I assume this means everyone whose application they haven't seen yet is getting rejected too?

update: Fordham will in fact close down next year for renovations and will admit no incoming class. Further details after I floss, just thought you all would like to know.

ehhh, i lived in nyc my whole life, and i would never tolerate grime. not saying that fordham is grimy, because i didn't particularly notice that, just a little run down, but grime is not really part of city living...


Wow. I honestly didn't notice "grime" or anything on Saturday, but man this conversation has been going on a long time! IDK, maybe I just have lower standards, but the place just seemed old and worn in to me, not dirty?

I assume this means those of us who applied late (complete 1/29) don't have much of a shot. oh well

It's really why I put "grime" in quotation marks. I don't think it's grimy at all, but people have differing opinions. I took my best friend to a restaurant on the UES and she said that "if this restaurant was in DC [she] would have never walked in" and pointed to a small amount of dirt/grime/something on the facade. I would have never thought twice about it and still don't.

Jesus sibley he's clearly talking about their PAST decisions. Nicely done. (Not that I helped matters.)

Lol. Sorry. Delete quote please. Oh you did. Thanks. God. I need an ipad instead of an iPod. Or just a computer.

Most of our decisions now have been denials.  We have lots of offers out and are waiting to see what happens on April 15.  !

I apologize if this has been addressed in the previous pages, but it seems that Fordahm has an extremely deep WL. Does anyone know how deep they typically reach, and do you folks think that the huge # of applicants everywhere means more people being pulled from WLs?
