Question: I mailed in a LOCI with an updated transcript last week. Should I e-mail the admissions office/Kathryn Espiritu to see if they've recieved it or e-mail them the materials as a back-up closer to the deposit due date?

Thanks in advance :D

Why would you keep sending letters and transcripts over and over?

Does anyone know what the numerical cut offs are for merit aid this year?

Visited Fordham yesterday and loved it unfortunately! WLed kid over here. I did go to the office of admissions to make sure they got my LOCI and to ask if there was anything else I could do. She said it was pretty much a waiting game at this point, which I think we all knew. There will be some movement in May after the first deposit deadline but the majority of movement will be in June. I'm sure someone else has already said this on the thread but since this just happened yesterday I thought I'd let my fellow WLers know :)
On that note, waiting is KILLING me.

I found out by seeing an email telling me about the admitted student website. Seemed pretty pro.

I'm guessing I might have a voicemail at home? Or does Fordham just not believe in formal acceptance communications?

On status checker, I'm rejected since last week but why haven't I received an email or letter about this? Do they only communicate via snail mail? Or do they just not care enough to tell me directly?!

Nevermind, just saw this at the bottom: "deny letter mailed" what a waste of paper!

For those that are WL'd and considering a june retake to boost their admissions case, are you holding off LSAT registration until right up to deadline (mid may) in hopes that you hear a favorable decision prior?

If you have leverage than by all means ask for more. When were you admitted?? And congrats

Fordham generally doesn't negotiate scholarships at all. Sorry to give the bad news :/

Fordham doesn't consider 'Bozo leverage.
The only things that can be leveraged are LSAT and GPA (got this from the horse's mouth)
Even then, it's unlikely for them to increase by more than $5k, if at all.
What are the stips for your full ride at clown college?

Doesn't mean it's impossible. I was able to negotiate.

I got a lot more $$$ at Emory and W&L... can I use this as any type of leverage?
