Have you heard of Hofstra or Fordham? Does either school produce sort of a gut reaction?
These are my two options, and I have to say, I'm not too enthusiastic about either. I'd feel pretty much the same at both schools, so Id greatly appreciate your 2 cents.

I've definitely heard of Hofstra, considering it is ten minutes from my house. I've been to the campus for varius events and it seems nice enough. Unfortunately despite being so close I don't know all that much about it. It is among the better schools on Long Island, I know that much. I also know someone going there for computer science who likes it. I know nearly nothing about Fordham. Sorry, guess I'm not much help on this one...

I have heard of Fordham. It causes a sickening reaction in my gut because of its ultraconservativeness :P
I've only heard of hofstra because I watch Everybody Loves Raymond and it was mentioned in one episode recently. Sorry, can't help much here.

yeah, im from new york, i know fordham, its a pretty good school, and i wouldnt say its ultra conservative, its just a jesuit school, my teacher went there, and he's gay(not an opinion, ive met his signifigant other) and he did fine, good location in the bronx right close to manhattan, as to hofstra ive heard of it but no more info than that

I heard of Fordham through The Godfather.

Hmm... well, I heard Fordham was conservative and not just because it's a jesuit school. Could be mistaken though.

Hofstra gives a lot of merit aid to atract bright Long Island kids and keep them from leaving LI to go to college. It is a respectable school, located in the suburbs but close enough to Manhattan to be able to go there often. I'm not sure what departments they are strong in, but I know one boy who went to medical school after graduating from Hofstra and another who was a very talented theater student.

coming from long island, i've heard at both. they're decent
|By Thedad (Thedad) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 01:47 am: Edit|
I'm in California and have heard of both. My surface impression is that they're decent non-elite schools with Fordham getting the nod for academic quality.

I've heard of Fordham becauses that's where Dr. Hukstable went (on the Cosbt Show). I've heard of Hofstra because my friend's last name is Hofstra and I've read about it in some random college guide book..
|By Buhopeful (Buhopeful) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 05:47 am: Edit|
Dr. Huxtable, on the Cosby Show, went to a fictional university named Hillman, not Fordham.

hofstra doesn't come near fordham as far as academics go.
i've been to hofstra a few times. i think i had a dance recital there when i was five. it's an ok campus. i'm pretty sure most of the students are commuting long islanders.
as far as "decent" goes i'd put fordham at the higher side of "decent" and hofstra nearer to the bottom of "decent."
but that's just my impression.

BUHopeful is right. Plus incase you didn't pick it up or you didn't watch A Different World.
Hillman was an HBCU. Fordham is not.

My mom went to Hoftra. She said its very much a party school, but she worked hard and got a great education there. She was also on full scholarship, and this was back in the '60's.

I'm in NYC, so most of the kids in my class have either applied to Fordham or Hofstra. I know that Fordham's financial aid sucks.
|By That_Girl (That_Girl) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:15 pm: Edit|
Thanks for all the input, guys! >
They both gave me 12k in scholarships and put me in the Honors college, so I'm just going to go by whichever seems to be a better springboard for transferring.
