I'm not sure what to do - scream or cry. Fordham is my number one choice, so needless to say, this feels amazing.

Submitted 10/31, Complete 11/02
167, 3.6

Decision Status: Congratulations you have been admitted!
Decision Status Date: 12/8/2009


Some of the best words I've ever read. I can't get the smile off my face!

Congratulations! And I'll see you there!

Well, most probably. Unless Fordham retracts my acceptance and laughs mercilessly in my weeping face while crushing me with a giant flaming boulder.

And here I thought those visions would stop after I got accepted...

Go for it. I spent $200 in the Fordham bookstore the day after I was admitted, and couldn't explain to the bemused student workers why I was clutching the merchandise and crying.

Love and luck to those still waiting. Back to studying.

LOL - I love that image. I am still "In Review." As long as I am still in the running, I am happy.

I'm freaking out. After getting rejected ED from GULC, I'm pretty much counting on Fordham as my number one and I'm in the weird group of "recommendation received" people.

Me, too. I am actually nauseous. Fordham is my #1.

OS, any ideas as to the odd status? Did they have "recommendation received" last cycle, and how did that play out for those with the status?

I was never aware that it meant anything special, other than an acknowledgment that someone added something to your file. Fordham keeps physical paper files on every single applicant. You would not believe what it looked like in Dean Brown's office that day in May, when I first met him. Honestly, I think he meant what he said in the interview. Splitters get waitlisted, but many get in in May and June. I know this is not what you want to hear, and I didn't want to hear it either a year ago, but the people with both numbers near the medians, like beebs, get accepted first.

You may have a long wait, but your chances are still just fine. Try not to let it take over your life, the way it did to me. Five and a half months is not an unheard of length for a cycle at Fordham. I've heard of people waiting seven months (last minute WL/IN kids).

I would do it all again, because it was worth every minute of that wait.

To Tesoro: yes. Use the entrance closest to Columbus Circle to get there.

Woohoo! Sweatshirts all around!

I request more poems and songs though. Just cuz some decisions have been rendered doesn't mean we have to lose the creative enjoyment...

Does anyone know the average time between an acceptance via status checker and the corresponding physical mailing? I was accepted 12/3 and another poster, accepted on 11/18, is still waiting too. I'm anxious! :D

I was accepted 11/6. I went on vacation 11/10 and it was home when I got back from vacation on 11/16. So something between 5 and 10 days for me.

My letter said that an accepted student package is coming "in a few weeks." I'd assume the delay on the 11/18 poster is because Fordham is going to attempt to just initially send the package to all admits, rather than sending two separate mailings. Be patient, the hard part is over :)

What about money decisions? I'm not expecting much with my numbers & Fordham's notorious stinginess, but should I expect something with the packet (whenever that comes), or later in the spring, or...?

Boy, if I knew the answer to that question I'd be a lot happier right now.

I'm waiting until the end of Jan ... I think the picture will be a lot clearer then given LSN postings and people reporting here on TLS. If you look at LSN, there are a few people reporting scholarships.

Anyone know if they'll get around to emailing us waitlisters? My other WL I got an automated email from the Dean with some info about the waitlist.

Just got to drink the bottle of champagne that has been sitting on my desk since October in preparation for this day. :D

Also, to cap off the day, was accepted to Notre Dame this afternoon with an 18k/year renewable scholarship. I don't this this perma-grin has left my face since this afternoon. :D

Congrats to all the acceptance, and good luck to all the WL's. Here's to an amazing class of 2013!

Glad you got to drink the champagne! That's so exciting!

Can't wait to get my sweatshirt either (which I will do once I finally just get my rejection from Columbia, where I applied ED before I got my LSAT score haha)!
