Awesome! What nights are good for people? I have plans next Friday, but Saturday works. I can do weeknights too, If I move my schedule around. I just want to go to a decent lounge with good vodka and champagne. This is a celebration and should be treated as such! I have several ideas (event planning and PR ftw), but it really will come down to how many people can come and how much we want to spend.


Thoughts or ideas? We can move this to the lounge If people don't want to clutter this thread.

Happy hour is great! Does this mean we want a weeknight instead of a Saturday? Would next Wednesday or Thursday (assuming happy hour) work, or do we need more time to plan this?


In other news.......
It finally came! Mine had a hand written note from Dean Brown at the bottom. I started crying when I read it. Now that I have the letter it feels so official.


I'm reading the little binder as I type this. I seriously wish it was 1905. When Fordham Law opened that year, tuition was $100 a year. Oh wait, screw that. Women weren't admitted until 1918.

I think a lil later seems more feasible in terms of planning. How about Tuesday, May 26th, the day after memorial day?

That works for me! I was thinking memorial day was the next weekend...

May 26th consensus? Right after work, or slightly later?

There is an issue of fairly large significance to our entering class, which I discovered today. I believe we have USNews to thank for this development: Fordham just cut the part time program by 25%. There were 160 PT students in last year's entering class. This year, there will be 120.

I hope everyone will read this thread and leave comments. This effects all of us, because of the potential loss of revenue to the school:

Did I read that previous post right, that they are considering increasing merit awards, like making existing ones bigger?

May 26th is on a roll! For those outside New York, we'll do it again soon! I can put this together If people would like me to. Event planning used to be a big part of my job. I seriously can't wait to meet my classmates! <3

Not yet! Any suggestions? I'm down for anything that isn't a total dive. Once we get a head count, we'll know what will work.

OK, sounds good to me. I just got back to the NY area so I can finally concentrate again on meeting Fordham people!

I am up for any of the above. I live just south of Union Square, and there are about four million bars and lounges in my neighborhood. What works for everyone else?

I seriously can't wait to meet you guys. Waiting for August is impossibly hard....

I'd be happy to. So far I think we have seven people in. If no one has preferences or suggestions, I'll give this some thought and post my ideas.
