I tried with a Cornell offer but they didn't budge. Said that they already offered the most they give, with the exception of two or three students who receive more.

Does anyone know what the latest date a decision is made? I've received scholarship offers from others that have to be accepted by April 17, so Fordhams decision won't come later than that, right?

Is this the on-campus housing that is semi-shared with undergrads? The one that they say is granted based on the distance of your permanent residence from the school?

Does anybody know if Fordham will send packets/envelops to our homes if we were accepted? Also I've been apartment searching, does anybody know the best way too find reasonable apartments in or near Fordham? I don't mind commuting but Zillow seems to not be the best option. Any New Yorkers who can give any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I've been looking on the app Street Easy. When I do start looking at apartments (I feel like it's still a bit too early) I'll probably just go through that. I know people who have rented through it and it worked out fine.

On an unrelated topic, what's the parking situation like?

Lincoln Center is literally across the street, as is their huge garage. It's expensive though. Not sure if they have a monthly deal. There's also a garage a few blocks away (one or two blocks west and maybe 1 block north) that I know a lot of Fordham people use. I'm sure if you ask in the accepted students FB group someone will know where most commuters park!

Its not saying much but:

Lincoln Center Campus Parking
Manhattan, NY
Daily parking for students, faculty, administrators, staff, or visitors to our Lincoln Center campus is currently available at any of the following locations by having your parking ticket validated at the Lowenstein Public Safety desk for preferential rates.

I am hoping the discount is significant, because some days I will commute from my house and other days i'll be at my apt in the city.

You'd have to be out of your mind to try to regularly commute into NYC by car. Cheaper to just take the metro north.

Depending on how much you can get monthly parking for in the city, this isn't necessarily true. Depending on the distance from your house to the school, taking the train could cost you $20 train, at least $10 parking at train station, subway fare, etc. Probably be quicker and more convenient to commute by car and likely cheaper too.

Keep in mind that you also have to pay for gas, maintenance, tolls (Manhattan is an island), and the time it takes to sit in traffic.

...no...taking the train is significantly cheaper/convenient hands down. If you're planning on showing up to class more than 2 times per week, then you should most definitely get an unlimited metrocard ~$115/month. This will also let you go out on weekends, etc. You can also get an unlimited LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) if you plan on living in Queens or even deeper into Long Island (although I would advise against this). Parking is usually free at the station. A bunch of people live in Manhattan (more affordable options just uptown near Columbia), Brookly, or Astoria (Queens - one or two subway stops from Manhattan). The subway system in NYC is actually surprisingly efficient (especially compared to 3rd world DC Metro). My friend commutes to Manhattan from Astoria, Queens and usually has a 30 min commute.

Tolls to Manhattan is extremely expensive, ranging from $8.50 - $17 ONE WAY. That's already more than your daily train/subway costs and that's not including the price for parking which is also ridiculous. Not sure about where Fordham is but prices for garages near NYU are like $25/day. Parking near Fordham is definitely more expensive. Don't even think about doing roadside parking because you won't ever get one.

Edit: Completely forgot about gas. But yeah, you get the point.

^

To Piggy back onto that, you can also get a monthly metro north pass if you plan on living in Westchester or CT, which can range from 120-300 per month (you're probably not going to be commuting from Poughkeepsie so it would be on the lower end). Even with all of that, I'm just not seeing any scenario in which driving into the city every day is either easier or cheaper than commuting.

If you're good with time and enjoy long walks, you can get into Penn Station/Grand Central and just walk to Lincoln Center, it would save you the $115/month, but don't do this unless you really really like walking.
