Woods, Elle wrote:Hi, I have a question about sending an updated transcript.

My cumulative is 3.43, but this past semester I got a 3.58 (A, A-, B+ B+) including an A- in constitutional law, and the B+ was in my senior seminar on social movements so it's not like an easy class.

Anyway since I'm waitlisted, I definitely am planning on sending an updated transcript to Fordham. I also think it's helpful, because the last 2 semesters (Spring junior year and fall senior year), my GPA was a 3.58, raising my cumulative to 3.45.

should I send it through LSAC, or directly to the admissions office? If I send it to the admissions office, how do I ensure that my L number is on my transcript, since it will be sent through my college? SHould I write a note to them and ask them to print that on the envelope or something?

Thanks!


Good question - and I would actually call the Admissions Office at Fordham and ask them how you should handle it. (They are very sweet, helpful people!)

EDIT: Dammit, H.E.P.! Beating me to the punch - and with the phone number and everything! Gunner. :mrgreen:

You're right, they are very nice :) For future reference, they said they will just look up the L number by name.

As I am going through all my status checkers, I hit Fordham and it won't load for me, nor will any of part of their website. Being anxious has made me perhaps mildly delusional, as my first thought was hopefully their servers are bogged down because they're updating a bunch of statuses....

That was always my hope, too, before receiving my decision, but I think sometimes their site just goes down.

Got this email about an hour ago:

The Fordham Law School website (http://www.law.fordham.edu) is down due to hardware related issues.
The Network Services team is currently working with the support vendor in order to rectify this issue asap.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Love TLS... I also tried my status checker, didn't connect to the site, and this was where I head for answers.

Thanks guys!

I don't know if anyone ever got to the bottom of the Application complete date changing; but I think it may have to do with applying to multiple schools that used the same status checker. I have three schools that use that same status checker and username; and they all have the same complete date, though I sent them at different times. :shock:

If this has already been determined; please disregard this post. :lol:

It's still weird to see 2011 written...

2011 wont officially set in until you've mistakenly written xx/xx/10 and consciously changed '10' to '11' many, many times. :lol:

I updated to 1/4 as well. This is my third complete date. BHD did you update to 1/4 also because I think our first two completion dates were the same or similar?

Yeah, guys - if I recall correctly? None of the status changes/updates ever really meant anything, last year. :|

Yes, you are right. Though I doubt any of this updating means anything at all.

In by e-mail!!! I just got an e-mail from Fordham admission office.

No mention about the financial offer in the e-mail, but they say I will get admission packet by snail mail. Hope there's some $$ offer.
