GAIA:

Excuse me. It's extremely relevant to those on the waitlist to know that the school they are waiting for is accepting new applications this late in the game after the application "deadline." It's also relevant to incoming students to know their school is behaving in that manner.

Hotsauce seemed to find it relevant in the Chicago waitlist thread:

"Thats ridiculous that all those schools are still accepting applications. I really hope no one here, especially those of you who might have been waiting from an Early Decision application loses their waitlist admit to a July applicant. Sitting on your hands for 10 months or so of a cycle is horrible."

It's been months since I've turned down Fordham's offer. I still read this thread for the lulz. Is that bad? :lol:

In what manner? Trying to obtain the best student body possible?
I expect anywhere I end up working to do the same. Do you think a law firm would hesitate for even a second to enroll a top student from Yale even if their slots from OCI are filled up?
Do you think a client won't switch to the best defense attorney in the country should s/he suddenly become available?

This is how the real world works - if an exceptional candidate comes around, people make exceptions.
There's no contractual obligation stating Fordham cannot accept applications beyond the deadline. What exactly is the school doing wrong, in your exalted opinion?

Integrity.

And this:

"(2) Do As I Say Not As I Do, Chapter 734. Law schools go on endlessly about “ethics” and “honor codes,” and “professional responsibility,” and the Rule of Law, but are once again willing to fold, spindle and mutilate their own rules with extreme prejudice should they find those rules in any way inconvenient to their own immediate interests. And again, lawyers can get in big trouble when they’re caught doing similar things."

Not in the least. You really don't understand the purpose of this thread.


Ahh. Apologies. You applied to be a student advisor. You must not have been accepted yet.

I hate to say it, but this is probably the lulziest of the serious threads (thanks to an insane amount of derp from not-so-special-after-all snowflakes)

I am a student advisor, but student advisors are NOT paid.

My role is not to convince people to attend Fordham, and regardless I would never do that any way. If ADMITTED AND ATTENDING students need assistance through 1L, that's what I provide, out of the sheer goodness of my heart (and fine, one free burrito a semester).

Pretty sure you get free food. But that's not compensation right?

LOL. So for the hours of assistance I will provide, no two burritos is not compensation. If you want free food in law school, you don't have to volunteer your time to get it.

I jokingly said in here a while back that I got two free lunches out of it, and you know ajax sits there bitterly reading every statement of ours finding ways to show WHAT A SCAM FORDHAM IS.

Fordham bought by loyalty with two burritos, he caught me.

According to this, considering we live in a meritocracy, there is no fault from an integrity standpoint

Having dealt with the ethics of gifts in professional settings, two burritos do not cross the threshold of what is acceptable and does not constitute bribery

It's scandalous if they accept someone after the deadline after telling someone else they are not accepting applications. In fact, at a public school that would be borderline illegal. But you know that right Jen, because you're already in law school.

"(5) Does this behavior raise any potential legal liability? My correspondent who called the schools wonders if at least the public institutions in the group who told him he couldn’t apply, while telling the e-mailer he could, might be violating certain procedural norms to an extent that could be actionable. (There’s a nice little con law hypo)."

Fortunately for Fordham they are private. So they're welcome to preach ethical behavior while acting the opposite.


Scandalous! Scandalous I tell you! I think I will send my withdrawal email as soon as I am done typing this!

Wait, ya know, on second thought let me think this through. Out in the "real world" stuff like this seems to have been the norm through my whole life. If I recall the reason I got the job flying supersonic bombers in the Air Guard is because I heard they were interviewing and showed up without being invited to an interview, ya know, just in case I wanted it more than some of the guys that looked good on paper. Kind of a back door deal if you will. Hmmmm, now that I think about it that is the way a LOT of life works.


I think I will withdraw my withdrawal email thought before it is even sent.

Wily, how the hell are ya man? You know you are welcome here any time!

(Note, Wily made the proper choice as it pertains to him and while I am sure he would like to have had a full ride he is not in here bashing every day and will do more than well at GW; I have no doubts. You will note he does not stalk Fordham like it was his ex-wife.)

Why am I always nice to the people who don't deserve it? Whether or not you think its relevant is SO IRRELEVANT lol. This is TLS policy. Observe it or GTFO.

When a mod gives you a warning, you follow it. It's really quite simple. So because you failed to observe it,
