My status checker just updated as complete with today's date. I went complete for the first time on 1/6. Does Fordham usually do multiple "complete" updates? They're my first choice, really hoping this is a good sign!

Complete today but my app was sent 01/06, I don't know about multiple updates.

I just sent Kathryn my "Why Fordham" statement. I was going to bring it with me next week, when I am visiting the school, to drop it off in person. But, I figured, if they've got my app in their hands right now, then this is the time to get it over to them. Fingers crossed!

Do you guys know what kind of scholarships ($ wise) fordham offers? I did a quick search but couldn't find anything

Edit: just found the site, its 5-25 thousand a year, and they offer full scholarships to several students based on numbers and leadership experience

Another 1/6 complete who just updated to 2/9. Similar numbers to fellow 2-9ers (165, 3.3x).

So, there's about 8 of us 1/6-2/9ers... I've decided I'm taking this as a good omen. :D

We're going to be the last of the week's "trickle," as Kathryn tweeted today.

1/6 to 2/9 complete here. 163/3.77, unique softs, 9 years WE. What's the pattern with the second updates for previous applicants? Is it a universal step in the process, or just for accepted/denied?

Looks like we're all around mid 160's and median GPAs...

Don't know how to read this. I'm fully anticipating a WL or Reject. We'll see.

And are we a mix of PT and FT applicants?

Make that 9! I'm 1/5-2/7 but I vote I'm included too. Same #s range for me (mid 160s/median GPA), what I think are good softs. Hoping to hear something soon...good luck gang!

Does anyone know what Fordham's deferral policy is? I can't seem to find it, though I did read somewhere that they don't allow it except in more extreme cases.

Dude if you're PT you're well above both medians. You're in. You're also at/above both medians for FT.

The question is whether you go to Dozo at 10k (though I think you can even negotiate a bigger deal with them, since you're above both medians) or Fordham PT at sticker (~36?) and work.

If you're not totally set on being a lawyer, as I've read in a previous thread, I would say go for as little debt as possible. That's just me.

Any early Jan complete who have NOT updated this week? I think it could just be a standard thing for all applicants.
