based on LSN, id say moderate admit. definitely not reject.

edited to add moderate because thus far, no one with those #s has been WL or rejected but some people last year were WL


In that case, I may allow myself a little hope and become a regular here :P

See the problem is, I have class on Thursday. Where I live, they never plow! So I'll be trekking to class, on my one hour commute, in a foot and a half of snow, so miserable!

and where I live they only shut down if the state starts complaining. So my 15 minute commute would become a 1.5 hour commute. And I'd be very grouchy, as being late for work does that to me... almost as much as the walk from/to the parking lot and the cleaning off of the car does.

I already have to take the state's most dangerous highway, and as much as I enjoy a good snow storm, I could do without the extra hassle.

On the other hand, I do have a lot of Netflix / DVR to catch up on...

That's what they're saying. I live in an outer borough and I should be completely snowed in for a couple days. Gotta head to the grocery store!

We're supposed to get up to another 10 inches in DC starting tomorrow afternoon. I'll take the time off work, but man, I really wish this admissions thing would speed up!

Rocky! Happy Monday! I know - when I lived in DC a 1/2 inch would shut the city DOWN... you guys must be going crazy!
I promise if we're all snowed in, I'll come up with a ton of amusing quotes to keep us NOT thinking about admissions, K?

Sounds great to me! I miss living in NY where this kind of snow would be cleared off my town's streets within a day.

Man, the more I visit this thread, the more I miss NY.

TY! Let's hope to hear something from Fordham soon!

One question: does the status change to "decision rendered", or something like "accepted" or "rejected"?

If its the first, do they call or send out a letter?

"Watchmen," by Alan Moore. It's my first graphic novel and I was impressed. Really, really dense and interesting story. Before that I read "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" by Muriel Barbery.

I recently ordered 3 law prep books, Catcher in the Rye (never read it believe it or not), and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks which has a VERY fascinating summary and based on a true story!

Status checker will say one of the following things (not sure of exact wording): "Congratulations you have been admitted!" "Unfortunately you have been denied," or "your file has been waitlisted." It first says, "Application Complete." There is no "Decision Rendered" or "Decision Mailed," etc. Straight from complete to whatever the decision is.
