Also, was anyone else super impressed with their admitted student's handbook? I used to work in public mailings/bindings so I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to this issue, but WOW!. The spiral binding was sturdy but facilitated turning the page. The index was so easy to use and all the relevant information was in one spot. I'm comparing this with the materials I got from Michigan and Duke and they were much worse. They came at all different times, mostly were junk, and it was hard to find the relevant info.


I came.


:lol:

Hey-O- did you request the guide? i was admitted in march and never got one... all i got today was my $0 need-based award letter.


Yes, but I didn't know I was requesting anything special. They never sent me anything - not an admission letter, not an award letter - nothing. Just an email. So I asked them to send me something.

Fordham = low budget. But it's still an incredibly awesome school, and they invest where it really counts: career opportunities.

not sure, but would definitely like to learn more. it kind of sounds like it will be a clinic, right? or just classes? either way, very cool.

Cool! Right now it seems like it's an "institute", i.e. a formal framework for conducting research, hosting events, etc., but I imagine that will lead to more classes and maybe even a clinic, who knows! I did happen to see the course in Fashion Law on the tentative Spring 2011 schedule (http://law.fordham.edu/registrar/17875.htm), so it looks like Fordham is definitely investing in this area. Not exactly my cup of tea, but it definitely seems like a great idea to leverage Fordham's its NYC location to be a leader in this field...

thanks! it's nice to see the elective offerings so far in advance, even if Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 classes don't apply to us..i'm just wondering why they don't have the Fall 2010 schedule up?

they did last week or the week before, but it's gone now. weird huh? they're just drafts anyway, though, and like you said, we don't get to pick classes until 2L...

I received the Financial Aid guidebook today in the mail. They said they will let us know 2010-2011 costs in 'late spring.' I received my preliminary award over a month and a half ago, and sent in my tax returns fairly promptly but haven't heard a thing since. Anyone receive a final award yet?

Anyone know what's going on with the barbeque that the asw says is on 6/24? This sounds like a great opportunity to bar crawl!

+1...If I can get off work and travel up from DC, I'd love to go since I missed the previous ASDs. I've spent enough time checking out NYC bars online, it will be nice to actually start trying them.

not lucky enough to have gotten an award, but does the guidebook go into any kind of detail about the new loan BS? I hope mine is coming soon, I'm starting to get nervous abt that stuff over here

We moved to direct loans this year. It's actually much less paperwork, and I am told the lending criteria are less stringent. Finaid will send you guys instructions over the summer, I am guessing.
