It is first time that I wish I am still waitlisted for the next two weeks. :)
Please Fordham let me in. :D


I am not even on the waitlist. I have NOTHING!!!


I want to see you guys get in! About the screenshot, though: Conan helped us all by deferring!

I know this is awful, but it seriously won't be much longer. They do update the status checker every day during this critical period.


Do you know if they do it throughout the day or is there a certain time every day they update? I just want to stop checking it every 2 minutes.

Whoa~ Didn't mean to offend anybody with the screen shot.
I just posted it with circled dates to show how long the process took for me. That's all. :roll:

I wish I knew the update time. Seriously, guys, Conan is everyone's best friend right now. The PT class is basically FULL. If people do not withdraw, defer, or fail to pay their second seat deposits on June 1st, no one else will be getting in! Fortunately, we know that admitted students do all of these things, so there is still room for hope!

1. You press "Print Screen" button on your keyboard.
2. Open the Microsoft paint
3. Just click "paste" and tada~ you have your screen shot!

I asked for a deferral just for you Opera. =D


Conan, when we are classmates in '10, drinks are on me. Stand by for some very obnoxious digital art!


Heh, all jokings aside, I really think adcoms granted my request only to take you instead!
So I'm the one who owes a drink since I really needed to take this year off.
I really think you are a great addition to the school and will be a huge asset in the long run for Fordham.

Don't be jealous~ You have much better numbers than me so I know you'll be getting the good news soon! :D
Just be patient with Fordham and they'll reward you for it.
I applied semi-early in November and they took 18 weeks to get back to me so give them few more weeks (I know it's easier said than done.).

Conan, I hope you are right! I feel such survivor's guilt... although I was not at all the most deserving candidate, I will be spending every moment of the next three years repaying Dean Brown and Fordham admissions for their faith in me. I intend to give everything I have to this class.

I am glad you were granted your deferral, for reasons that go beyond mere selfishness! :wink: Come and find me when you are a 1L.

This is only too true. My total wait time: 25 weeks. (24 from my complete date.)

That is 175 days from the day I applied.

He is a good guy. He just emailed me back... I really think he feels awful about all this.

I will never stop wishing I had some kind of miraculous LSAT inflating button. I would give it to you in a heartbeat.

Ok, I just spoke to someone at Admissions and she said that the status checker won't be updated until about a week from now, when all the responses will be made. Still frustrated!

Here's hoping that goes for FT also. Odd that they're going to dissolve the waitlist without having finished review apps isn't it, or are they just assuming anyone they haven't answered yet isn't going to want to come at this point anyways?

Hello everyone. I wanted to give hope to some of you out there...yesterday morning, I got a call from Fordham asking me if I was still interested in their PT program--they told me they are running behind and that based on the comments on my application I was most likely going to be accepted if I wanted. I applied late december and have not heard anything since then. 3.3/165 for the record. I already got into my #1 choice (hastings) so I declined. Hope one of you gets that spot.


GOOD LUCK to everyone.

I know people are hearing feedback for PT but anything from the admissions committee for the FT program ?

Are they assuming that if they didn't get back to us until now, we are not interested anymore? That's not right!

I emailed a LOCI to Dean Brown this Tuesday. And he emailed today saying that my chances are not looking too good and the class is full even a few too many. He said he was sorry for the bad news. Sigh. Nothing I can do now, I guess.

Fordham is my first choice. I really love the location.
