Thanks for the help?

I found out through status checker but the email followed 5 minutes later.

Gotcha... I have to say, this has kind of made me like Fordham less. Going into the cycle, Fordham was my dream school. Over the past few months I have been admitted to a lot of great schools, including GULC and W&M with 2/3 scholly, but Fordham's still sitting on my app. I have a pretty good reason to want to be in/near NYC, and might choose Fordham over some higher-ranked schools, but alas, I wait...

I got waitlisted...sent in the app at the beginning of January. It'd be tough to consider Fordham at sticker though, not sure how generous they are with scholarships off of the waitlist.

If you don't mind me asking, when did your application go complete? Mine did on January 10th and I have had no change since then.

Complete dates 1/9, 1/30, waitlist today. I thought I had the numbers for an admission, hopefully they won't keep me on the waitlist too long.

If you have the numbers for a scholarship and are let off the WL then you'll most likely end up with a scholarship offer.

They're fairly splitter friendly, though they seem to tend toward higher LSATs when it comes to scholarships. There is never an exact formula, but I'd say as a rough estimate greater than a 166 (168 and above being at a higher frequency) and a 3.6 and above. If either your LSAT or GPA are very high you might slip by with the other being lower. Their scholarships tend to be on the lower end in general though.

My status checker changed to "File Complete" for the second time today (First was 1/5). Any insight to what this means? More waiting for Decision Rendered or what does Fordham post? Thanks for any help you can give!

Hey guys! Quick question... I have been complete since 12/7 (1st and only complete date) and have received no updates since. Is it time to give admissions a call? Or should I just read the writing on the wall :D ?

Happy Birthday, HE!!!!!

Just stopping by to see how people are doing, as I'd heard some decisions would be coming out...
Congrats to the new admits and for those of you still waiting?
I so feel you.
Just something to Keep Hope Alive: my cycle? Went complete 11/15, Admitted 5/10. Never WL'd. Fordham really does take their time, putting together the classes (especially true I think for the Evening program, which is just 80 students.) I vividly remember this exact time in my cycle: I was with friends over Presidents' Day weekend and was just really bummed about how long it was taking, about the admits that had recently gone out... but the wait was totally, completely worth it. :)

I see a couple of you were complete by the end of last year and haven't heard anything: right about now is when I would start sending in LOCIs. Let Dean Brown and the others know that Fordham is what you want, and why.
HANG IN THERE.

Happy Bday HE, :D my bday is tomorrow. Hoping I get an answer this week, but in light of the post above, I applied to PT program I guess it might be wishful thinking that I hear back this month. All I want to know is am I in or out?
