Hi! Sorry all, I should have seen this MUCH earlier but I've been juggling multiple jobs this summer and have let my TLS monitoring slide.
I was invited to participate in AEP last year and I'm actually working as a T.A. for the program this year.
I BELIEVE that this year, something like 150 of the incoming students were invited (I can get the exact number).
There are 90-something enrolled.
Students are invited because there is something in their application/record that says they might benefit from a head start on school: either you've been out of school for a while, your undergrad experience is not something that would have prepared you for law school (maybe you were an art major, etc), you are the first in your family to go to grad school, English isn't your first language - anything like that. (Yes, catagories that are traditionally "under-represented") This year, many other students heard about the program, applied and were put on a wait list; I can find out how many were admitted off the list.
If any of you have specific questions feel free to post them here (I'm gonna flag this thread so I can keep on top of this) or PM me: I'm happy to answer anything I can and clear up any misconceptions!
Also, while we're on this? CAN YOU BELIEVE YOU'RE ALMOST 1LS?????? Looking forward to welcoming you guys to Fordham.
edit: Oooo! So Zara, Gotti, Blacklawboss .... you better PM me so I know who you are! lol
