Status checker updated today so I'm hoping that means decisions before Thanksgiving!

Was this your first status checker date update, or have you had more?

The date finally changed on my status checker today! I’m guessing that’s their version of UR.

I actually just got in via email about 20 minutes ago but the email did note that this was one of their very first rounds of acceptances (with “very” italicized) so I wouldn’t worry at all if you dont get anything today, hopefully this is the beginning of a wave. I checked the status checker after the email and it was also updated to say I had been admitted but I don’t know if it changed before or after the email. Non-URM, above both 75ths

Applied 10/22, Complete 10/23, first date change 10/27, second change 11/14 (since Fordham doesn’t seem to have an “under review” designation, status has stayed “complete,” dates have just changed)

Ok question for you folks - I got the received email with the status checker. Status checker on the Fordham site says "Your application is complete" but the email said my application will be held until the December LSAT score is available. So is it not complete?

Do you already have another LSAT score? My guess would be that, technically, it's complete (because everything required is available) but that they're holding for the December score as well.

If you *don't* have a previous score, then I have no idea, haha.

I do have another score! But okay, that’s what I guessed. Thank goodness they’re automatically holding apps.

Received an email today stating that they would hold off until February to look at the applicant pool and give me a formal decision. Not sure why I wasn't just waitlisted instead.

Any AA URMs get admitted yet? Can you PM your stats?

Definitely considering applying and wondering what LSAT score would get an AA male admitted with a ~3.9 GPA? Love NYC and would like to remain here if I don't get into NYU/Columbia.

Thanks :)

Good luck to all my fellow TLSers applying!

From what I can gather on mylsn, it appears that a 158 or above gives you a solid shot of getting in. That's a killer GPA, so I imagine you go even go a bit lower.

164/3.0. I have a valid reason for the low GPA, which I wrote an addendum for (Ugrad GPA is 3.7). I expected to be waitlisted, but didn't think it'd take as long as February.
