Fordham Law c/o 2021

Postby VDubbs » Tue Oct 31, 2017 10:17 am

I didn't see a thread for this cycle. Has anyone's application gone into review on the status checker? I submitted 10/2 and no change since going complete.

checking in

applying once I get my December score, but may apply now with my current stats, not sure.

would attend if given a lot of money, but having seen previous cycles I know it's not likely since F is stingy with their $$$

I emailed the admissions office with my stats and asked, they turned down my request for a merit based waiver - said they are only doing need based this cycle. I submitted an application for a need based waiver (just had to fill out a form and attach my W-2 from last year) since I'm in undergrad and have under 10k of taxable income I received a code within two days. Not sure what they're cutoffs for need are though, just know I qualified.

I applied on 10/27 marked received 10/28, haven't been marked complete yet. I met the associate director Kate Cunningham at the Houston forum and she was super sweet!

I'm applying in a week or two when my transcripts are fully updated.

Military combat photographer (6 years), 3.48 GPA, 165 LSAT.

I'm feeling pretty good about acceptance actually. It's one of my top schools, but I'm also applying to several others that I likely have no real shot at. But hey, I got ALL the fee waivers, hehe :)

Checking in. Will apply soon-ish. I think I have a decent shot. 3.34/168 (but retaking in December) Once I finish my personal statement, etc. etc. My cousin goes there currently and got a $180k Big Law offer so that's nice!

My best friend works at Latham and she says there's quite a few Fordham grads there. She says that's pretty true of a lot of the other BigLaw firms so Fordham actually isn't a bad choice if you're shooting for NYC BigLaw. A paralegal at my firm who did Fordham PT just completed his summer associateship at Fried Frank this past summer.

Also - does Fordham not hold apps if we're taking December LSAT?

If anyone’s curious - they do not hold apps according to their website.

Submitted 10/13, application is complete but my current status date changed to 10/27. Don't recall what date it first went complete but I know it went complete well before 10/27. I wonder if it ever actually goes "Under Review" or if the current status date just changes while it remains at "Complete".

I left my December registration off of my app. They still received it through my CAS file and held my app. I had to email them to have them release the hold. This has been consistent for all of my apps so far. Even if I leave my December LSAT registration off on app, they see it through LSAC and place a hold anyway. I have had to email every school I've applied to so far to have them release the hold.

My status checker has remained at complete since mid October, but the status date changed to 11/13. I’m inclined to believe that Fordham doesn’t have an in review designation.

I agree. Just noticed my status date has changed to 11/3. Though for me I think this is due to having them release the hold for the December LSAT. Best of luck to you!

About to send in my app! How many of y'all filled out the Activities addendum/do you think it'll hurt me if I don't? I'm not sure what to add past my resume, although I suppose I could go into more detail than what my resume allows me to do.

Last year the first acceptance wave was around this time (11/15), year before that, a few acceptances on 11/15 and the first "wave" on 11/20. So we'll see :? Fingers crossed for everyone

Depends on what you are looking for (night life, commute time, willingness for roommates etc.). Fordham is in a premium location, so a place in Manhattan is pretty pricey for not a ton of space. There is Graduate Housing avaialable. Some people live in Astoria, Queens, or NJ. Commute is longer, but again, depends on priorities.

I’m originally from NJ and I’m married with a large dog so if I end up at Fordham, I’ll probably live NJ and take the ferry / commute.

There is a also a topic on this in the “Ask A Law Student” Forum titled Fordham Housing. See link below.
