Wish I would have known that before I bought my round trip tickets to NYC for Fordham's ASD -- could have thrown in a visit to Boston!

Above both 75ths, wrote the optional essay, AND complete since 9/20. Nothing. Starting to seriously contemplate just withdrawing, BU. For real.

That is so frustrating. You should be in with a good scholarship :? I think alot of people (who they may consider as YP) would actually go there !

On LSN it shows that every single person accepted last year with those numbers was accepted on 1/13 (except one which was later because he/she applied later). Give it some time!

Edit to add: Every single person on LSN, at least.. lol

Edit again: It's been different this year, but I still stand by trying to be patient :) good luck!

Is Cuban URM?

And Gotti, yes, I'd like to stay on the east coast so I don't spend $300+ on plane tickets just to visit my family once every 6 months. :? I'd like to avoid planes whenever possible, actually.

It's like URM-lite. It's not a big boost, but it adds to the percentage of Hispanic students.
