I don't think they deal with one before the other, as both FT and PT people have been accepted, rejected, and WLed thus far.

I'm complete 1/12 for PT with numbers way above the 75th and haven't heard a peep. I believe we have a lot of people here in the waiting room with earlier complete dates for PT who have not heard either. I think they're holding off on making PT decisions because there are quite a few people on the FT waitlist with above PT numbers who asked to be considered for PT. They may look at all of us together.

:(

I need a decision soon so I can negotiate with my job about tuition.

thanks, sibley :oops: i'm pretty sure i'm waitlist-bound at nyu. i'm just trying to be realistic! i'm so antsy about hearing fordham because i would rather go there than cardozo- but it would take some serious $$.

ok now I'M freaking out! ugh! I have no idea if I'll get in or if they'll waitlist me. no one has really comparable numbers, and it seems like they're all over the freaking place with their admittances. WAHHHHHHH. And waitlisted with that GPA, Hannah? I dunno...

and I've just LSN stalked, and it looks like they have hardly waitlisted anyone, and people with your stats have gotten in... though I understand the self-preservation of not getting ones' hopes up.

you're worried about WL at fordham? i don't think they can say no to your LSAT!

and see last year's NYU cycle on LSN...I would be shocked if admitted! and the admits in my numbers range this cycle seem to have pretty killer apps...

Well we'll just have to hope your app has resuscitory powers.... and Fordham waitlisted someone with the same GPA and a slightly higher LSAT than me last year. I don't know why I care... I don't think I can pay full tuition... why does Cardozo's scholly offer have to be so sleazy...

you're going to try to get them to reduce/remove the GPA stipulation, right? i think it's worth a shot!

Yeah... I think that's the best option. My boyfriend keeps telling me to go to the best school I can get into and it's starting to rub off on me. I just hateeee debt. But I also hate stress. And losing my scholarship because of some class that already killed me would be really stressful.

That's funny because my boyfriend keeps telling me to go to the school that gives me the best deal. Wanna switch?

If they do make me take a practice test, I might just stick with the LSAT.



+1

i dont even know how to add and subtract fractions anymore. fail.
im sure its nothing you cant pick up on with a few weeks of review though.

just out of curiousity how does it end up being 28/hr?

i don't remember. they add something else, but i know the end pay becomes $28/hr.

edit for major brain fart

Posting here in case the dean of that other school is tls-surfing... I just emailed him directly. Do you think that's ok? That it'll get to him, that he'll respond? I didn't want to just email the admissions office about it. I know the pres of my university responds to his emails directly... he uses navy blue comic sans ms, size 16.

Can't believe I'm considering taking out 200K in loans if I get accepted to Fordham PT. God help me.

LOL I just emailed school x's admission office asking to be considered for a scholarship, do I have nerve? I think they understand we're absolutely anxious and dying here.

edit to say that i hope they understand :D

Oh, it wasn't for fordham. I am still currently in the IGNORE file. I am willing to pay sticker at Gtown, it would just be nice to get money, so I figured why not try. Worst case they say hell no.

btw, for anyone who has emailed them, how long has it typically taken to receive an email response from the admissions office?

It can't be that much, can it? Plus, you'll probably be working.

I'm estimating about $180,000 in loans total, and that's for full time. 200K seems a little high but not that much higher than my estimate.
