I third that! I too am hoping that a wave of acceptances are to come leading up to ASD. And am glad to know that I'm not the only one who went complete 11/16 FT and is waiting.

As long as they keep looking at it, you're still good. How's the LSAT prep going?

I actually liked the games. It's weird how people either hate them or love them. If you asked them to hold your file for the feb scores, hopefully they won't make (a negative) decision about it.

I like the games---my poor performance is a result of freezing up during the real thing. I know how to attack them, but for some reason, on game day I freeze up at a single rule and then it throws me off. usually the 3rd game. june it was dinos, sept it was planes. Also, games with very few rules used to get to me and I just now realized those are probably the easiest games. I think its all a matter of it clicking and being comortable.

Yeah, I am probably going to visit the Monday after the lsat and tell them I just retook.

Do you guys think I should update my transcripts? My lsac gpa is pathetic (sub 3) and I was told by not just fordham, but william & mary as well, that the concern is whether or not I will be able to do the work. My Fall gpa 3.3 (3 A-, 1 B+, 1 C+)--Im worried it might hurt, rather than help, me--even though it will bring my lsac gpa up. But I have a gpa addendum explaining the period of crappy grades and the usual "I had an epiphany and realized the value of education"--my fear is that they see fall grades and think "ok, even after her epiphany she still only got a 3.3" or will they look at the coursework (all 400 level phil classes) and think that a 3.3 in 400-level phil classes shows potential.

I would think anything that is above your lsac gpa would help.

Honestly, unless it makes your LSDAS go up significantly, I really wouldn't update, especially if you wrote an addendum about an upward trend.

hmm this is tough goosey! i'm not sure what i would do in your position. i think i wouldn't update.. H.E. is right that if it's above your gpa it would help.. but the schools have said that they are worried you won't perform well in LS. A 3.3 and especially a C+ (even though I'm sure it was a super tough class) probably won't help your case much.


let us know what you decide! what were your other classes?

yeah thats my concern as well. and it really only changes the number in the hundredths place. not even a tenth up. and I think sub 3 gpa's arent all that different, especially something like a 2.85 to 2.88, etc--maybe a 2.5 to a 2.8 would matter, but probably not that significantly even so.

the rest were..senior seminar for phil majors, phil of science, etc.

William & Mary specifically asked for fall grades so I will have to send them in, but for Fordham, I might just let it slide. damn c+

yeah i'd say to play it safe for now. killing the lsat will help more than an increase in the hundredths!

Current Status: Your application is complete
Current Status Date: 11/16/2009
Decision Status: Your file has been been waitlisted
Decision Status Date: 1/11/2010


Well, looks like im pretty much out of the running.

Anyone know how deep Fordham typically goes into their waitlist?

Good luck everyone else.

Sucks. Great GPA but LSAT score was lacking.
