Also, you should sign up for the official tours at noon on Nov 23rd or Dec 7th. Those are the two I get to lead! I'm really happy they're letting me lead them as a 1L, and it's a huge honor.

Good luck!


Touring Monday at noon. Anyone else in? Perhaps it will ease our nerves - either that, or get us even more pumped about Fordham!


I'm going to tour sometime next week as well. I live pretty close to NYC so I might try and hit 2 schools for tours early next week. Hell, we might even end up on the same tour.

Me too. Any chance we'll find out before January, you think?

I'm my honest opinion, we're probably going to find out in mid-late January. Some may even find out in early February. If I get mine by then, it better be an acceptance. My b-day is on the 8th. My deduction stems from looking at people's profiles on LSN who applied last year at around the same time that we are.

Yes, Full-time applicant, also not a minority in any sense. I was shocked I heard back so soon.

We should clarify that Mexican & Puerto Rican tend to get the true URM boost.
"Other Hispanic" may get a slight boost, but it isn't the regular URM boost.

No, but you can include a Diversity Statement to that effect.

Okay. Now we believe you.
