Care to summarize the situation for us?


Well basically a ton of people got a DR 12/1 and no one has heard anything yet. People are organizing mass phone barages on the admissions office, flipping out cause no one gets the same answer from a rep, etc.


lol. Just play it cool people.

That is silly, how is Deffered to Regular confussing? Why badger the adcoms? Why flip out?

I think DR here means "decision rendered." So, they know a decision is coming, but don't know what it is yet.

When I said DR, I meant Decision Rendered. Maybe I'm not up on the message board lingo. Sorry for the confusion. All they know is that a decision was made, nothing else.

Plus, someone got it out of the admissions office that the 12/1 DR group's letters/emails/whatever the hell they are were delayed for awhile for a phantom reason. But to make a long story short, we all wen tto decision a week ago and have heard nothing. Its sort of torture.

Anyway, not to burst anyone's bubble, but I think someone called FOrdham and found out like ten pages back that WL is WL, not deferral. But again, keep your hopes up because it does seem like they get pretty deep into their waitlist.

As of this morning, I am STILL complete 10/19 and STILL a splitter and STILL have not received anything!

Maybe a guardian angel called the admissions office on your behalf JUST as they were about to make a decision on your application. Do you know any cherubs?

LOL -- I lost count a long time ago...but, honestly, most of those grays came from teaching first grade. When my students pointed them out, I told them that I named the grays after them. So, at least one of those grays should definitely be called "Fordham."

We can just have a big dye party once everyone gets in/off the WL ;-)

Do you think that maybe they asked for a reccomendation from someone on your resume or something? Or maybe they wanted your GPA explained by your university if it was different from LSAC?
