Formal do you want to stay on the waitlist letter received. Waitlisted on status checker on dec. 16, before I got my new and much better score. Called admissions for consideration of my new score, they said they would see...??? 169/3.4. I live in the NY area and would love to stay here.

Can you follow up with an email or a letter? Seems to me that a score like that would give you a great shot at acceptance!

For those of you who are interested in visiting...I contacted office of admissions they said that to see the school you just stop by their office, they give you a map of the school, and you take a self-guided tour. I will probably do this tomorrow...

Kind of random question, but what does one wear for this. It seems informal but at the same time you are definitely showing yourself in person to people on admissions and impressions do count. Any suggestions?

Just don't be all sloppy. Informal doesn't mean like, sweat pants. You can be informal and still look nice.

Yeah, they told me the same. I was hoping to set up some sort of appointment or find out what time classes are held, but they pretty much just said to come in whenever. Also, does the status checker notify you that they received your WL response form? Because I sent mine in a little over a week ago with my LOCI and my status check still says "file has been waitlisted"

I sent mine in about a month ago, and it hasn't changed, so I'm assuming not.

Question to distract from the waiting: How did the Vikings screw up that final drive so badly last night?!

They Brett Favre-d it. And this coming from someone who has been a Brett Favre fan for 14 years.

Also, any team with that many turnovers in one game doesn't deserve to win.

That dumb 12-man huddle that took them out of field goal range, and forced Brett to throw the ball (into that fateful interception). Without that 12 man penalty, they may have very well ended it right there.

Yeah, that too many men in the huddle penalty seemed JV to me. I've never seen anything like that called before.

They still should have ran the ball after that and given Longwell the chance. Worst that could happen then is that he misses and they go into overtime.

Also, pretty funny http://nymag.com/daily/sports/2010/01/fun_with_the_espnrulesforall_t.html

And it totally looked like Favre had a clear lane to run it at least back to where the ball had been before the penalty, but he was dead set on throwing.

I'll probably just wear some khakis and a polo shirt. I don't want to go overboard and wear a suit in a self-guided tour with no formal component to it. I don't think you score points for dressing up like crazy, but you probably lose points if you show up looking like a mess. So anything presentable or business casual should be fine in my opinion.

I wore dress pants and a sweater (no dress shirt under, just a white undershirt) cause it was FREEZING.

Alan and nygrrrl
just based on the impression I got from ASD, I must say I highly doubt that Fordham would just string you along for the heck of it. I am sure they have a very good reason to keep you waiting, they just don't seem like the kind of school who doesn't care about their applicants. My guess is that if your application is on the weaker side or not a shoe in, they wanna see how you fit into the class once they have a better idea of who's coming

that being said, you realistically shouldn't expect a decision for at least another month if you ask me, but again I doubt that they would string you along for 10,11, however many weeks "just because". They are probably deliberating between WL and admit, and even in the former case you still have a good chance of getting in

Alan, I know your # and am really surprised you haven't been admitted yet. Admittance may be coming up for you soon, just hang in there. Send LOCI addressing Fordham specific aspects you desire in a school, assure them that you WILL attend! VISIT if you can, I think it can make a huge difference. If necessary, get another letter of rec.

nygrrrl, I'd recommend the same thing to you

On another note, I have to say that, 1 day after ASD, I am highly impressed with Fordham. It let's some other, supposedly "better" schools pale in comparison. Bravo Fordham! You earned my respect and I would choose you over higher ranked schools in a second

+1 -- promise they aren't doing this on purpose!

I did hear Dean Brown say yesterday that they had admitted about 700 students so far. Based on previous years, that is probably about 1/3 of the total amount they will admit this year, so don't despair!

Good luck and I have my fingers crossed for you :-)

Question unrelated to admissions.

Is there a gym on campus? If so, is it any decent?

I know you guys really want Fordham, and I hope they admit you because I think it's students like you, those who are passionate about Fordham and love it, that make it such a friendly place

thanks guys. I'm sure fordham wouldnt do it "just because" and we are more borderline/median #s so I'm sure they want to see what their class looks like. It's just veryyyyyyy nerve-wracking waiting hehe. thats where our frustration comes from!!
