On that note, please let me know if it's worth it to attend the next ASD.
I'm very familiar with Fordham and with the general area, so I'm not sure if I'll get anything out of it.

In all honesty, free food and a t-shirt is likely about it. Though if it's not inconvenient for you to go, it's a great place to meet some of your poential future classmates. People seemed to be enjoying themselves from what I saw, while grabbing food and drinks. One of the hosts was dubious and said "This is for admitted students. Are you guys...admitted students?" The answer to that question is yes, poor word choice on her part.

That reminds me of the giraffe that enters a bar eats shoots and leaves
Any aspiring lawyer want to try putting in the missing punctuation?

You will actually touch on this in legislation and regulation when going over scrivener's errors, so The Oxford comma is actually relevant.

I enjoyed it. I think if you're serious about attending you should definitely go to the next one. The interactions with current students and professors could really swing your decision towards Fordham. Fordham has, hands down, one of the best student bodies of all the law schools I've been to. A bunch of people left before the food and drinks reception at the end but I would definitely recommend sticking around for that. My only complaint would be that they ran out of beer too quickly. :P

The LSAT in your profile is 6 pts higher than 165. If that's what you actually got you'll prob get a good chunk of change.

unfortunately, it's not. i choke under pressure big time. plus I have a learning disability but couldn't get LSAC to approve accommodations so I just sacked up and took it. was semi disappointed with the 165 since I was PT higher but what can ya do eh

edit: that was my highest PT, I will fix this once I figure out how to work the profile stuff again.

If a decision is made, are we made aware through email or only through status checker?

Thanks for the help?
