Have you tried going to my.fordham.edu and hitting the "claim your AccessIT ID" button and then putting in your information?
Because I didn't recieve any email or such prompting me to go there, just read it off the fordham website. If you sent in your registration papers etc., you should be able to claim your log-in.

My point being, should I have heard about loans yet? or should I start selling my body.

I wouldn't worry about that. Dean Brown said at the ASD that the bill would say that it was due in early August, but that it's not actually due until the start of classes, and loans are scheduled to be dispersed about 3 days before the start of classes, if I recall correctly.

Also received tuition bill, also paying sticker, also was not expecting to pay anything until end of August.

Please update the board if Fin. Aid tells confirms that the due date is bogus.

Anyone else get a bill that's just wrong? I called Dean Brown who didn't pick up, also emailed him... I got a bill for the day division instead of night with the wrong amount of merit aid on it...

By the way, anyone else planning to be working 50-60 hours a week while doing nights? Planning to do night all the way through...

Calling admissions today I didn't get anyone to pick up.

my bill says I owe -12k.. Im obviously assuming thats because my loans were in excess of the bill which was 20k by 12k...My question is what do i do now, wait? It says i'm enrolled for 0.0 credit hours. Anyone get a schedule or anything like that?

I got in touch w/ financial aid. In my case, my entrance interview didn't go through; I received a letter about this a few weeks ago, after which I faxed over the confirmation of my entrance interview (which I completed in May, I might add). The guy I talked to at financial aid said its a glitch between the fed govt's website and Fordham's (big surprise). He said that the bills are intended to encourage people to pay as early as possible (those of you that can pay out of pocket, good for you). There are no late fees, and those of us paying through loans, the loans will be dispersed just before the semester starts. In essence, for all intents and purposes, disregard the bill.

Jeez. I guess I'll try to get that in writing from them, because the bill, on the back, says there's a 1.5% late fee. Which is a lot of money when we're talking about 5 figures.

Seems like it, from the checklist on the admitted students site: "By August 22, 2010, finish reading Whose Monet? An Introduction to the American Legal System."

Has anyone moving from out of town secured housing yet? I've begun speaking to brokers and such and the impression I'm getting is that it is going to be extremely difficult to get a studio for $1500 or less anywhere decent on the west side. Where are you guys looking/what resources are you using? Any input from people already living in the city would be great!

Locked my place up via craigslist...

Are you hellbent on having a solo room? Your costs go way down with xtra roomies. I am in the 70s off of columbus ave and I pay 1,100. Of course I have three other roomies but hey, I am going to cherish the fact I can walk to school everyday. You will save ALOT on transport costs.

Look at people who are looking to sublet or rent out xtra rooms- a lot of young students do put ads up (also lots of creepers but you can figure it out).
