Hi guys. I just recently gave up my spot, so I hope one of you on the waitlist will get it. Good luck everyone!

I got into Fordham with money off the WL, as have other people in the past and even just recently this year.

Honestly, it is unlikely, but there's no reason not to ask about need based aid. They never once "pointed me to loans," when I was negotiating scholarship money with them.

Unless they changed things, we had to physically submit a picture last year. They have that online upload situation, but in the fine print of some of our law school paperwork it said you needed a hard copy.

If it still says "passport photo," don't mistakenly take this to mean you can't smile (as many people I know did); it's simply referencing size. This picture is going to be just about the entire front of your school ID (ie excessively large) and it will also be on a school wide "face book" accessible through the Fordham website, just a heads up.

Chances are if you are still on the wait list you are not getting money. 7/6 is registration day maybe you all will get some w/l movement.

How stoked are my fellow colleagues to test their moot court skills. I'm so excited I might have to go argue with randoms for fun.

I thought I read that there was a change and we HAD to upload a file now instead but I will reread it and see.

Now, a serious question, is the 2L ID picture/online photo different than the one we use for 1L? Yes, I look a LOT different depending on how I do my hair and or beard but if it will be on my ID next year for OCI it will be nothing but professional but if I can get a new one next year, well, I might have a little more fun. :D

If you're still interested, tell them you're still interested (just don't say you will attend no matter what). If you're no longer interested, tell them you're no longer interested.
Be honest.

Yeah, too many threads to troll that have no impact on my life to waste time on logistics for enrollment.

Ahhhh, but it IS the attention to detail or lack there of that can get you or cost you a job.

There are all these JC looks to choose from, this crap is important!

thank you so much! i just got it a couple hours ago. yes, i did get the 'no merit money' email. trying to figure out what to do because i have 25k from brooklyn. blargh. right now, i'm just enjoying the shock and amazement of having gotten off the waitlist.

i did the june LSAT and got a higher score, so i think it's largely because of that...
