Or, do we just say that cupcakes are, in all situations, awesome?

I'm inclined to pick the latter.

Decidedly the latter.
Always.

I saw this guy at the White House on Sunday. He's a very good singer. The cops were giving him a hard time but I don't know why... he was all by himself and too old to do much harm

While we're on the topic of cupcakes you guys should def. check out Baked By Melissa. She started with a small window shop in SoHo and now has a shop right by Union Square. The cupcakes are bite-sized (like half-dollar sized) and are a buck each (cheaper the more you buy) but they are freaking delicious!

flipflops? that's SO much cooler. it seems like all the student groups give out free baked goods during exams so the loss of specific cupcakes would be minimal.

Im pretty sure Fordham has what is known as a "cupcake curve" in which students that have a cupcake or two before an exam are ranked separately from the rest of the class.

sugar sweet sunshine: best cupcakes in ny and best banana pudding

magnolia is the most overrated "institution" since serendipity 3

if you venture out to brooklyn, baked also has good cake.

cakeman raven for the best red velvet cake. he's out in clinton hill.

if you like french macarons, as i do, bouchon in columbus circle has awesome ones and it's so close to school. it's going to be a problem for me.

end of my fat post.

yeah... I'm able to send emails from it (as in to my aol) but for some reason i can't receive emails...

you can access your email at my.fordham.edu ... log in... click on student mail on the top right.. or if you actually want to see your email address... log in... click on the student tab on the left... click on Student Accounts located under the My Account heading on the left... click the Personal Information tab... and then click View Email Address...



thanks! and agreed, .law would've been better, but oh well.

Yes.

Unless money is not an option and you absolutely don't want to bother looking for a place then a realator is a waste.

You'll get one. We got both.

To those discussing cupcakes: I only got through finals week because Magnolia saw fit to come to 69th and Columbus. I mainlined them and Pellegrino like it was my job.

Also, these were released today, and should show you how first and second year GPAs typically compare:

http://law.fordham.edu/career-planning/1416.htm

Last year's median 1L GPA (what the class of 2011 previously had) was 3.19. Ours was 3.21.

did you have to submit your deposit and everything to get access to that stuff? I got the admitted student login finally but it only gets me to like... one page that's different. the rest has the same information as the non admitted student site.

Thanks Chico for posting the update, I probably would not have noticed for awhile heh.

I look at some of the PDFs and noticed one odd thing, the questionnaire they link to appears to be from last year, either that or they gave the wrong year for the scheduled Family Day event. 'Course we know the website is still a work in progress so I don't think I'll fill that one out quite yet.

Guess it's time to make a trip to Barnes and Noble for that book.

The New York City Harbor boat ride would be loads of fun. Here's hoping they do the same thing this year.
