Hanging at 12/12


In the GTown thread, I recall that the both of us were lagging slightly behind with our status checkers, but then got in a week later than everyone else.

Let's repeat!

It's in NYC and it's the next best thing after NYU and Columbia, but there is such a quality gap between the former two and Fordham (as well as between Fordham and the next NYC school, Yeshiva/Cardozo) that they can pick up a ton of above average people just because they want to be in NYC but maybe can't manage to get into NYU or Columbia, and won't "deign" to go to Cardozo, CUNY or Brooklyn.

I know several people above both 75ths at Fordham who got nothing in terms of merit money. I was significantly above both 75ths and they refused me a fee waiver (elected not to apply).


Fairly certain they don't give fee waivers unless they're need-based. That's how I got one. Also, I agree with your post.

I think Fordham takes a lot of heat on tls. I think it's a good option if you want NY and its not at sticker. I think it's just their marketing that bothers everyone.

Fordham is very stingy which is why it gets a bad rep. It's one of the better non-T14 schools but the price tag makes it an unattractive option

Status just updated from 12/1 to 12/15!!! Complete 10/21. It's funny how I got so excited as to shout out "YES!" just to see some movement on the status checker lol. So, for those of you accepted, how many times did your status update before you got your acceptance??

I just went complete for the first time today, and I'm already impatient...

I only looked back a bit, but it seems most who heard back after their 3rd update got the e-mail the following day. I don't know if thats consistent, I really only paged through a few of the acceptances. If an e-mail doesn't come today or tomorrow, I still don't believe it's quite to the point we'd need to believe it is a ding.

But it would certainly make my day to get in before the weekend.

Do status dates signify anything? Sent 11/1 but due to a late LOR didn't go complete until 12/2, been at there since then. This kinda makes me nervous...

I've gone 11/3--->12/6--->12/13, and I haven't gotten any email yet. Mine is a rather unusual application in terms of both numbers and softs, though, so it's hard to generalize from me about what this could mean for others with similar dates.

Nobody wrote:Moving away from your spouse is insanity.


As someone who may be moving to NYC for law school while my spouse stays in DC, and who does not consider myself or my husband to be insane, this is a bit of an unfair statement. But the choice to live in different cities a very serious decision and depends on the individual couple's situation. For us, keeping my husband's biglaw job is very important both for paying off his law school debt as well as for the substance of the work--he has the best job at the best firm at this point in his career in his particular, specialized field. Also, we have done long distance before on the I-95/Amtrak corridor and we know what to expect, so it is less of a scary unknown.

My point is just that individual circumstances vary, and it's important not to be too judgmental about the very personal decisions of others. If there are other folks like cogito and me who are faced with the long-distance-marriage question, I'd would be happy to chat via PM or in a new thread, perhaps.

Agreed. Thanks for the input CQ. Sorry the thread got so real last night. I suppose the crazy TLS is a lot more fun than real TLS, but this is a pretty big part of my own cycle, and it's similar for at least a few others, so I do appreciate you guys weighing in. Everyone sees this whole process a bit differently.

CQ, would you just be in NYC for the week and try to get to DC most weekends or??


I would probably try to get to DC most weekends because I'd be more location flexible--my husband is in the office every Saturday and often on Sundays. Yay, biglaw! But the fact is between my study habits and his work schedule, we wouldn't be spending a typical married couple's amount of time together even if I stay in DC.

Speaking only for myself, I actually find that marriage gives me a long-term view of our relationship such that the next three years of possible distance do not loom as large as, say, the 50-60 years we'll have together once it's over.

It's been 2 weeks since 12/2. Some/most EA applicants have waited a month for our first update. Nerves just yet do you no good.
