congratulations Lilac.


I actually got my snail mail letter denying my initial application yesterday. Even though so much has happened since then, it stung. I really hope to we get an answer soon... a positive one at that.

I kind of want to start the admitted student's assigned summer reading but I feel like I would be jumping the gun....

When did you first apply?


Does anyone know by what percentage applications increased @ Fordham Law this year? Or are they generally pretty slow to snail mail notifications?

Not working for me. And my bookmark to the health services page doesn't work anymore. I think the fancy website upgrade came with a few kinks.

EDIT I: Used Silenziatori's link and now I'm good. Thanks!

And there are finally events in the important dates box! And things to check off in the check list! It's a whole new world :o

It doesn't specify FT or PT and they applied for both, I wonder which it is.

You know what… I’m going to start the reading over the weekend. The worst that could happen is that I’ll be really prepared…

Hopefully that will distract me from worrying due to resent developments (i.e. the LSN update).

Patience is a virtue, I hear.

When you call do you just ask to speak with Dean Brown? I want to call today. I have only had email contact with Brown.

I tried and didn't have the luck to talk to him. I left a message on Tuesday asking him if it is helpful to send another recommendation letter. I tried to call twice yesterday, but I didn't leave message. I am worried that he has phone screening and he knows that I am stalking him. :(

Also called and got the brush off today, but that was before I even said my name... my phone call didn't get that far even.
Got the usual "files are under review" response. I say boo to that.
Still hoping, still very much hoping.

A Civil Action is a very nice book. Highly recommended. I read it a couple years ago.
