I think a lot of it is that they're also trying to protect their yield. The 166/3.7 is much more likely to actually attend Fordham than the 170/3.4, because the latter will likely get into a T14 or two, and probably money at some T20s.
yep i agree. well, i hope we are right. i am not a splitter..
I am, and I am on the WL. I do have some $$ offers from some other schools though, but NYC really really really appeals to me, so I was rather disappointed. Visiting in a few weeks, hoping that will help.
sorry nancy. what are your #s? are your $ offers from schools of similar rank? fordham is being quite tough this year. visiting should definitely help. OS swears by it.
