the location is wonderful, weather amazing AND very high quality education. For me it is UCLA all the way! Then again I am slightly biased as I like California schools and apparently they seem to like me based on admission offers. :-)

Just out of curiosity , why did you change your name from Davidopia to Oligato123?

Somewhat reinforces my opinion of the original post being posted by a troll rather than someone seriously looking for advice.
