Sorry to those who didn't get in, keep your chins up! Something good is bound to come along.

And to those on the WL, I'm withdrawing this week if GW lets me in.

Someone send GW cookies with my name on them!!

Hey I just applied last week with 168 and a 3.7...a
1) are my chances hurt because im applying so late?
2) How long do you guys think it takes to get your status changed? I mean I dont understand how people know when to check it constantly if it could take up to 2 months.

Hi, I've only read the previous few pages, so forgive me if I'm repeating myself.

My application, 166/3.7/top 20 school/3 years work/white/F, was complete 11/16. The Fordham website says it usually makes a decision 6-8 weeks from the application completion date.

Should I be worried that I'm toward the 8 week mark?

Just for fun...what are my chances?

normally, id say you're in for sure. this year has been weird though and it is clear that fordham is trying to increase their stats. i still think you're pretty safe.

lots of 11/16 people still waiting.. including myself.

(2) Does Fordham update decision on Status Checker at a certain time/day of week?

(3) My status doesn't even say "Pending Decision" like it does for BC. Thoughts?

Thanks!


They never say pending decision. It will just have the complete date until a decision has been made, at which point under the completion date it will give the decision.

The checkers update whenever.

Hearing nothing is better than a WL or rejection, Alan. Keep those hopes up!

LOL - and love your new 'Tar. Yes, I'm counting this one in Fordham's favor, I guess.

Oh, hey, and Fordham? Thursday really agrees with you. You really are pretty, today...
