The world is upside down, but you're in really excellent company (speaking for the above with the rocking stats, not so much for myself)

Does anyone have an idea how much of a death sentence this WL is? It seems like they're throwing everyone and their mother on this thing, I just wonder if we're going to be left to rot or if they actually plan on pulling several people off of it. Any information at all would be GREATLY appreciated :[

Lol, I don't usually hear people say things like "I really do love Jews". Yeah, my buddy goes to NYU, and never ceases to call it NY Jew.

another question for anyone who plans on working while doing the evening classes:

how many hours do you plan on working?

Absolutely. Seems like a HUGE number of seemingly auto-admits are getting WL. Doesn't make sense. The great in/WL button conspiracy!!

Has anyone gotten in off the WL yet? Are they trying to force people to write LOCI's this year to confirm they actually want to attend?

I have a question that I think someone here may be able to answer. It appears from my trolling that current Fordham part time students post here. I was just wondering how many of your current peers have doctorate degrees in the life sciences. I ask because from my networking it it is clear that this group has been applying to law school at high rates since the 80's. All the other hard sciences are in much higher demand.

Thanks

OK, here's what we've got: the Rand Corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people, under the supervision of the reverse vampires, are forcing our parents to go to bed early in a fiendish plot to eliminate the meal of dinner. We're through the looking glass, here, people...

There is no "Under Review" period. It goes from Complete to Decision.
