i applied early in the cycle, but it took no more than a month. A lot of ppl on tls found out within a week, but my merit skolly took longer. Some people were accepted before me, but I recieved my acceptance letter before them.

My point: it varies. I assume since its so late in the game-you should get information soon. I would call them.

I literally had a date change to 5/15 about an hour after posting that... Maybe they were following along, haha. But no telling when a decision will come still. Last school I'm waiting on, so hoping to wrap the cycle up soon.

Thanks-I opted out to stay with my dad and see how it goes for 1L. I live really close by, so hopefully the apt goes to someone who can really use it.

The BBQ and ASD are separate. The BBQ is just a social event they're throwing over the summer, so you could go if you wanted to.

I also recall something about an invite appearing before memorial day but haven't received anything yet; I imagine it will come in soon even though I won't be able to make it.

I also heard about housing last week- but I was told they have no openings, so moves are being made on that front!

Hey guys I'm between Fordham and a Tier II school and was just wondering how are y'all rationalizing Fordham with the possibility of graduating with a lot of debt (for those of you who will take out loans)? I'm genuinely interested because I basically have a full scholarship at my other school and can't seem to understand going to Fordham with the limited scholarship they gave me. Thanks!

I'm talking out of my ass here, but it must be that Fordham students tend to be wealthier than students elsewhere.

Given how tight fordhams merit aid is, most students have to pony up $200K. This should scare the pants off anyone. And if you got into fordham, you probably know there's a 60-70% chance you are not getting biglaw .

So either fordham enrollees are tiger blooded debt fearless weirdos, or they happen to have the money. I think the student body is on average just richer.

Does anyone here have an idea of what type of LSAT score is generally required for half scholarship? GPA in the 3.6-3.8 range and slightly above-average softs. Thanks
