Yeah too bad the struggling middle class doesn't get much aid and doesn't really enjoy the privileges of being rich either.


yea, they're just stuck with the privileges of being the middle class.

I received an email acceptance, package a week later

Where are you located? I was accepted 2/1 and the status checker shows the packet was mailed 2/2 but I still haven't received it yet! I'm excited for it! What did it contain?

I haven't checked mail today (I'm at work) so maybe it's there today

I live in ny so it didnt have to go far. But it didnt contain anything special unfortunately, except rainbows and pixie dust!!

haha i like both, so win!

When'd you get in and when did you get the packet? (basically, did it ship the day the status checker said it did?)

I just want all of my decisions. I feel like I took the time to put together an application, they can take the time to say yes or no.

Long-time lurker jumping into the forums here.
Fordham hasn't updated me at all since my file went complete on Jan. 18. Anyone else in the same boat?
I know, I know, I should have applied earlier, but I didn't do well on the October LSAT and had to retake in December (worth the retake - seven-point jump).
I really want to go to Fordham, but I've heard (from an alum) that they can be slow in getting back to you, as in May or so. I'm already in at two of my safetys and they want seat deposits by April 1. I hope I hear back before then.
And this thing about parents' information for financial aid? I'm stunned. I'm a non-traditional student in my 30s who has been financially independent for 15 years, and my parents are retired and in their 70s and 80s. Really? They would want their information? Please.

Oh, good - I'm not alone. OK, let's hope for the best. I toured Fordham last month and the admissions people said they get 9,000 applications, so let's hope they're just backlogged.

I think past the age of 26, they don't ask for parent financial info.

Ah, that's encouraging, thanks. Now I just have to worry that my income from last year's W2/1040 will hurt my aid chances since I'll be working full time up until I start LS. Going from 70K to zero income for three years is going to suck enough as it is. :|

Apparently, Im still on the WL. I thought I withdrew.

I really am considering riding it out and seeing what happens though. I should write a LOCI then.

How do you know you're still on the WL? I emailed them about a date correction and sent an updated transcript, but they never wrote back so:/

I went on the status checker and it still says Im on the waitlist. No sign that I withdrew. I may call to confirm, but Im pretty sure they never processed my withdrawal letter.

So, Ill send in a LOCI tomorrow and see what happens.
