Sorry this is random but why wouldn't you just send the transcript directly to the school?

I think you need to send an updated LSAC report in order for it to be considered. not 100% sure about this but this is what I assumed.

I applied recently. above 75th LSAT and below 25th GPA. Have there been any positive responses with splitters this cycle? I was already on LSN, now hoping to hear from some others.

Why if it is directly sent by your undergraduate institution (ie: them to fordham, not them you fordham)? Plus updating with LSAC don't you have to pay the 12$ to send the updated report? Sorry I sent my transcript directly to the school so I'm just trying to make sure it's cool. I'm already WLed though.

well i'm not exactly sure why but a few schools i emailed (giving them a headsup about a new LSAC report) wrote something like "Thanks. This will be added to you file but please update LSAC." or "Thanks. We will await the updated report"

something like that.

splitters have been getting WL left and right this cycle (with a few exceptions). I think they will all be admitted eventually though.

oh but i should note that i'm sure the schools will take whatever you send and add it into your file. i just think they want the updated report to be 100% sure.

is fordham known for going deep into WL?

I just read they gave out 2000 acceptances for a class size of 400(FT&PT)! that seems wild

You're right
I was comparing to the closest school which was Bama at 500 accepted if I read TLS rankings correctly.

Well the reason I'm updating LSAC is because it slightly ups my GPA and isn't just to show my grades for the Fall semester. At the end of the day they only take the LSAC GPA so sending it directly to the school would not accomplish this. Plus, once LSAC processes it you don't have to manually update the info to Fordham do you? I thought that was automatic.

Did I miss some drama in this thread?

Last cycle, FT didn't have much WL movement, but PT had a ton. My roommate, a Feb retaker, got into FT in July (it took that long for space to be available), and she had a 167/3.5. They loved her, but the class was full.

PT had a lot of WL movement. The WL was opened on May 1st, and people kept being admitted up through August. A ton of my friends were former waitlistees. We went through a lot together, and this acceptance meant a lot to us. Fordham has loyal students. Out of a combined class of nearly 480, only 15 people transferred out last year, and 31 transferred in.

25% yield for a T30 is to be expected. Yield is usually much higher for PT, because this is the best school someone with a mid to low GPA 164 is going to get. I believe the school under admitted last year.

sounds about right


The Myers-Briggs has poor test-retest reliability, but I usually end up scoring as an INFP. According to wikipedia, notable INFPs include Neil Diamond, Princess Diana, and Fred Savage...hmm...


I had taken this test and discussed my results in a paper for leadership class two years ago. I re-took just now and had to go back to see what my results were then. ENTJ both times. http://www.personalitypage.com/ENTJ.html

this may make some of you feel better but I was admitted with a 3.4 and 159 pretty late in the game for the PT program. non-URM.
