I've applied to both as a Transfer for Business Econ/Accounting and I really like both in their own aspects.
I feel like Fordham would have more the college feel with more of an on campus lifestyle. I know Fordham might be ranked high but after college ratings are out the door. I can't imagine Fordham not being able to help their students get an internship.
On the other Hand Drexel has the co-op and has the ability to give me 12 months work experience in the 3 years while I am there. I would graduate with work experience and probably be ahead of most other graduates. Although I am all for the co-op program I don't feel overly excited about it like I do Fordham.
I really like Fordham for its traditional campus in the middle of the bronx. (Applied to RH by the way) I love all the green space on campus and the fact that it has athletic fields for intramurals etc.
I visited both schools in the same week during the summer. I don't think I was able to see a lot of Drexels campus. In fact I am hoping someone might be able to show me some pictures that might sway my decision. I like Drexel and the fact that it really truly is urban but at the same time I really REALLY want to be able to play sports, intramurals, club, etc. I don't know if Drexel does a lot of this in doors in the new rec center but that would be better than nothing.
I went to the Drexel accepted students presentation in SoCal yesterday and was not overly impressed. I knew I really like Drexel for the co-op program but I was not able to really learn much new about Drexel.
I really like Drexel for the co-op but Fordham seems to be more of the college feel.
Anyone else applying to both or willing to my dilemma. I like them both for two completely opposite reasons.
