Sorry if I missed it in previous comments, but did Fordham offer you any money yet? Or are you still waiting for any? If not, I would email the professor who called you to say that you really appreciated his call and Fordham is your top choice but you can't justify the financial commitment without scholarship.. I've heard a lot of stories about professors then going back to financial aid and boom, scholly.


Thank you so much. I just tried him back and left a msg. I am writing the admissions office now. They offered $10K. I will try to negotiate with Fordham now, we'll see. I do really really want Fordham. Even if Fordham gives me $30K, I'll totally take it.


Read back in the forum- unlikely that you'll get any significant increase, or any increase. Fordham doesn't play ball very frequently.


I know - just a slight increase though would tilt the balance... I sent the email to K. Espiritu. Let's see what they say. I am pretty "attached" to Fordham though. I'd take Fordham over Bklyn Law in a heart-bit. I'll keep everyone posted. Thanks all!

I didn't get a waitlist update email. Do you think everyone on the waitlist was supposed to get it? Makes me nervous.

Didn't get it either :/. Did you send any LOCIs? I sent 2 since march so I was thinking that may be why but idk.

this is a good point - its possible that they didnt send it to anyone who sent LOCI because they know youre still interested. the email said "If you are still interested in enrolling at Fordham Law or if you have already made concrete plans for the fall, please let me know at your earliest convenience!" - so maybe it was trivial to send to people who have already let them know. so I wouldn't worry about a "hidden meaning" just yet.

anyone who sent an LOCI also get the email update?

Fordham usually sends out a few rounds of the the "are you still interested" emails to the waitlisters. If you didn't get one this round, don't despair. It doesn't mean you won't get one next round. :)

Question - I sent my LOCI by mail (from upperwest side NYC mailbox) on Friday. Will it show on my the application status checker or do I have to call to confirm receipt?

It's OK. They will get it so you don't have to over-reach...

Do admissions decisions typically follow the second status date change?

Not in my case. My second status date change was 3/19, still no decision.
