There are still a bunch of people from mid-Nov that haven't heard anything yet so take a deeeeeeeeeeep breath, saddle-up, and join the madness that is the Fordham waiting room. You might enjoy passing the time by writing a Fordham song parody or perhaps a haiku, as they have become quite popular around here lately.

And of course, as goes for all, best of luck!

Congrats to the new admits! So far, everybody in has been pretty solidly above median. I wouldn't panic or freak out yet... my cycle took five and a half months, and it wasn't even close to being the longest.

Here's hoping for more good news, especially for all the PT applicants.

I am there at undergrad right now! So it is definitely so important for me to have this opportunity. Fordham was always my dream school even when I was like 10. I passed it often and was like, "I'll be going here one day"

This Fugazi song about sums it up:

I am a patient boy
I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait
My time is like water down a drain
Everybody's moving,
Everybody's moving,
Everybody's moving, moving, moving, moving
Please don't leave me to remain
In the waiting room

Not to mention the UG campus is not exactly in as nice of a location as the law school campus

LSN seems to show a huge swath of acceptances and a ton of rejections below the diagonal corridor between 158/4.0 and 172/3.0 is telling. They are definitely holding many of the borderline candidates. Of course, not sure how to explain the WL scattered throughout but suspiciously not within that corridor.

Isn't this kind of a ballsy statement?


Sorry Kim, but... +1. There are lots of highly qualified candidates who've been waiting much longer. Deep, cleansing breaths....


I know, it's very frustrating. I'm not saying anything to get on anyone's nerves, I'm just extremely frustrated.
