My D is looking for urban schools preferable in the NY area. We live in the west coast and don't have much information about schools in the east coast. We would like to have your opinion about Fordhams education, social life, location and any information you are willing to share with us to make an informed decision for her college. The majors she is interested are Theater (acting), English, Communications and/or possible Business. The ranking of interest is in the same order as listed. She is looking for a BA (not BFA) in Theater with a good Liberal Arts education and a second major and possible a minor in the areas listed above.
Regarding my D, her SAT score is 2070, GPA 3.7, will be a National Hispanic Scholar, has 1300+ hours of community service (most of it at a community theater in our neighborhood), will have good essays since she is a great writer, 6 APs by end of Senior year, Academic Summer programs, and many performances in plays since elementary school. She will have 3 years in the Select Jazz at her High School by graduation time.
Do you think Fordham is a good fit for her interests? Would you recommend her to apply to Fordham?
I appreciate your input to help my D with this very important decision in her life.
