Not yet, in fact, when I applied about 3 or so weeks ago, I didn't receive anything, and have not received anything since then. I doubt I am going to get in, as my numbers are kind of low (top 18%) but I think I put together a good application package, so who knows? I wish you the best of luck though.

i applied two weeks ago and haven't heard a peep. Was getting nervous - thanks for making this. i'm assuming that since we haven't had any communication, instead of sending a "your file is complete" etc emails, they'll just send us all rejections/acceptances all at once. maybe not though.

From their website:

"Transfer applications are considered during the latter part of July, and applicants will ordinarily receive a decision during the first week of August."

We have a long wait ahead of us friends...

Even though they have the deadline, applications are considered as a pool and not rolling admittance. Plenty of time to get everything into them.

Did you apply through lsac or by mail? LSAC didn't have the option for transfer app even though Fordham said they prefer LSAC. I just printed it off and mailed it.

i was also confused about this, but did the application on LSAC and just indicated I was a transfer student. my application was transmitted so I know they got it (i keep rechecking bc I am the most neurotic) but i still think it's weird that we haven't even received a "thank you for applying" acknowledgment email, right??

Fordham just sent me a status checker, as in the last five minutes.

I spoke with the admission's office yesterday. They said that all applications are incomplete right now and that after a few days, (I am guessing probably after july 4th) they will email any materials still needed to complete the application.

Incomplete here. Has anyone heard about acceptances or rejections yet (I know the website says they don't start reviewing until July but you never know.)

The top right-hand status box shows the following:

Current Status: First Deposit Due
Current Status Date: 7/12/2011
Decision Status: Congratulations you have been admitted!
Decision Status Date: 7/12/2011

Also the notification e-mail stated a deposit is due 7/22/2011 ($600) and contained a FAQ on how to utilize their Career Planning Center Services (I'm assuming for OCI, didn't open/read it yet).

Hope that helps.

Apparently in the past they didn't let transfers do OCI. That'd be a welcomed change.
