I don't want to turn down the waitlist offer, because I really do love Fordham, but I have offers of 25K a year from BU and 30K a year + housing from GW and I don't know if I should even bother waiting it out on Fordham only to get in and be asked to pay sticker (which I doubt I could do, even considering I live close enough to NY to commute)
Posts like this make me wonder. Fordham has not been known for YP, but could this be the year?
No..I think the same as there are those freak occurences where somebody with low numbers gets in just cuz they liked their app, it could also be that they didnt like something in the app enough to make them not accept right away, but wanted to keep the applicant incase they need the numbers later on.
my theory as to the 28319023 waitlists is that the bulk of their apps arent in yet and so theyre trying to get a better look at the whole applicant pool before making final decisions. just a guess though.
