Orientation for PT students begins on August 10. For FT students it begins on August 17. I believe classes begin on August 24. I thought PT students started classes on a different date, but another poster looked to the binder and confirmed all classes start on August 24.

I'm pretty sure the binder says. Don't have it with me in the office. I'll post what it says when I get home.

I don't have the binder with me either, but, if I remember correctly, it said that we have a few days of "Legal Process", whatever that means, and some homework.

Alright, the binder doesn't provide much detail.

August 10 - Orientation for 1st year evening students: 5:15-8:30pm

August 17 - Orientation for 1st year day students 9:30am-1:45pm; Orientation activities 2:00pm-5:00pm, Legal Process, 1st year day students

August 24 - Classes begin for all students

I will go out of my mind if this happens to me. Will they think I am crazy if I return to the admissions office in an attempt to collect these items? The dean said my binder was in the mail, but I am experiencing a very large patience fail.


I stopped in at the admissions office to ask for my binder and they gave one to me right away. By the way, I wouldn't really call it a binder. It's more of a.... booklet.

Perfect! I think I'll be up there in the near future, anyway.

Out of curiosity, is anyone else saving their admission letter? I want to preserve mine somehow, when it finally gets here, but framing it might be slightly over the top, even for me.

:D

By "binder" you all mean a spiral book right?

I will seriously be asking my mom to fedex it to me overnight if that happens! When is our orientation, though, and when do classes actually begin? I am still dancing on clouds over this, btw. I don't think I've ever been this happy... about anything!

Damn, I wanted to participate in "orientation activities". Guess us evening students get the shaft. Probably icebreakers and stuff. lol. I wanted to play "two truth's and a lie" :lol:

Haha. I guess I wasn't the only one who didn't get the binder and the official acceptance letter... but that's ok. I still love Fordham. =D

Let's keep this pace going. Have you seen the Fordham Law Youtube videos?

Thanks for the link. The only Fordham video I've seen is the student council campaign ad where they rip Cardozo a new one.

Glory be to the Fordham
and to the students
and to the dean and his followers.
As it was in the beginning
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen??

How do I love Fordham? Let me count the ways.
I love Fordham to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
