You could do what I did, and write them a LEO... Letter of Escalating Obsession.

ROFLMAO - I LOVE that. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I read this in a coffee shop in Long Beach and started laughing so loud that everyone looked at me. So, when I type "lol," I actually mean that I laughed out loud :lol:


I have come to the conclusion that Fordham is the old person school.

I believe the average entering day student is 24, and the average evening student is 25-26. In general, urban schools tend to be slightly "older" than campus-y schools like BC or ND.

True. Personally though, I'd consider median age to be more telling than the average age of what age group makes up a law school. :P

:mrgreen: Yes us young folks like our campuses...

GOOD MORNING, PARTY PEOPLE!!!!
HAPPY MONDAY

Personally, I think we're done hearing anything until next week (cut to: 3 dozen people hearing, today)... so I'll just be over here, enjoying the weather and trying not to think about Fordham at all, today!
:lol:

Well, because all apps are due in by the 1st. At this point, my GUESS (I'm GUESSING here) is that they would wait to put the classes together until after seeing all the apps.

I KNOW - empty net goal!!! I heard some crazy stat about # of shots on goal in that game. USA needs to find an Offense, and quick. :?

Yeah, we got outshot 42-18. And Canada outplayed us most of the game. But if you think about how Canada also had 40+ shots against the Swiss and almost lost that game, you have to think that they're just not finishing.

The game was one of the fastest, most intense I've ever seen...the complete opposite of Fordham's response time for certain members of this forum...

LOLOL (and ya, that's the stat I heard. The shots they're taking aren't very GOOD... but enough of them could really wear down a goalie. GREAT game.)

If anyone is looking for a way to distract themselves, I picked up a copy of Crossfire: The Plot to Kill Kennedy from amazon last week for about $2 used. I read about 200 pages this weekend and I'll be damned if there is much else I'm thinking about. I ordered a few more books on the subject so I should be busy for a while.

JERRY: I am saying that the spit could not have come from behind ... that there had to have been
a second spitter behind the bushes on the gravelly road. If the spitter was behind you as you claimed
that would have caused your head to pitch forward.

ELAINE: So the spit could have only come from the front and to the right.

JERRY: But that is not what they would have you believe.

For everyone waiting, hang in there. Not to start a stampede or anything but people who have been waiting an extraordinarily long period of time to hear something may want to call. I had been complete since 10/19...the 12/15 EA deadline came and went...I called and was supposed to hear by Christmas...and I finally called last week and they told me I had been waitlisted...even though my status checker was never updated.

I know a while back some people were talking about gyms in NYC....well this resourceful Columbia law student found a way to use the gym at a very reasonable price...

So I visited today. The admissions office looked up my file and told me that I'd have a final decision no later than Monday. I guess it helps to visit. We'll see.

How did everything go? Did you like the campus? So much for not checking your status checker for Lent...

Good to know, Kim!
This also dovetails with my thought that they will be finalizing decisions end of this week/this weekend, with the closing of the applications window.
