WOW congrats! that is awesome. and confusing. do you see yourself in ithaca for 3 years?


Thanks! I'm really not sure, that's part of the issue. I'm a huge NYC fan, as I think you all know. I'm also worried about finances - Fordham gave me a great package, I know I'm not getting a scholarship at Cornell and I have no idea about their financial aid policies. I have a week to decide - lots of soul searching to come this weekend, I'm sure.


Congrats Dani!!! 200,000+ debt from Cornell is a steep price to pay but if you're comfortable with the debt then go for it. Good luck to you with whatever you decide!

P.S. Stay here with us at Fordham lol

Thanks! You guys (and gals!) are all seriously, seriously awesome. After sleeping on it last night, I think I have to take Cornell. It breaks my heart a little bit that I won't be able to have y'all as classmates (b/c the Fordham threads are seriously the best on TLS), but I just can't pass up the chance to go to a T14. Assuming I don't have a drastic change of heart, I'll be withdrawing next week. I wish you all the greatest luck in the world!

Ah, Dani - makes total sense to me... though I'll be sad not to have you as a classmate!
Congratulations, again. :mrgreen:

Hahaha, I just went to CVS and got passport pictures taken. But it's EXPENSIVE, so you might be better off having a friend taking a picture of you in front of a white wall and making it 2" x 2".


Yeah it looks like I'll just take one out and get it in a 2x2... Just a regular head shot right? Show a little tie and shoulders but not lower than my chest ?


Does anyone know if you can send them a digital shot or do you have to send them physical 2x2 photos?

Looks like this thread could use another new admitted student for fall of 2010. Just thought I'd drop in and say hi as a newcomer.

Wow, I've never seen them accept someone 3 years in advance! You must have quite the app...

Welcome anyway!

I'm pretty sure they have to be physical photos. They're 25 cents to print out at cvs if you take them yourself in front of a white backdrop. Otherwise I think its something like $9.00.

Google "Cvs passport photo discount" and you get them for $6.99 with the print-out coupon. That's what I did. I also didn't wear a tie, I hope I'm not alone in that boat...

Nope. I was reading people talking about it on the previous page and was wondering if I was the only one that skipped the tie, that's all

Does anyone know when we get our Fordham Email address?

(I just added Fordham to the dictionary on my computer so it doesn't show up as an spelling mistake)

related question: did we get Fordham ID numbers? what number are we supposed to write on the back of the passport photos? I feel like i'm missing something obvious...

I'm pretty sure all they asked for us to put on the Passport photos is our name and whether we were day or evening program. I don't believe they have ID numbers and email addresses set up quite yet for us.

from the online viewbook:

Photos
Please send two passport-sized photographs to
the StudentAffairsOffice by June 1, 2010. Please
print your name and FordhamID# on the back.
One photo will be used for your ID card; the
other will be kept with your official student file
and used for our online facebook.

Yeah, that's what the admitted students site said, so that's what I did. Apparently there is conflicting info. Fordham communication FAIL.

Lol....way too soon.....I'd probably wait to get to know my fellow classmates. Spending hours at a time in a study group is different than congregating on the interwebs. Plus, you don't wanna exclude someone who's not on TLS.
