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!

Cutest story: I just got a call from a former manager of mine at a restaurant that I worked at during grad school 2 years ago. He had heard through one of the people that I used to work with that I had gotten into Fordham and called to congratulate me! I have a giant smile on my face right now and thought I'd share :D

That would be almost perfect with my schedule, because I could work the entire day Friday (with part days the other days) and have $$$ for school. Will probably send my app sometime next week, but it's very unlikely they'll take me (though I did write a "Why PT" segment to my PS).

I was under the impression that if you don't get in FT you get auto-deffered to consideration for PT? Or you can choose that option? Or something. Am I mistaken?

He heard you got into Fordham so now he clearly wants a piece of your newfound awesomeness...

According to the website, you cannot apply for both at the same time, but if you are declined admission FT, you can submit a request in writing to have your file reviewed for PT. I did this via email.

Ha, clearly. Actually, he's always been one of my biggest supporters...I thought he was going to cry when I told him that I was going back to school for Human Rights law, he was so proud! I was going to wait until later on in the cycle to let him know how it went but apparently news travels fast in NYC!

Just logged onto my status checker and found out I was waitlisted today with a 167 and 3.55. Went complete 11/2.

ehhhh. Good luck to everyone else still waiting.

Hey everybody, I went complete as of 11/16 and I doubt I'll hear anything before January. Good luck to all those waiting on the final EA statuses. Fordham is my only choice so I'm in this thread everyday but finally decided to register ;)

Btw, I have a question. Since I'm a senior in UG and I'm regular decision, can I update my transcript to include the Fall semester's GPA? I'd probably make it before a decision is made. Would be nice, that's for sure. If so, how do I do that? Would I have to just ask the school to send in an updated transcript or do I have to do something on LSAC so that Fordham knows about it once it is already updated? Or do they get notified once LSAC takes care of the update?

Wow man, that's rough. Those are solid numbers. Makes me scared.

Wow, interesting. Those are definitely numbers that would normally be in their ballpark.
Oh Fordham, what are you planning this year...

I received the acceptance letter back in November, but no package yet. Scholarship info, for me, came a few days later.

So the scholarship info came separately after you got the acceptance letter?

No.. but I am also 167, 3.55+ so I am expecting it at this point. I applied 11/15 and compelte 11/16 so I don't expect to hear back yet....

They're obviously waitlisting EAers especially because they want to wait to see how high they can raise their median LSAT (if at all). In a way, I'm almost glad I didn't apply EA because it's not enough time for them to see what kind of applicants they have. There is no way they can raise their median more than 1 point so I think 167s and splitters are going to be okay eventually.

I'm not sure when they review WL.. I thought not earlier than Feb or March for sure?

I cannot sleep. this process is so stressful.

That's the reason I didn't apply EA anywhere, but it didn't work out for me at Fordham. Good luck, Alan Shore!

Yes, a couple days later.
