Is there a general consensus on double depositing? I will likely be depositing in a couple places to buy myself extra time to decide and negotiate. Is there a down side to that, assuming I'll only be doing one second seat deposit (aka I'd withdraw from any other place by that time)?

For the people who emailed to attempt to negotiate scholarship, who did you send the email to? A specific person or lawfinaid@law.fordham.edu? Thanks!

New to this chain but I am applying as a transfer, any other transfer candidates out there, if so have you heard anything? I applied a few days after the application opened and still silent.

Also a question for the broader group, in my online status checker under the fees section it says "first deposit" and "full deposit" and then 0.00 near both of them but wouldn't it be strange to list those if I am not going to be admitted? Wondering if this is a good sign or if this section is on everyone's status checker.

Thanks all!

I'm waiting to hear for normal JD admission and mine says the same thing. Think it's just like that.

A truly crucial aspect of how much money they give. They would certainly feel more free to give more people $100,000 if they stipulated those students remain in the top 1/3rd.


Most Tier 1 Schools Have No RestrictionsThough, Right? Sorry For Caps, Phone Is AcTing Screwy


I actually think that's not too common.

There was a whole analysis done last year. With one or two exceptions, none of the (old) T30 came with stips, with one or two exceptions all the non-T50 came with stips (some more brutal than others) and in the 30-50 range it's a bit of a mixed bag.

Fordham doesn't have as big an endowment as many other schools and is in one of the most expensive areas of the country. On top of that, they give out a significant amount of need aid relative to peer schools. They were one of the last holdouts in terms of giving out a lot of merit aid. So be it, they'd rather have less superstars. From many perspectives, it makes sense (why buy a 170 when you can get two 168s for the same price?), just not from the perspective of the student who got slighted



My bad. Then I would recommend you go to the school that leaves you as debt-free as possible. Good luck to you guys.

Doesn't LSAC notify schools of which places you've submitted deposits to? I thought I read that somewhere.

I'm pretty sure they send them a master list of people who deposit at multiple places around june so it would be more for the second deposit. The downside is the cost as most of those deposits are non refundable.

Another question - I requested a scholarship increase (through a formal letter) and was denied my request. I kind of want to re-request after the first seat deposit but do you think that would be problematic if I already was denied once? I am sure they will have more money after the first seat deposit...

Re-request. The game starts over again after each seat deposit because money is freed up and your relative value to the median becomes clearer/more urgent. Dunno what your numbers are but judging by your cycle outcomes i'm going to assume u have solid numbers for fordham

I know, just feels so awkward to do that once they have already turned me down previously. so annoying!

Depends what your other options are. In general, I would say probably not, but it might be the best shot compared to your other options.

Woah. Finally went complete today (They got everything from me on 3/7). Does anyone know if that means a decision is imminent?
