This waitlist is like a tie with your bitter rival in the big game...

In the meantime, that angry post about fordham in the choosing a school forum had to open some eyes :shock:

You can find someone with gripes like that at every school. None of them are perfect, and they all have bad years / semesters from time to time.

I wonder if that means they're updating statuses.

Just checked my status online. Fordham gave me my first rejection so far. Oh well, this wasn't unexpected.

Oh, I'm 161/3.94 fwiw.

Sorry to hear that. You should be proud of your GPA, though. It'll definitely help you out somewhere else.

Not sure on the deadline, but wouldn't it say in the mailing somewhere? FWIW, I was WL'd at ND, and I think I had 10 or 14 days to respond. I think most schools start consulting the list closer to the seat deposit deadline, so, late March probably.

Based on TLS, it looks like the number of WL's is disproportionally large, as compared to other schools. Is this Fordham's alternative to holding applications?

I know it's early in the cycle, but can we start confirming that they are trying to up the medians?

Honestly, I never thought there was any doubt but that they were going to try to bump the numbers, this year. Sure looks to be true...

I went complete on 12/9. Can I expect to hear from them before the end of January? How fast do they seem to be responding? Thanks.

No doubt they're looking to up the medians, just like every other school, but Fordham goes pretty deep into the waitlist. There's a ton of time left in the cycle, and I'm sure things will start to make more sense in the weeks to come.
