I'm taking a tour next Monday. So want to get off the WL :(


Our guide is talking about Fordham's great sense of community. Trying to stifle my giggles.

Are you on your phone on TLS? That's kind of BA.

I would email it to Espiritu, but address it to the admissions staff.

I'm not saying it's impossible, just that judging from the website and the people I know its not very common. I imagine some of those 30k/yr people may have negotiated up from 25k, since it seems 5k is usually the schools give in negotiating situations.


I was lucky enough to get 30k/yr. I'm most likely w/drawing which may open up some more money for others and get someone off the waitlist. good luck everyone.


Do you think that they would budge up to 35 if you already were offered 30k/year? :lol: :mrgreen: #dreamer

I don't think they'd likely bump it up to 35 because they don't have a ton of money and they need many people with great numbers over a few people with really great numbers. 5k/yr is enough to sway some people to Fordham in and of itself. That being said, I highly recommend you try!

Possibly a dumb question... but why does Fordham not have a ton of money? It seems like many peer schools charge similar tuition and are much more generous with scholarship money. Not sure I would get any money at Fordham, but just curious about this.

And I would assume their endowment is decent?

Thanks... Yeah.. I don't wanna sound too greedy, especially because I'm in a good situation where I would be able to commute from home, but the more money the better and I would rather graduate with less debt. I am not sure how I would negotiate that because my best offer other than that was 25k/year from GW

My impression has always been that they have NYC as the draw that peer schools lack. Don't want to pay full freight to attend our school? Fine, there are a line of others who do. They also have the 'we place more in biglaw by number than anyone else' thing. Of course percentage-wise, they place about the same.

It's supposed to be complete in 2014. Which means I'll get to spend my 4th year there! Evening Division FTW!

Just back from getting my ass handed to me in Bikram Yoga to see my mailbox happily full with an acceptance from Fordham! Nice reward

Admitted. I'd seen zero movement since the first time my app went complete. Crazy.

I'm sure someone has asked and this has been answered, but could someone save me time and just let me know if applications ever go "under review" or is it just "complete" with date updates until a decision is made?

thanks!
