OK, time for self-analysis

I think I'm just kinda irked that there's nothing I can do at this point. When I was taking the LSAT, I could always study a bit more. When I was writing my PS, I could always tweak it or totally scrap it and start over. When I was hunting down my professors for LoRs I could always send them just one more nagging message.

Now I don't even know what to do with myself, because I can't think of anything else I could work on to help my app. I really should re-invest in my hobbies. Or get another girlfriend or something. Anything but...ya know, focus on my work.

Anyone else feeling this way?

Congrats!

Just checked the spam folder out of despair - nothing but Viagra and penis enlargement offers... :(

Silence.
VLADIMIR: This is awful!
ESTRAGON: Sing something.
VLADIMIR: No no! (He reflects.) We could start all over again perhaps.
ESTRAGON: That should be easy.
VLADIMIR: It's the start that's difficult.
ESTRAGON: You can start from anything.
VLADIMIR: Yes, but you have to decide.
ESTRAGON: True.
Silence.

Wow, I'm a 12/29er as well and didn't expect to find out until much much later (and I probably still won't). Congrats! Hopefully all of you guys who have been waiting for much longer find out soon!

I am beginning to think that we have fallen into some kind of black hole and that they have forgotten us. Like, all of the 11/16 apps are behind a file cabinet somewhere, not to be discovered until next December.

Ok, Fordham, keep slipping down the splitter rail... I'm in your LSAT range, just a 'lil further to go on the GPA...

We can stage a sit in?

On a campus that we don't go to (yet). That'll teach 'em.

That, or they'll use the apps as bedding for a family of hamsters.

I started teaching myself German. Sprechen sie Deutch?! Though in reality, I try for a little while, and then am like, oh hey, I'll check my status checker.

Now I've moved on. Maybe I'll read every book on my bookshelf. I figure that's better than becoming a compulsive eater.

I dunno, I love eating. I just had a Pb+J to hold me over til dinner in about an hour. It was really good.

I want to learn some finance stuff I think. Because at work people mention things like 'stocks' and '401k' and 'savings' and I haven't the faintest idea what they're talking about.

In reality, I'm thinking about re-watching the entirety of Lost. That should hold me over.

so dean brown occasionally reads tls.

dear dean brown,

I really want to go to Fordham. Please accept me. I will bake you cookies (and I make AWESOME cookies) every single day for the entirety of 4 yrs of law school. And after that, when I graduate and get an awesome job because of my equally awesome Fordham JD, I will bake you cookies twice a day.

I will study 100 hours a day (I want Fordham so bad I will add hours to the day) and be at the top of my class.

Please want me.

Sincerely,
Goosey

Wow - this thread blew up today. While I'm not going to lie, I was hoping for some acceptances for the regulars, congrats to the new admits! Join up over in the Fordham 2013/2014 thread.

Pulling for the rest of you! When you guys get in, we should have a party. No joke.

My status checker did not change- still waitlisted

So be happy, maybe the disappearing status checkers mean acceptances are near. Each day that passes without an acceptance means there's a greater chance tomorrow will be the day :)
