It would definitely look suspicious if you apply to PT with no valid reason for doing so. I went the PT route, but I've been an engineer for 6 years and hopefully will get a patent agent/scientific advisor job.


Well I do have a full-time job right now, I was just willing to leave it for law school. But I have no problem keeping it and using that $$ instead of all loans.

I mean, I am thinking of the PT program now, but I would still leave my job. My job is already 12+ hours a day, I get out too late to attend any class that starts before 8pm, and even then I have no idea when I am supposed to study for class...or sleep.

I am wondering if Fordham would be okay if I got my masters degree while doing my first year JD part time??

Ugh. I HAVE to keep my job - have to support my family - so I need the PT program.
I hope they take things like that into account.

I may be really fried and thus not in my right mind, but that post just actually made me cry.
Thanks Ruby - I will be sending you good vibes, too. :D

There is too much crying going on in here! I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Ruby, so sorry to hear about your WL...but I have a good feeling that they will let you in. They just like to string everyone along first, which in my opinion, totally sucks.

I'm still at complete today.

If you have already been WL'ed as an EA applicant, can you ask to be considered for PT or is it too late for that? Because if I was a WL for FT, I feel like I would have gotten in PT.

Withdrew my application from the waitlist today. Hopefully it will somehow open up a spot for somebody who really, really wants to go to Fordham! Good luck everybody! :D

But I wasn't EA, still think I should call if I don't hear by the 15th?

If you are complete 11/2, I'm assuming you submitted by 11/1, correct? If that's the case, then you ARE EA, because everyone who submitted by then is automatically EA. So yes, if you don't hear by the 15th, call.

Oh wow, thanks for the info, I thought the EA deadline was earlier. Now i'm really freaking out about not hearing back yet. Given that everyone else has I am starting to think my application is lost or something...

It was earlier originally, but because they were so late getting the app out, they changed it. Normally it's Oct 15th, just not this year.

If you received a status checker and "complete" status then I think it's safe to say that your app hasn't been lost (!) and you're still being evaluated. Good luck!
