Congratulations to everyone who got in!! I must say reading this board is really freaking me out. Oh, Fordham, why are you doing this to us?

Am thinking of adding a "why Fordham" essay to my file, I wonder if that will actually make any difference.


+1.. any thoughts on this? is it too early?


I wrote a really heartfelt, genuine, and specific "Why Fordham" statement, combined with my stats (167, 3.5x URM), and I still didn't get in (I was WL'ed). So it obviously makes absolutely no difference.

Hey everyone. I was accepted (FT) on December 3, but still have not received anything in the mail (I live in Florida). I called this week and was told it was mailed on the fourth. Has anyone received anything in the mail? I'm afraid it got lost :|

It seems as if Fordham still has a ton of EA decisions to get out by Tuesday. Anyone have any idea if any decisions will be going out today?

Hey guys, I applied rather late. I'm curious what the average turn-around time has been for the RD folks.

Edits: And has anyone that sent it out within last month heard yet?

You guys - BREATHE, seriously. It's the Holidays - the postal service is swamped. It's only been a week! Congrats on your acceptances - relax, enjoy.

Just out of curiosity, were you offered any merit based scholarship money? If so, did you hear in your initial letter or was it sometime after?

Wow, I'm really sorry and really shocked. (And hopefully Fordham's adcomm decisions are not indicative of what's going on at other schools this cycle!). Wishing Fordham wasn't my top choice right now!

^ This is actually ridiculous. Who does Fordham think it is this year?? Those stats have a fair chance up to CCN, but they got a WL from Fordham? Things are a-changing at Fordham this year!!

how many times a day do you guys go back and read your entire submitted pdf file on lsac? I do so atleast 3 times a day to reassure myself that my application will win hearts in that office.

+1. Sorry to hear that, NJ914. Fordham is so weird this cycle! I'm glad I bit the bullet and withdrew from the waitlist.
