You shouldn't worry if you do end up on the WL. I actually think it's a form of YP, a way of letting me know I won't be getting any $ while letting the rest of my cycle play out. Looking through all the LSN apps that were either WL/rejected or WL/accepted the last few years, there were no 170+ on either list, meaning we usually end up going elsewhere. So I still like my chances of getting accepted further down the line if I don't withdraw first.
Hm. Well if you're right, it looks like it's also a way of avoiding giving us scholarships... how often do they accept someone off the WL then give them money? It'll all be gone by then.
I sent a diversity statement to my reaches. I contacted admissions and they said it wasn't too late to add a document to my file at this point. Should I send it to Fordham or will it hold up my app?
Given Fordham's, uh, frugal reputation to begin with I'm definitely not counting on any money being available to me, no. You should ask the adcomms about whether adding to your file will lose your spot in line.
Sorry to everyone who got WL'ed today. They have gotten deep into it the last couple years and it looks like they're pursuing a similar strategy this year, so it's definitely not a soft ding like some other WLs.
