Saw this too! Hopefully that actually means they'll start getting to people by the end of May. But also sticker at Fordham isn't pretty with the COL...was waitilisted in early March, no date changes since then.

I have to pay the deposit today. I'm still waiting to hear from Bklyn Law School though. Fordham didn't give me any $. I might have a good shot at getting $ from Bklyn. Say Bklyn is covering most tuition. Is Bklyn still worth it over Fordham? I have been browsing legal jobs / vacancies on the web all night and was scared to see that many of them request "graduates from top 20 schools only", etc. Which screws me if I go to Bklyn because I don't want to hit a ceiling later on in my career. Thanks all for your input! :)

When were you wait-listed? I was wait-listed early March and haven't heard anything yet either. Tomorrow is the first deposit deadline. I am guessing movements will start taking place later this week......


I was wait listed first week of Jan and had a date change in early March and a recent date change in April. I'm hoping offers from the wait list start this week because I'm becoming anxious. I've already made a deposit at BC but I'll withdraw if I'm offered admissions at Fordham.


I submitted everything the second week of January and did not receive a yes, no or waitlist. Anybody else in the same boat? I guess I'm on the de facto waitlist but I'm just confused as to why they could not tell me that.


Yep, submitted end Feb. and haven't heard a peep.

Did you try and negotiate a scholarship with the admissions office at all?

No. I paid the $400 today. :( The Director of Admissions said they were not open to negotiations.

If Brooklyn gives you a significant scholarship, then you should definitely weigh the pros and cons...maybe even try and connect with current students/alumnus. If not, then definitely stay with Fordham. Best of luck!

My date just changed on the status checker for the first time. It says 4/15 now but I still have not received a decision of any kind so idk. Anyone else get a date change recently, without a decision being rendered??

I'm wondering if this is a good sign or bad sign that we know or not at this point.

I submitted by app right around the deadline and was admitted about a week after. Not sure if this is normal, but I'm surprised so many of you are still waiting.
