I'm currently on HOLD at Fordham with a decision coming in February - do most HOLDs get into or are otherwise WL / Rejected? I plan to visit, although it will only be a self-guided tour... As a future military veteran, my GI Bill covers all costs... I also like the job outcomes considering.... And this document is the most accurate IMO:

Willing to bet it depends on the year, the applications they’ve gotten by February, the number of those that have accepted their offers or admission etc.

Awesome thank you for the answer - I plan on visiting the school in a week or so for a self guided tour, etc.

hey, do you have a way of getting a Property outline for Professor Sheila Foster? She used to teach at Fordham, just came to Gtown, and we don't have any outlines for her class!

Would be greatly appreciated :D

ETA: Past exams would be awesome too! Section 5 would love y'all forever

What's the community like at Fordham? I just got warned over brunch this weekend that Fordham gets super gunnery and cut-throat since there's more people shooting for the same/less spots.

Hi. I have a former Fordham Prof for property this semester, Shelia Foster, and I'm looking for old exams. Do you guys have an old exam bank, and if so, any chance I could get my hands on some of her work? Thanks.

Could not be further from my experience. My entire section shares outlines/supplements/tips they've received from upperclassmen. We have our resident asshole (1 out of 90), but everyone else is great.

I agree with u/ss45. Everyone in my section will go out of their way to help students struggling to understand the material. We share outlines. We share supplements. We share what upperclassmen have told us about professors/exams. We definitely have a couple of assholes in our section but that’s maybe 3/90.
