In what? Need-based? All I got was Federal Direct on top of my mini-scholly.

Nah, merit.. Won't apply for need..


They haven't offered you merit yet? Strange. Well, I hope you get some!

How does Fordham notify of decisions? Or at least how have you all first found out? status checker, email, or the dreaded snail-mail?

do you have to stay for the entire ASD or at what point would it be acceptable to slip out?

Just got a scholarship offer via email and I'm pretty thrilled. Is it standard to email them back thanking them, or what? This is the first time I'm receiving a scholarship offer through email instead of snail mail, so I'm not sure what the standard etiquette is.

Fordham only offered 10k a year. After getting 35k from BU, and being up for aid at Georgetown, I'm withdrawing. Good luck, everyone!

edit: if I would be up for significantly more financial aid, will Fordham give me financial + merit, or only merit?

I'm in the same situation. I would love to hear some suggestions regarding negotiating.

Great, thanks. Who did you address it to?

EDIT: Also, is it worth trying to get them to offer me more? I got a 30k/year offer. While I know that that's at the high end and that they have limited funds, I was still hoping to get a little bit more money, honestly. Problem is I don't have anything to negotiate with. I've only applied to NY schools, and have nothing from NYU/Columbia as of yet, though I do have a full ride from Cardozo. So is negotiating worth it at all at this point?

It doesn't hurt to try, but be aware that they max out at $35k (which is rare)
Cardozo doesn't count - they're not in the same league (I got big bucks from them too)
I'm also in the dark on NYU and Columbia, but I doubt I'll get any money at this stage, to I'm fairly certain I'll end up rooting for the rams

(I'd thank whoever you've been in contact with - in my case it was espiritu)

For those going to the admitted students day tomorrow, is there assigned reading for the Mock class? if so, where can I access it.
-Thanks

Agreed with last poster. Cardozo full ride means nothing to Fordham. If you don't have leverage, don't bother attempting to negotiate. wait until you have leverage. 30k is a big deal congrats!

Nope. But they're gonna ask questions of you as if there was.
Then, when you don't know the answer, everyone will Mock you.

An admitted student sat in on one of my classes the other day. The professor let us know, and then I did him the favor of suggesting he stand up and tell us about himself, and his hopes and dreams. He took it like a champ.
