It takes usually 24 hours for the DNS to propagate.

In layman's terms you need to wait a little longer, or use an ISP that is different from the one you are using currently.


Good idea, I did this and it worked - do a search for web proxies, and try a couple. It took me a few tries to find one that would pull it up, but I got it through proxiernow.info.


I'm 99.9% positive that finalaspects is correct about the issue.


Okay, so it is a DNS error. Using http://www.opendns.com/ might help.

So i work as the Director of IT in my company. It's funny how everyone here seems to react the same way my company does when i use IT jargon. But it seems the people here are a little smarter in that they found their way around it, without me walking them step by step.

You guys are smarter then the avg employee in my company! :P

I'm a web designer so as soon as you said DNS I was like, "duh! why didn't I think of that?!" Hence the proxy idea.

You and I are splitters.... We will wait til the end of time, but since LSAT is very important, we are more likely to get into the higher ranked schools albeit in the last possible second.

and yea they don't seem to care that we are dying slowly day by day.

I'm also a splitter, so I'm probably in the same boat.

I know, its just frustrating. Also my GPA for the last seven semesters has been a 3.78...I only had two bad semesters, so I'm hoping that works in my favor. Does Fordham not interview at all?

applied Oct 15, complete Oct. 19, LSAT a few points above 75%, GPA a few tenths below median.

good luck everybody! I can't believe their site effs up on the day they start accepting people. just cruel.

submitted on 10/20 or something around then, so obviously took quite a while for me to get to complete. it seems like they just wait and do spurts of acceptances every couple weeks, so hopefully you'll be next batch!

Unofficially. Go in and ask questions, make it clear how much you know/love about the school, and you can get on their radar. I promised to repay the school for giving me a chance, and somehow, I will.

I want y'alls opinion on this: I feel like Fordham should've responded by now- I went complete 10/29 and have a 167/3.65 from top 10 private school + very strong softs.. LSP puts me in the 73rd percentile for Fordham... Any idea why I haven't heard back yet, anyone??

P.S: My status checker says complete, but I hear Fordham doesn't update when your app is under review. Also, my status checker is down today.. anyone else?

They changed their DNS so its only down if your ISP (internet service provider) has not updated their DNS yet. Use proxies (google it) to get access to their site.

As for law school admissions, they have always been a mystery as we all know. I went complete on 10/19 and have yet to hear anything back.

Status checker worked with google- thanks!! Yeah I guess they are somewhat mysterious about admissions.. Just wish that my "safe" schools, one of which is Fordham, would start replying :(

Hmmm, I am 167/3.42 also from a good UG (and with one major where no one gets an A....ever, the other major was normal) and I consider Fordham my reach school. Maybe there are alot of people with numbers in this area and thus it is taking them longer to make a decision.

Also sending congrats to those who got accepted.

(If only in the hope of building good karma so I can get a damn decision.)
