How long does it generally take from "Complete" to be "UR"?

I submitted 11/29

Completed since 11/30

Other schools I applied to changed from "complete" to "UR" in a day or so..

I am getting concerned cuz Fordham is my top priority

Many people seem to be getting their decision.

For those of you who got the decision, how long did it take to become "UR" from "Complete"??

And would you mind sharing your numbers if you got waitlisted or accepted??

Keep waiting friend. You JUST submitted.

I submitted 10/29, went complete 11/3, went UR 12/2, went back to complete yesterday (but date stayed at 12/2) and got the WL status checker today.

Do you think Fordham has a higher standard this year that they did last year??

No idea. Schools try to up their medians every year so maybe the standards have gone up a bit. Who knows.

Just take it easy and you'll find out soon enough. Hakuna Matata.

I was WL'ed with 3.99/162. I just kind of had an epiphany about trying for PT instead. Anyone know how to go about this? Do I just email or call admissions? The Dean?

Now I'm worried that those of use that went complete again from UR will be WL. I am still currently "complete."

Please Fordham, don't WL or reject me!!

BTW I just found the answer to my own question:
Can I apply to both the day and evening divisions at the same time? No, you can only apply to one division at a time. If your original application is declined, you may submit a written request to be reconsidered for the other division.

How does the application reconsideration process work? If you have received an unfavorable decision on your application, you can request reconsideration of your application. Please submit your request in writing via lawadmissions@law.fordham.edu and indicate the division to which you would like to be reconsidered. The reconsideration process will begin in June.


JUNE?!?! Really kicking myself for not applying to the PT program instead....

Maybe they're doing different decisions in batches for all the people that UR--> complete happened to. As in the WLs came out today, tomorrow may be acceptances or dings, etc.

I received no email, happened to look up my status check, and found I got waitlisted. 162 LSAT and 3.85 GPA.

Still complete on mine, and I have very similar numbers (your GPA is higher)... so I'm a lock... to be waitlisted, ya?

I was WL'ed with 3.6/162 PT, so it might not have helped too much...and I would think they accept a greater amount off the waitlist FT

There's a pretty big difference between a 3.6 and a 3.99 though, no?

A VERY big difference, I would say. 3.99 is almost a 4.0 (this will always be above 75%ile for EVERY schools' GPA) but 3.6 isn't even 25%ile for some schools (admittedly very highly ranked schools).

I'd say you have a notably better chance. Our GPAs are practically identical, and your all important LSAT score is 2 points higher. I'd still have hope of an admit if I were you. Goodluck!

Very true. I just thought I'd throw that in there so OP wasn't pulling her hair out wishing that she'd applied PT.

If FT doesn't work out, I might apply PT. But waiting till after JUNE to get an admission/WL/rejection is just plain torture.

But I don't WANT PT, I want FT! Please accept me, Fordham!
