It says wear what you would to class. I'll be in jeans and a shirt.

Some people dressed up for orientation, it was awkward. Definitely just dress how you normally do.

That just reminds me of those kids who would get really, really dressed up for class photos and end up sticking out like a sore thumb. Looking forward to seeing a couple of people in suits. :lol: :lol:

I went UR on the 18th, and today they updated the date. Does that mean I will be getting an answer soon?

I'm sorry, I should have said "complete" instead. I applied to so many schools I get all mixed up

Got the scholarship email today after Friday acceptance. 15K per year, still way too much debt.

FWIW, I already tried negotiating and was denied. Might try again later in the cycle, but I'm not going with only a 10k/yr scholly.

One thing I ask you guys to remember about Fordham is that they don't stipulate their scholarships. So many other schools require you to maintain a certain rank to keep it, but Fordham lets you have the money, guaranteed.

And freaknroll, I'm pretty sure that info is on their website.

Would 50K/year be an accurate amount in your experience?

Discounting room and board, I would say somewhere around 55k.

Thanks, I always wonder how truly accurate those figures are.

For the most part the figures are pretty accurate. There's definitely a lot of room to cut down on costs but don't forget, the cost of living in NYC is pretty damn high.

Very true. Btw, your giants better not fail me, I put 80 on them in Vegas halfway through the season with 20:1 odds.

They'll win. I put $10 on them at the beginning of the season and another $10 when the playoffs started and $10 for every game they've won in the postseason so far. So far I'm up around $500. If they win I get $1000. They'll win.

How long does it usually take to get the scholarship email?
I've been accepted since early january and my LSAT exceeds the 75th percentile.

Should I be getting worried?

The mac & cheese and brownies were pretty delicious. Congrats to all the admitted students, and thanks for enabling me to get free lunch today.

No, they're probably figuring out how much to award you. If you don't hear from them, then just call and ask about it.

And I was looking in on the atrium after class today. All I saw was newbies!!!

Thanks, that makes me feel better. Especially since I just got a very sizable offer from Clown College ('Bozo)
