don't worry Jen i'm sure you're in with that 169

just realized that even though I'm sure you're in with a 169, my checker has updated 3 times.........latest is 1/13. now i'm scared.

Well I guess at the very least we can be sure that they are being very thorough in reviewing each and every applicant's file. Very. Very. Thorough.

Congrats. However, I just want to mention that in general when people post that they were admitted to a certain school, it does us no good unless you post your stats with it!

This, plus at the very least, post your dates (sent, complete, in review).

Also in via email and status checker. 169/3.31. Complete since 11/03.

I have been lurking on this thread since I got the "Under Review" status in early December. Went back to complete, maybe second week of December, and it stayed that way until today. With all the waves of decisions that have come out since then, I was positive I was getting WL, at best, so I'm pretty excited to be in.

Congrats to those that were already accepted!

Quick question for those of you that have already heard back, about how long did it take from the day you submitted until you heard back? I haven't been complete for too too long, but Fordham is one of my top choices, so I'm just trying to gage about how long it will be before I hear.

I just chatted with a family member (who's currently a 2L at a T20). He also applied to Fordham (but chose not to attend). Although he did get his application before Thanksgiving, he didn't receive a decision from them until early April. From what I understand, although Fordham does say it goes on a rolling admissions basis, it also appears that that is not a hard and fast rule.

So, if anyone else out there has been in application complete limbo since early December, don't worry. It's not (necessarily) anything to do with you or your app, per se.

I've been trying to figure this out too. Apparently some people received e-mails right after acceptance with scholarship offers but judging by lsn nobody who has been admitted in January has received scholly offers. I don't know if this means they haven't gotten around to it yet or none of us are getting anything.

I hope that's not the case. I'm above 75th LSAT and probably around median GPA. I'd love to consider Fordham but I probably won't without $$. I hope I find out before their next ASW (day).

I really haven't stalked this thread enough, and am openly admitting to being too lazy so sift through the threads, so I welcome snarkiness if this has been massively covered.

Does everyone go in review at Fordham before getting a decision. I submitted at the beginning of December* and am just relaxing at complete status still.

I was complete --> IR --> back to complete --> Admit.

They have a weird system.

I actually never went UR just had a complete date change 3 times before acceptance. There were a few others like me who said awhile back that they never went UR either.
