Oops - I guess i got to work on my reading skills. Sorry.
I'm not gonna guess again and embarrass myself further. I will say there used to be an excellent ethiopian restaurant on east 71st street - I wonder if it's still open?

Not trying to guess - just remembering.
My brother lives down the street from an Etruscan restaurant, but the food there is no good.

12/8 WL here. I'm trying to plan a visit to Fordham in the coming weeks. It seems unlikely they will be reevaluating the WL prior to the first deposit date, though I am just speculating. Can someone tell me when the deposit date is? I'd like to visit around that time. Does anyone have any additional advice regarding visiting (meeting with someone in Admissions, what to bring, what to expect, how to prepare, etc.)?

I'm not sure when the deposit deadline is for Fordham, but for some other schools its april 16, so i imagine it can't be too far off. As for the visit itself, you can bring anything you think may be relevant, for example I brought them a copy of my updated transcript, you might have a most recent resume you’d like to give to them. They have an open door policy at the admissions office and are really helpful and friendly to visiting applicants. When I visited they were actually in a meeting, but I explained that I was from Canada and had a flight to catch they met me right away, and were very open and helpful in answering questions.

Yep, the first deposit deadline is April 16th. When I called in and spoke to someone in admissions, I was told that the WLers would not be reviewed again until after 4/16. She was really helpful! :)

Is anyone depositing at other schools and still riding out the fordham waitlist....my more than likely top choice outside of Fordham has a deposit due on 4/15..so I'm thinking I'll probably deposit then take the loss on it if I make it off the waitlist

I will likely be doing some of this. If you can afford to flush $500 or so, it might be worth it depending on your situation.

Umm, I think I have heard of this happening, might be worth asking the school? Anyone else know more about this?

No, you cannot push the deposit date back, but if you miss the deposit date, you're not automatically out. You may lose your spot depending on how long you wait and how bad/well the general response is. Remember, schools send more acceptances than they have places, knowing that many won't come. If their yield is less than normal, you'd have no problem, but if the yield is exceptionally high, you'll be out of luck.
Alternatively, many schools will refund part of your deposit, depending on when you withdraw.
This information should be available on their website, if not in your offer packet.

Thanks....I've been reading through other threads on here where a lot of people have successfully gotten their deposit deadlines extened so I think I am going to email the school laer and see if it will work for me as well

I will say this on the subject: I was deposited at WUSTL, and when I made it off the Fordham WL I had a short deadline so I just deposited here as well.

I never solicited more money from WUSTL, and when they saw I deposited at Fordham they sent me an email and gave me 15k more.

Also, some schools WILL let you extend a deposit deadline. It's no worse than giving you more money to get you to go there if they want your numbers.

Yea...im on the wait list right now :( ....just sent in my LOCI monday. I'm gonna go visit them Friday in hopes it will let someone know I'm serious. I'm in at American with money, but I want to practice in NYC so Fordham is my top choice. If I'm not off the wait-list by American's deadline, I'm gonna have to pay that deposit ($900 kill me now). But best believe I will hightail it back home to NY even if I'm at American orientation in August and get my notification that I'm off the wait-list. Sigh...a girl can dream.

Happy International Woman's Day!! :) The theme this year is about empowering rural women- ending hunger and poverty. The UN started yesterday, but it is still important to note that there are certain areas around the globe...where abuse of women is commonplace, dignity is remorselessly stripped and equality is disregarded.

Do you mean by mail or email? Curious to hear how that went for you and what kind of response you got. I'm WL'd on 12/8 and waiting until after 4/16 sounds devastating.

I emailed admissions recently to ask for merit aid and was denied. I leveraged money from BU and BC and got nothing. Just wondering if it's worth waiting it out a little longer to try again or to just withdraw right now.

I'm surprised you got nothing. You got a good offer from BU - the smart move would be to take it.
