Eh, he/she has a 180 so unless your LSAT is anywhere near that I wouldn't concern yourself with the amount. In other news, baiailian, what on earth are you doing applying to Fordham?!
+1. I've been criticized for over-applying, and even I didn't go outside the top 20.
I wanted a safety in NYC, and it's not like I have a 4.33 too...
I tried not to apply anywhere I would never go. If Fordham ended up as my best option, I might be a little weirded out by my cycle, but I wouldn't be sad to go there. I might withdraw my apps at my safety-safeties now, though - spare them a few dollars of labor and someone else an initial WL.
Fordham gave me $20k/yr, automatically renewable, which I think is pretty neat. Current law students have led me to expect slightly more than that from Fordham's peer institutions, but I've also heard Fordham is quite poor, so maybe it doesn't bode badly.
And yes, I applied to a good number of places from Yale on down, but someone on here said it was a bad idea to disclose all of your applications on LSN, in case adcomms see it. I think this makes no sense and is probably false, but it frightened me nonetheless.
If you're not a jerk online, is there actually a good case against outing yourself?

You received, to the best of my knowledge, the largest merit scholarship Fordham gives. (There may be a handful more that are given upon invitation, or for PI students, but I was hardly deserving of money, so I don't know much about it.) You were well informed that our peer schools are far wealthier; I'm pleased my school has managed so well with this modest endowment. And also happy we don't yield protect, as YP is a vile practice.
Without knowledge of your GPA, I can't be certain, but some of our wealthier peers should offer you full rides. As for full disclosure of numbers, the risk depends on the rarity of your LSAT/GPA. Minimao was legendary, and her 180/3.15 split might easily have given her away. She's now a 2L at my favorite T14, so has little to fear. I advise people to be more concerned about sharing unusual personal details. Fordham identified me because I talked about my major, not because of my 164. Those with average numbers like mine need not fear identification by disclosure.
Best of luck, and enjoy your cycle!
