Also, for those of you who received calls, did anyone not receive merit aid? Just wondering if the issue of merit aid is the difference between a call and just a mailer.

Never received a call, full ride mailed to me, status checker updated with "decision sent" before I received it.

Interesting that they call admits with less scholly but won't call someone who's getting a full ride

Yeah, I'm a little confused but whatever. I received my admit packet today, with merit aid, so I think there's just some inconsistency.

It was annoying. But also, I'm a full time student with two jobs on the other side of the country.

Fordham does present a markedly better shot at big law...a 28% shot at Fordham versus a 14% shot at Cardozo. You have double the chances at Fordham. But you are correct in your observation that Fordham is not worth sticker since a 28% shot at big law is not much of a shot. Why would you go 250K in the hole for a 28% chance of a good outcome? Your instincts to make Cardozo as cheap as possible is wise.

I got in already with $$$ and somebody from the admissions office just called me (an alum of my UG, no less) and left a message seeing if I had any questions. I guess that is nice of them but I had a heart attack thinking it was NYU or something.

I had literally the same exact reaction. I thought it was a NYC school I haven't heard from yet. It's a good thing I didn't pick up because I think the person on the other line would've sensed my disappointment.

I googled the number while it was still ringing and saw that is was Cardozo so I didn't answer. I'm at work and I don't want to awkwardly talk to some stranger on the phone! So antisocial.

Fordham won't match Cardozo but if you have the guaranteed full ride from Cardozo Fordham will give you something if you negotiate.

Got the call today. Full ride guaranteed (whatever that means? is it really no-stips or is it one of Cardozo's top 80% of the class deal?). So don't know about that full ride no call theory...

168/4.0
UR 1/10 or something like that.

Also waiting. This may be a coincidence, but I have noticed the people already accepted for may have very good numbers, so maybe they're pulling those applications first.

why wouldn't they?

And again, the may program is not a PT program. I see this here all the time. It is a FT prog that starts in may. The only difference between it and the fall start is the beginning date. That's it.

From Cardozo's website:
"Our part-time program is a day program and begins in May. It is part time the first year and full time the last two years."

And in previous years they did not give any merit $$$ to May starters.
