Maybe?! It just says it's part of the financial applications for Fordham - this form and FAFSA


It's for need-based aid only.
It is not for a merit scholarship

I've filled it out, although I had problems with some of the questions (don't ask)
I did not find that they're asking for a ridiculout amount of stuff, they're asking:
1) what are your needs
2) what are your assets
3) what are you able to raise (including questions re parental support)

The only verification they ask is a complete copy of your (and your parents) tax return, including W2.

They do not ask for your bank account statements, or any other verification. However, they recommend you have that information at hand when you start to prepare the form.

I work in finance and the amount of information/verification we ask of our clients (who are giving us money) is far more rigorous than this.

If you do not think it's worth it, by all means, don't fill out an application for NEED-BASED AID.
Because, well, if you don't think it's worth it, you obviously don't NEED it and should just hope for merit aid.

Trust me, if you need the money, it's worth it.

I wasn't going to fill it out because of the hassle but if all that is needed is tax return forms that doesnt seem any different than the Needaccess application.

Thanks again!


It's pretty much the same thing. Will I be seeing you on the 3rd?

I am on the waitlist. Status checker changed from Your File Has Been Been Waitlisted, to Your File Has Been Waitlisted. Maybe that means I'm one 'been' closer to getting off the list?! That would be the best gift ever.

This is an excellent time to say Fordham admins definitely look on TLS, which has been evidenced in past cycles.

Fordham is my dream school but I was waitlisted in December. Sent an LOCI, updated grades, etc. Is there anything else I can do at this point to increase my chances of admittance, short of visiting the school and speaking with someone in the admissions office?

I didn't even realize it was incorrect. Nonetheless, Fordham is where I want to be. Put myself on the waitlist in early January til the very last day, cuz I'm pretty much willing to wait it out.

So I'm new to the forum. I'm currently wait-listed as of December and now I'm FREAKING out hearing that people are getting pulled up. I just sent in a LOCI, new transcript and resume to update my file. I just got my first acceptance today to Brooklyn but I'm really hoping Fordham pulls me up. I saw one recent acceptance off of the WL, anyone else? Good luck to you all!

Waitlisted in December, status just changed to "Your file has been waitlisted". The extra been just disappeared. I hope a decision is coming soon also.

Last Thursday. I would be really surprised, and unhappy, if they didn't offer me anything
