Congrats! You'll get an email in the next day or so with the login info to the admitted students site. By for now, the Fordham Law site is down. Just keep checking it. :D

Mine came via email 6 days after the acceptance email. Can't remember when I got the snail mail, but no scholarship was mentioned in it.

Congrats to all the new admits!

Yeah email (along with ASW information). From there, you can request to receive it in snail mail form or just take the attachment.

Do you think Fordham is at all likely to negotiate scholarships given how stingy they usually are? I'm starting to negotiate at some other schools and would really like to see if I can up their offer. Right now I don't have any higher offers but I'm looking at $25,000/yr at Notre Dame (where COL is significantly lower), a scholarship package at Texas that would make COA ~$10,000 cheaper/yr, and an almost equivalent scholarship at GW. Any chance? and any advice as to how to go about the negotiation process, I'm seriously lost ...

Hey guys. I got accepted today! Pretty happy because I had low GPA. (3.2) and my LSAT was median (165). I wrote a really good personal statement, methinks. How big was the freshman 2011 class?

It's the first year of law school. They are not considered freshman because it is a graduate/professional degree.

Officially withdrew this morning. I don't like sitting on an acceptance once I know for sure I'm not going there. Best of luck to those still waiting and those on the waitlist.

UVA but I'm sticking around the cycle to see if the money is better elsewhere and what else works out.

Hey guys I just wanted to post about Fordham's new law school building to be complete by fall 2014 if you guys did not know about it. As we all know Fordham's current building is well....old and outdated and cramped. This new building should help significantly with that and includes a new library. Here is a link to some information on the project and progress pictures that are pretty incredible looking.
