I'm 167/3.7. What do you think of my chances? LSP has me as ADMIT, but it seems like they're getting lots of competitive apps this cycle.

I think anyone who hasn't heard as of yet is likely to be waitlisted unless their numbers are absolutely stellar.

Agreed... back in november they were admitting low numbers, and in tracking this thread from page 1 there was a trend of higher and higher stats being WL throughout. Most seats are probably taken at this point.

That being said, 167/3.7 is the apparent magic number for merit scholarships. So I vote either in, or WL/in, but in either scenario the admit will come with money. I noticed it wasn't uncommon for WL->in fordhamers last year to get money offers throughout the summer.

I'm thinking the very same thing. And why not, I say? I'm collecting waitlists right now, so I need a right-fielder and a short reliever and then I can field a full team.

Does anyone know when waitlisted people will hear anything?

anytime between now and august. But, there's a strong likelihood that a huge WL-> admit batch will occur during the week following 4/15, since that's the first deposit date. Another, smaller batch should occur after the june deposit date as well.

I applied to Fordham the 1st week of December. Didn't hear about an acceptance until about March 12th and that was via email. The acceptance packet came early the next week.

I just got a letter today offering scholarship money, so to answer the question it does not necessarily come in the same letter as the acceptance packet.

If anybody wants numbers I'll share.

I'm a 163/3.5 URM. Do I have a chance at either the PT or FT program?

For sure you do, I think with both. Maybe waitlist full-time, but it's hard to tell...

I was in a similar boat back in 2008, when I first applied to Fordham. I applied about this time too, and I got accepted soon after. I would say that people on this thread are right about MOST people only getting WL now, but you should just wait and see what happens b/c not all hope is lost ... if you're in, you're in no matter when you get that notice.

Plus, even if you are WL, Fordham goes pretty deep into their WL. Good luck!

As I've mentioned, I'm waiting to hear back for the PT program, been complete since 1/12. I was accepted to a competitor school, BC, last week... do people think it is generally helpful to let a school know this? I was thinking about writing an e-mail to the admissions office letting them know I'd been accepted to BC but that Fordham remains my top choice...

I think the general consensus is that it doesn't really help to send any sort of letter of continuing interest unless you've been waitlisted by that school. I don't think that you being accepted by BC will really influence their decision in one way or the other.

I imagine they'll be doing another round of decisions this week, given that the initial seat deposit deadline for most schools is approaching.

hi! i heard about it via snail mail. it came in a separate letter from my admission letter. give it about a week. then i'd say call the financial aid office if you haven't heard anything (as they don't seem to answer emails)... good luck!

Hey Hannah we have similar numbers I was wondering if you called admissions before you got ur scholly or if it just came. I sent them an email last week but no response should I call them. Just got my acceptance letter on friday.

those definitely seem like really solid numbers for the evening program! i haven't been following the part-time admissions as closely, but i think i've read that it's harder to get money if you're in the evening program. OperaSoprano, am I correct?
