FYI... I believe the financial aid office address on the form is different from the law school address


Thanks! Either way, I'll be around the area tomorrow.

This. Does merit scholarship info come in acceptance email? Acceptance letter? Separate letter after admission has been established?

Thanks!

Anyone know if you can ask to be considered for the evening division if you've been waitlisted?


They allowed this last year.


Now the evening division has been cut in half to only enroll people who are professionals to attend. It was unfair to have a 24 year old with no job to sit in the library for 10 hours going up against someone coming to class for their 9 to 5 job with minimal time to study during the day.


They cut the evening division from 150 or so to 80 because 70 students had no jobs and transferred after the first year. Last year, only four or five students ended up transferring to the day division after this cut.

Well, I do have a full-time job, so that part fits. But if they cut the size of the class that is not good news for me at all.
They didn't allow me to apply again - instead there's a link on the status checker to a form on which you say whether you want to stay on the list and whether you're open to FT, PT or either/both. I followed up with an e-mail explaining that I do work and would like to be considered for PT.

Haha exactly! I was going to say something similar in my post, but I decided it would be in poor taste coming from me. Beggars/choosers, etc. But thanks for saying it for me!

I'm going on 8 weeks since my first complete date and 3 weeks since my last update (I don't remember if it was my first or second one). I'm hoping they didn't forget me because Fordham is one of my top choices, I'd love to call or write a LOCI but I understand they are busy and if they just haven't gotten to me yet or are waiting to make a decision on me for some reason I'd hate to do anything to tip the scales against me, any thoughts?

I submitted at the end of November and got in 2/1, so just be patienttttt. Don't write a LOCI since it's only been 2 months. They get a shit ton of apps


Thanks! I'm trying, I just can't wait to hear haha!

Thanks. Is that your first?

Hearing stories of multiple complete dates makes me sad.

2/15 was my 2nd, and I changed to a 3rd today. Hopefully you get some movement soon!

Okay, so unless they pick up their pace, I have at least another month or so ahead of me. Yeahhh, that should be fun.

Anyway, thanks for the info!

I think the later you submit, the longer it takes for them to get back to you... I submitted early-mid November and got my decision 1 month later.

I think it's arbitrary. I submitted 11/26 and didn't hear back until Monday.

Yeah, definitely makes sense. I'm just impatient. Can you ask them to please crack open my file when you visit? :)
