Fordham University

Nov 18, 2010

Fordham University is one of the 28 Jesuit universities in the U.S.  Its beautiful main campus, Rose Hill, is located in the Bronx, while a satellite campus, Lincoln Center, is located in Manhattan. Both campuses are easily accessible via the New York subway or train system.

With slightly under 8,000 undergraduates, Fordham is an NCAA D1 school that has a solid core rooted in liberal arts and sciences, as a foundation for highly respected professional education. The school also takes full advantage of its great location: it offers a BFA in Dance with the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre and is proud of placing a number of its undergrad and graduate business students in lucrative internships on Wall Street. WFUV, their public radio station, affiliated with NPR, offers hands-on experience for aspiring DJs and radio journalists.

The average GPA for last year’s accepted students is 3.7 and the mid-50% SAT and ACT scores are 1810- 2020 and 27-30, respectively. Last year, 49% of their applicants were accepted. They also boast a 92% freshman retention rate and 75% 4-year graduation rate.

Fordham University is a great option for the A/B+ student who prefers a traditional campus and would love to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer.
