Has anyone received more than one complete date on the status checker? I went complete 1/9 and then today 2/8

From Twitter: "#FordhamLaw recognizes that applicants were hoping to use their Feb LSAT. If space is available in our class, we will consider the June LSAT"

Yikes. Hope y'all didn't need the Feb. test on the east coast!

It was during the Financial Aid session that, I think, some students might have been turned off. To be clear, I think that was Fordham's goal. The dean of enrollment basically said we know we don't award a lot of merit schollys. we know that Cardozo does. If School X offered you a free ride and we offered you 10k, feel free to take the free ride, because, we're probably not going to renegotiate. A direct quote, regarding negotiation, was "we don't like to reward the squeaky wheel."


I went into ASD pretty bummed that Fordham doesn't give out a lot of aid. I've been admitted to schools with more money, but Fordham is the only school I applied to in NYC, and I'd like to be in the city. But I actually appreciated how frank they were about aid, and I felt like I at least understood their perspective on it by the end. I got the impression they don't have a ton of cash to throw around and they've decided to spread it out fairly evenly based on numbers, rather then foster a haves and have nots atmosphere. Still have no idea where I'll be in the fall though.

Reading this thread, it seems common to have two complete dates. I was admitted two days after my second complete date, for what it's worth.

I didn't apply for a deferral but my status says "Your Deferral Request has been Granted". Anyone else get this/ know what it means?

Sounds like a clerical error. Just give admissions a call and I'm sure they'll straighten it out for you. This also gives you a reason to call in and chat up the ad comm. Be charming. :)

Status Change 1/24

Still haven't had a status change since January

Congrats! Do you remember when you went complete?

edit: Sorry, see from your previous posts that it was 1/11. I went complete a few days later so I'm hoping for some news before the end of the week.

Received a waitlist email today.

I'm considering whether or not to give up hope.

I've had a similar experience as others with status updates.

My application was under review or complete (can't remember what it said) on 1/7 and it was updated on 2/6 to say my application is complete. No word via email/post/status checker on what decision it is. I'm guessing it'll go complete another time because many had that experience. :?: :?: :?:

Not to jinx myself, but does anyone know when the upcoming ASDs are? I have been searching, but I might be failing at the internet.

I got a call from a 2L at Fordham today congratulating me on my acceptance (received end of Jan.) and asking if I had any questions about the law school. Very friendly and I thought it was a nice touch. Fordham is my #1 right now (assuming no miracles occur); hoping I'll see some of you folks in the fall.

Hi all. I have lurked in this forum and read/skimmed through all of last year's 'cycle' posts. Am wondering if anyone has yet been admitted to the evening division for this cycle. I tried searching this thread but did not see anyone reference getting into PT specifically. I myself applied PT and have been waiting for some time for a decision, having submitted and gone complete last year. If you have applied PT and received a decision, or if you still have yet to receive yours, I am interested in hearing from you.

Numbers I read somewhere on the school website said that the evening program accepted 80 students last year. Is this number accurate? How many students do you suppose apply for PT directly out of the 8000 who applied last year (also a number from their site)?

Got WL'd a few weeks back for the PT program. Anyone know anything about the PT waitlist? Thanks again in advance. Congrats to all those who got in and GL to all applicants.
