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.
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!
