Same....sigh.

The Fordham alumns at my work seem confident I will get in....really, why is it that everyone else can be so confident about our chances yet the bulk of us are spazzing non-stop.

Because very few people seem to realize how competative this whole process has gotten.

Because spazzing is more fun than staring at database tables like I'm doing at my job.

I was trying to upload the picture of my festivus pole to show you the most exciting thing that's currently happening at my office, but I realized that I don't know how to do that.

So I'll just tell you that there is a sign about the history of Festivus next to the pole, so no one tries to adorn it. There was an...incident...last year when my CEO taped a candy cane on it because it was "ugly."

Frank Costanza would have been very upset about that....he also finds tinsel very distracting.

Hah, I would love to be on that phone call:

AdCom 1: "Well, we want to let them know where they stand so they will stop calling"

AdCom 2: "Well, let's just waitlist these guys and look at them after the New Year"

Adcom 1: "Good plan, Bob, but what about the folks we're still looking at?"

AdCom 2: "Well, we can just leave them hang in limbo, or we can tell some of them that they are "In Review""

AdCom 1: "But aren't all of them in review? Won't that just make the stress worse?"

AdCom 2: "Oh please, Chuck, they aren't stressed, they just enjoy calling our office every 20 minutes and pissing off our assistant. Trust me, the "In Review" thing will just clear so much up...."

(TWO DAYS LATER)

AdCom 1: "Fail, Bob, fail"

AdCom 2: (silence)

A somewhat hilarous, pseduoserious explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus

This is officially my first post, but I have reached the point where I am too worried not to say something.

I applied for EA and have been complete since 11/2, my GPA is above the 25th percentile and my LSAT is above the 75th percentile. However, earlier today, I received a phone call from the assistant director of admissions and they had a question about my statement of disclosure, which was for use of a fake id. I'm really worried that this is going to keep me out of Fordham and I really want to go, I want the option of going to a good school close to home and now I am overly concerned. Does anyone have any idea if this is going to adversely affect my application?

On a position note for everyone else, she indicated to me that they are really trying hard to make sure that everyone who applied EA hears either today or tomorrow. So the waiting is almost done.

I would think that if they called you about it, they're still considering you. If they disliked it enough, they would have just rejected you. I spoke to a Dean once who said that generally with these type of issues, it's not what you did, but how you write about it. Do you try and make excuses, pass the blame on someone else, ramble on with unnecessary details, etc. I think the call means at worst, they are still undecided, but if you cleared up whatever they needed cleared up, hopefully you'll get it. Good Luck!

Calm down, I promise you, if they like you, a fake ID will not hurt you. A friend of mine owns a hedge fund and when they were running a background check on a potential employee they found he had plead guilty to some type of forgery. My friend and his partners freaked out, until they checked into it and it turned out that the potential new epmloyee (now in his late 20s) had gotten his fake ID confiscated at a bar when he was 20. The bouncer, rather then just cut up the ID, reported him to the police.

It happens a lot, much like a parking ticket or speeding ticket. The AdCom knows this, they probably wanted to make sure that you weren't leaving something out (like, serving alcohol to minors or getting a DUI) and that they were confident that you had grown out of that stage.

Lots of people make mistakes in college....so chillax.

Dear folks, congrats to those who are already in and good luck to those still waiting.

does anyone hv any idea about the ratio of admissions between EA and RA of Fordham? do they give out most admissions early???? Seems a lot of ppl got admission from EA already. Very anxious. Coz I did my undergrad overseas and it just takes forever for LSAC to process my transcript!! I think I prob hv to wait until Jan to complete any app :'(((((

My numbers: 167, intl UGPA (I guess it would be an 'above average' from others' experience, stupid LSAC dumb dumb!), graduate GPA 3.82 from a very top university (but I guess nobody cares about grad GPA!) and I m applying to the evening PT program.

I m REALLY REALLY ANXIOUS becoz this PT program is to secure my current job. THANK YOU A LOT LOT for giving me any advice!

P.S. sorry to those who might hv seem this post several other places...i just really need some words...

Congrats and Thank You!! Best of luck at NYU

I would also like to call "dibs" on that spot, in case that's how Fordham wants to handle this.
