Just withdrew. I've decided on Indiana.

It was quite sad for me to give up Fordham. I've been an admit for the past 9 months; I almost feel like I'm transferring!

You guys would have been great classmates. I wish you all the best of luck. Enjoy NYC for me.

EDIT: My final gift to you all was bumping this to 40 pages!


Sorry to see you leave. Hope everything goes great in Indiana. And wow, you've been admitted for a while now! :shock:

what are the GPA's for different grades? I assume A is 4.0 but what is an A- or B+ ?

Rule 9. Except for pass/fail courses, the standing of students will be indicated by the following letter grades. For the purposes of calculating weighted averages, numerical equivalents will be used for the letter grades as follows:

A+ 4.3
A 4.0
A- 3.7
B+ 3.3
B 3.0
B- 2.7
C+ 2.3
C 2.0
C- 1.7
D 1.0
F 0.0

I don't think I've ever had a P.J. Clarke's burger. Suppose I should correct that.

I love PJ Clarke's, though the original location 10 blocks away from my apartment (55th and 3rd) is better.


i work directly across the street from there

we order lunch from there alot....they also have a pretty awesome buffalo chicken sandwich


not close to fordham but NYU (I went there for undergrad)
= corner cafe
dos caminos
mercbar

Does anyone know what the deal with the cafeteria on the bottom floor Fordham is? Do we get meal plans?

I think Dos Caminos is perhaps the most overrates Mexican place in the city. Its really expensive, and not that tasty.

As for 230 Fifth. I'd be willing to do another meeting there, as long as its nice out, and not a weekend as it can get pretty busy on the roof. The drinks are pretty expensive there though.

Word? So where's a reasonably priced bar near Fordham we can all hang out at?

I don't really make it up to the UWS very often though I have heard Bourbon Street bar is pretty good but its further north at 79th and Amsterdam.

they have this one dish which looks like crepe and half of it is with green sauce and the other half with a brown sauce, NEVER order that! i did that mistake twice! other than that as long as they have good desert and my friends are having fun, every place is good!
i like sitting outside at Dos Cominos on a summer day and not leave until they force me to =)

Haven't gotten the book for legal process. I don't know why it isn't readily available on Amazon (at least the past editions, I know the new one may not have yet been released). You would think they'd sell more copies that way, and that that would be a good thing.

That's weird re the administration. I've gotten someone each time I've called and have had my questions answered. I can try for you if it's nothing personal?

I just got the book from Barrister Books, and received it yesterday, I believe it was the only one they had in stock.

Well I wanted them to mail the required reading to a different address than mine NJ instead of Brooklyn), because I am overseas and in case they cant mail it overseas there is someone who will be flying here on July 18th. I was hoping they'd be able to send it out before the person gets here so I can read it on time. I am not coming back till a day before orientation and the only way i can contact the office is through email! god knows how many times i've emailed them the same exact letter but no response =(
thank you so much for offering to contact them. id really appreciate if you tried calling them for me

I hope we get to find out what books we need to buy early enough to order them from the internet. Need to stretch that living expenses budget...

Shit. On-campus housing is expensive. I'm definitely GA'ing it or sharing an off-campus apartment for 2nd year.

I'm honored. Honored. Seriously, if anyone in this thread makes me start crying again, I'm going to kill all of you!

--ImageRemoved--

EDIT: My roommate and I just found an amazing apartment today. It's on W68th, half a block from the park. If all goes well, and we are approved, everyone has to come over and drink with us!

This is the 1,000th post for Fordham.
