I forgot about the breakfast. :oops:

It just seemed weird to me because other ASW's have events till the evening and Fordham's ends at 3pm, which I thought was weird. But perhaps that's better.

That just means we can go out for a champagne brunch after! Nero D'Avola or Harry's Cafe, anyone? :)

For those wondering about Fordham stipends for ASD, I asked and they offered me $250 (their maximum) to travel from the West Coast to New York City for the 1/28 event. Not enough to make the trip completely on the house, but it did pay for my air fare. It's on a reimbursement system, so I probably won't be seeing the cash until 2-4 weeks after the event.

I'll be there! Yes it's official.

And Soda, that's really awesome that they offer a stipend! :)

I hope so! Does anyone else get the sense that Fordham thinks they're ranked a lot higher than they are?

Haha definitely.. Then again, they get a lot of play because they're in Manhattan so it's understandable.

They actually used to be ranked near #20 ...they just dropped because of the PT numbers. & everyone wants to live in Manhattan and it places really well there

Well, they're a regional school. They just happen to be located in the region with the most/best jobs. :D

me too. app went in mid-november. I know we're not the only ones in that position too. I've forced myself to stop checking status, but I can't quite ween myself from TLS checking.

here's hoping we hear something by the end of the week

Yup. On the admitted students' page, click first years, then financial aid. The link is in the middle of a sentence half way down.

They do seem to have website issues, don't they? Even when the page loads there are tons of errors and links that go to the wrong places.
