34 of your last 36 posts were about Fordham - obsessing much?
Did they ever accept you off the waitlist?
Yes, but I deferred because they didn't offer any aid. I just cannot afford sticker, and I am surprised that so many others can.
Honestly, I am angry at the droves of sheep who pay sticker like it's no big deal, when employment statistics, and cost of living in NYC, clearly show that the cost/benefit of attending Fordham at sticker is not worth it. This unlimited demand that these sheep are providing is keeping the cost of Fordham up, and the availability of aid down.
Because I have not been offered any aid, I will be forced to continue to defer until I build up enough savings, or until Fordham is finally forced to offer more aid because of lack of demand. With my posts I am trying to be an active member in curtailing demand. If applications continue to fall at Fordham, there will be a higher chance of me receiving aid in the next cycle.
Yes, I have a personal stake in fewer people attending Fordham this year, and next, and all the years after that until I finally receive some aid. However, I wouldn't be deferring if I thought Fordham at sticker was a good deal. So what does that say? Either I am wrong, and Fordham at sticker is worth pursuing, or all of you who keep debating with me are wrong. Clearly in this thread, you will gang up and say I am in the wrong.
Regardless, I do wish everyone here the best of luck. Unfortunately, because of the employment statistics reported by Fordham to the ABA, and the cost of full tuition, many of you will end up in debt that you cannot repay. I am sorry. But I am not sorry for voicing my opinion.
