I think you should call Fordham and NYU and advise them of your situation. I think the worst that could happen is that they refuse to inform you of their decision in the immediate future, leaving you in exactly the same position in which you are currently.

NYU/Fordham vs. job prospect
Saturday, September 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

How interested are you in the job you have been offered? You have some cool soft factors that make me think you'll get into Fordham, though NYU is a long shot. If you took the job, could you take it on for a year only and then reapply? Would you want to do this? In the end, you know better than any of use what you want to do with your time. Taking some time before law school to pursue a job you really like isn't a bad idea. In fact, it should help you in most cases. I assume you have to give an answer as to whether you want the position. I think it's a good idea to let your schools know your position, but more so...see how much waiting time you can get from your job. Let them know that you are waiting to hear from schools and that you want to see all your options before you decide. If they give you till April or so you should be fine. Hope this helps, X

I agree with viridianx, not only should you let the schools know about your position, but you could talk to your employer as well. If the new offer is something you would really love to do though, maybe you could even put off law school for a year or two. If anything, the experience will work to your advantage in a future cycle. Good luck!
