I actually was recently admitted off of the wait list and got my admissions packet yesterday. The letter said that they were expecting an incoming class of 320 students, which I think is about 80 fewer than last year's class.
Thanks! It's good to know. It sounds counter-intuitive that with the new building fewer 1L students will be admitted this year. But, of well!![/quote]
I don't think it's really that counter-intuitive because of the job prospects in recent years and a desire on Fordhams part to boost it's spot in the rankings. Especially when you look at Biglaw, the most recent stats have 120 students in 500+ attorney size firms out of 481 kids (25%). While a smaller class size will obviously mean it is harder to be in that top 20-25% of the class, if Fordham thinks they can place close to that 120 number with a smaller class, their ranking/rep will skyrocket. Thoughts?
