Fordham is discussed favorably in the Falling in Love with My Safety School thread
Just my own personal rankings based on my experience with these schools over the years as a student and, now, as a parent:
2) Notre Dame
3) Boston College
4) Holy Cross
They are all good schools; however, in your shoes, JuniorMint, I would have made the same decision that you did.
Anyone have any sense of which of the Jesuit schools are the most diverse and accepting ethnically? The stats don't always tell the story, so we are most interested in personal experiences and perspectives.
