<<< I have nightmares about just this scenario... I've done the WL thing before, for UG. Sure I got into my top choice eventually, but it was hell. So not looking forward to the prospect of dealing with it again for LS. :(

Any suggestions for someone like me (3.4, 168)? My dad went to Fordham for his UG, so I've always been really pro-Fordham and could really see myself happy there!


My suggestion is that you're fine with those numbers. They're a good bit higher than what I had. (Granted, I am a PT student. I had a 164/3.63 --->3.37, knocked down by LSAC due to improper withdrawals when I was ill my junior year.) People said my numbers were fine, but my major complicated things. I ended up being the first fashion merchandising major accepted at Fordham in recent memory. Anything is possible, and do not let people tell you otherwise.

Being waitlisted is impossibly hard, and I won't bore you with my story. It took me five and a half months to get in, but I never gave up, and I never for a moment believed I could go anywhere but Fordham. :mrgreen:

Your numbers make you competitive if you apply ASAP. Hopefully you have done so already.... Do NOT sit around waiting for LORs. DB doesn't really care about them. My only other piece of advice is to read the dean interview, and go visit!


Thank you. That's really helpful, and reassuring! I'm having a really hard time with this whole "sit back and wait" thing, especially with Fordham because I could really see myself there. It's my second choice after my "pie-in-the-sky, Hail Mary" T14 ED school - I'll be absolutely devastated if I don't get in. Seeing other people who applied and went complete the same day as me getting in and my status stuck at "complete" is making me a nervous wreck! Makes me think maybe they saw something else in my application they didn't like! :(

Hmm. Fordham's status checker is down again. More decisions on the way tonight, perhaps?

Ha ha, yes. Mine was down for a bit and I was truly hoping that there would be a surprised update...alas, when it came back up no such surprise.

Fordham, AdComms...please just accept me and all the other TLS people in this forum.

Friday actually seems like a great time, especially because next week is a holiday week and then they can just be like "Hey, congrats bunch o folks, we're gonna peace out next week and eat turkey"

But you know, maybe I am just being optomistic. :)

Another person with same exact stats...granted I went complete on the 16th. I'm hoping all this hopefulness that I'm building up won't lead to dissappointment.

I sent my app in completed on Monday and haven't heard anything yet... should I be worried that I don't even have a status checker yet? Or did you get one a while back and you just went complete?

IIRC I was complete when I got my status checker, I only got it a few days ago. I sent in my app on the 11th I believe? Which means it took about 5 days to get my status checker.

Has anyone who applied to the PT prog heard in this cycle yet? I submitted before the EA deadline and was complete 11/2 and haven't heard anything yet. Is that a bad sign or no sign?

I'm going to be a pessimist and say the week after Thanksgiving.

Getting my hopes up and crushed nearly every day is killing my morale.

Hey Beebs - did you used to have a Martha/Tiger Tar?


Yes, I did. It was time for a change.
