Me too on the sympathy, that is really a horrible loss... especially to happen during the roller coaster college years. :|
I am in a similar boat with my gpa from UG Yale. Had to take some time off. Was an ED of a nonprofit for a year as an undergrad and some other personal issues came up that killed the gpa. I don't think lsat of 170 is really enough to make me a splitter. If i don't get off the waitlist, I will retake with more prep. Good thing is that this week my boss agreed to keep me on with more limited hours if I get into PT (i originally applied for ft). With a 10% salary reduction. So I've still definitely got my fingers crossed. I think there are going to be really cool and interesting/challenging people in the PT program. My background is as an organizer. I've also done some policy work.



:shock: A 170 LSAT certainly inducts you into splitterdom. That's a great score (almost) anywhere! Congrats! and good luck to you.

I checked the PT box and wrote that I prefer FT, but would (gladly, eagerly) attend either if admitted.

Is anyone else having trouble logging into the status checker? The main site updated so I think that might have something to do with it...

I'm sure this is no consolation but those numbers seem like you should be admitted. Maybe they are really out of space. Try stalking Dean Brown a little with emails etc.

if you type in "fordham application checker" in google, the first link that comes up should lead you to the old status checker page. the direct link is: http://law.fordham.edu/rd/html/adm-Appl ... hecker.htm

it seems like they are in the process of transitioning to the new website, but the old one is still available. If you go to a bookmarked link you get the old site. Going to law.fordham.edu gives you the new one.

So I guess no open spaces today. I really wish the folks who knew they were not going to attend would withdraw all ready! Still crossing my fingers.
Back to (im)patiently waiting.

Based upon average numbers of
those listed as "guests" to the thread this page and an airtight process on inferential reasoning ;)
I'm going to reckon that 50 or more are still waiting to hear from the WL (pt and ft combined)

I think there should be still a lot.

I emailed Dean Brown last Friday. And one LOR was emailed to him presumably today too.
Don't know if it helps though.

Someone just posted in 'FRUSTRATED BY FORDHAM' that s/he withdrew from the PT program. Someone, somewhere might hear something soon.

Nice catch! Looks like I'm not the only one stalking everything Fordham right now. Now back to waiting... good luck everyone!
