    Binghamton. No contest. Forget Fordham if it will cost you $80k more over four years.
    Binghamton attracts very high quality students.

    Binghamton has a much higher-quality student than Providence College. In Money Magazine's Best Colleges for Your Money, Binghamton is ranked #33. Providence is #216. In US News, Providence college isn't even ranked among national colleges and universities.

    Their rankings cannot be compared directly. US News ranks PC in regional universities due to its Carnegie classification.

    There is no difference between Bing, PC, or Fordham for the purpose of law school admission.

    Where would the difference come from? Can your family afford Fordham without loans?
    Are you looking for a Catholic university?

    (Have you accepted the waitlists?)

    If the difference comes from loans, then pick one of the two cheaper choices.
    If Bing and Providence are both the same net cost, then choose on whether you want a Catholic university or one of the strongest public universities in your state.
