Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

Not to be discouraging, but... the PT program is now 80 students. If you've been out of school for a while, have a job and plan to continue working, those things could help you... otherwise? :? I have to admit that I think that LSAT is going to hurt you, no matter your GPA. Hope I'm wrong, though - seriously, best of luck.

Congrats I checked my status checker like I'm sure 98% of the board just did. Still on second complete 1/4--->1/11 does everyone have to go through three complete dates?


this is my 3rd complete date and i'm still sitting at complete...

When was your 3rd date, Gotti? Maybe you get the decision like 2-3 weeks after date 3. Though to be honest, I went:

Complete --> UR --> Complete --> Admitted

So there may be no "method" here or anything...

Hi guys, and congrats to the new admits! Eugenie, to answer you, our LRAP does last five years. The idea is that you make five more years of IBR payments, which will be about 10% of your income, so fairly manageable, then your whole debt is forgiven. Right now the program only covers nonprofits, but I know they are hoping to expand it to cover government work as well.

I feel bad for not checking this thread more often, but if you have specific questions, please PM me. :D

Might (or might not) want to take a look at your status checkers.

WL (PT) via checker - Complete 12/6

161, 3.9 - can't say this wasn't expected, but it doesn't feel great :|

Fordham likes GPAs a lot. This actually has a better chance than many, even now, provided you keep them apprised of your interest. I was WL/IN after a good sized wait the cycle before last.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'll probably see what happens with some other schools and then send out the LOCI.

Did your scholarship info come with your admissions packet? Also, how long after you got accepted did you get your packet?
