During this long wait until decisions, my D and I have been taking another look at some of the schools she applied to but didn’t visit. Fordham LC/Gabelli Honors (Global Business/Finance concentration) is definitely the one that we both have the most questions about.
In terms of LC itself, I keep hearing mixed reviews. Can anyone share more about the social life at LC? We know it’s small and not known for having tons of school spirit or parties, but I’d love to hear more about the students. She wants to be surrounded by friendly, bright, motivated peers who take school seriously, but are not overly competitive. Would LC be a likely fit?
She applied because of the Honor’s program, but she feels it might be “light” in terms of math/statistics. Is this a valid concern? How rigorous and well-regarded is the program? Quality of profs/classes? Internships? Career/job placement?
The Global Business program seems to have a more pre-prof vibe than the typical liberal arts program. Is this an accurate perception?
I look forward to hearing your experiences with LC and/or Global Business.
