I'm still UR 2/23 and Cardozo has become my top choice. Gahhhh. Some of the decisions on this thread are really throwing me off. I'm hoping hovering at about their median with good softs will help me out here.

I'm still under review 1/3 with pretty solid numbers. Don't sweat it too much!

My opinion the ONLY reason Cardozo isn't ranked higher is because of it being a relatively new school and lack of large alumni base hurts it.

Just got wait listed today for the May program. Has anyone had luck getting off the wait list yet? Or know Cardozo's typical odds of getting off? Sending LOCI in tomorrows mail.

I was waitlisted for Fall and they accepted me for the May program. I'm planning to withdraw soon so hopefully you get in.

Why is there a lull for responses? This is taking too long! It's mid-March!

I was waitlisted for the traditional program, and was placed in review for May. Not sure if I'd attend, but wow, its going to be a close call if they accept me for May. I mean, at this point its under two months. I haven't even read getting to maybe yet! :P

Does anyone know if they mention any scholarship offers during your acceptance call if your getting one?

Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. They did for me. I think there were a couple of people if you scroll up who did not get scholly info on the phone, but did in their letter.

On a different note, has anyone tried negotiating for more cash moneys? If so, what was the outcome?



Tried to negotiate for any money, but got shot down. Was a little surprised to be flat out rejected, seeing the other generous offers out there, but c'est la vie.

Really really liked Cardozo, but can't justify paying sticker for a school when I have a scholarship at a similarly ranked school. Gonna go in a corner and mope a little bit though.

Sorry to hear that :| What did they say/how did you ask? Did you explain you really wanted Cardozo? Good luck at the other school!

No I believe everything is sent via snail mail except when they sometimes call and accept you.

I got notified by e-mail that I was waitlisted. Oh, and the e-mail went straight to my spam folder, so you'll want to check there too.

I just got waitlisted for Fall and asked (as per their email) to be considered for May AND Fall. Is the May program easier to get into? My numbers are pretty much dead on their 25th percentile. Hoping it will be a way to sneak in.

Same here. I believe the numbers for the May program are slightly lower, so give it a shot. Good luck.
