Was dinged at Fordham a few weeks back, when I asked if I could get specifics on why my application was denied, I was told it was policy not to give out that information. I thought a few people on here said admissions was very candid with them when asked why they were denied?

I was also told I could request reconsideration? Is there anything to this? Or is it the equivalent of just saying "pretty please"?

It's the equivalent of saying "pretty please" if you don't have anything to add. On the other hand, if you improve your application (e.g. improved scores, new work experience) then you might be able to pull it off

Nah, I'll just be at my current job so no change there, and I don't plan on retaking currently. GPA or C&F issues is the likely culprit, so not much I can do. Good luck everyone.

Nice numbers. You'll probably get a good amount.

same here... with a 167/3.5. similar feelings.

167/3.9 here. Got 25K/year. I think the highest they offer (from what I've seen on LSN) is 30K/year.

Does Fordham hand out schols later in the year? Since my acceptance I've heard nothing about any kind of money so I'm wondering if that's all I'm going to get.

It is possible but it kind of depends if they get the numbers they want with the offers they already sent out.

According to this thread for the 2011-2012 cycle there were indeed substantial scholarships handed out post June (90k plus).

Note the dates on those claiming scholarship info:

It is also worth noting that Fordham is indeed up to negotiate:

Just to add a slight correction, last year the maximum was $30k/year, or $90k total
note: Fordham gives out two full rides per year

Do you work for Fordham in any capacity? I'm just curious, because for you to have that info seems pretty strange.

I'm just curious where or how you acquired the information on maximum scholarship amount.

I did a lot of research before deciding whether or not to attend

Yo ajax, just vouching for dingbat saw this pop up on the latest posts link..

I received $30K/year last year and before i ultimately turned it down, i asked for more and was told my the assistant dean that was the most they could possibly give out...

I would hope everyone does. I was just curious where or how you found the information.
