I went complete at 1/14 and haven't had any movement since. I'm getting a bit anxious that this is a bad sign for scholarship money.

I heard from a pretty good source that last year they went realllllly far into their waitlist. Don't give up hope.

Would any of the Accepted/Wait-listed students care to share their numbers and/or relevant experiences?

I've also been complete since 1/17 and am looking for any info I can get...!

I was wait listed on Tuesday. Surprising because I was expecting an outright rejection because my lsat is way below the median.

154/3.98
Non-URM

Did you apply part time or full time? I applied part time and my numbers are similar to yours except my GPA (3.76) is a bit lower. Wonder if I'll get an outright rejection. Did you have amazing softs? I have like no softs. :-\

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 ...


Checking back in about this: I sent over an email and was told that 30k is the highest scholarship they have available right now and will be giving out limited full-tuition scholarships mid-Feb. I told them to let me know if any additional scholarship money becomes available/if there would be any fellowships or need aid I may qualify for. I'll let you guys know if there is any news

I applied for the full time program. I'm planning on retaking in June to try and get off a few waitlists I'm on. Good luck!

I applied part-time because of my LSAT. Hopefully they won't look for work experience. That's awesome you got waitlisted for full time! Best of luck to you!

I had very few softs too. Just some honors societies and good LORs. The only work experience I have is serving at a restaurant for the past 5 years.

Thanks. I'm not actually giving up hope, this is just the second school I've been waitlisted at. It's so anticlimactic.

So I remember reading fordhams policy on negotiating with respect to Cardozo, but what about with respect to peer schools. Are people able to leverage an acceptance or scholarship from a peer school for a scholly at fordham?

Applied around 12/28. It obviously isn't based on date since there are plenty of people who applied earlier but haven't heard back.

I say weird softs because some of them are strong and some of them aren't. I havent heard back from enough schools to determine yet.

Not sure what the official policy is but they will negotiate against a full ride at Cardozo with no stipulations and also against no money from T10s.

Good Luck! Having a high GPA going for you is a good thing. I was rejected from the evening program (161, 3.0). I know they try to emphasize people who work for this program, but I'm not sure if that is actually considered when they get behind close doors.
