How long did it take you guys to get your status checker usernames and PW? And is there any other way to check on the status of your application (on the LSAC website somewhere?)

Does anyone's admitted student login work? I was admitted on 11/6 and mine still doesn't work. Just curious...

you're in the ball park though in the past year or so they have started to raise PT lsat scores. They really look for people who have a reason (other than back-dooring it) to go to the PT program. How much WE do you have?

took about a week to go complete and get status checker. no, theres no other way to check your app status besides maybe calling them but that not recommended.

Applied 11/2, no notifications since. Should I try and bug them? Or does it take ~2 weeks to get a status checker?

Applied 10/31, complete 11/2 as well. Is there any intermediate status between "Your application is complete" and a decision?

I was also admitted 11/6 and mine does not work either. Has anyone received the acceptance letter yet?

No letter for me. I think I read somewhere that they send out an email with the login and password for the admitted student site sometime after you have been admitted.

Not for me. It went from complete to congratulations.

Congratulations that's amazing!

I went complete on the same day as you, and my app hasn't even switched to "under review" yet from "complete."

I got an e-mail today with an official offer of admission. The e-mail said the admitted students site will be active for us mid-december sometime (they'll notify us)

Don't fret. My status went from "complete" straight to "admitted," without any "under review" period.

Was there an Early Application option on Fordham? Or do they just consider everyone early, as long as it was sent it before Nov 1?

I just realized, the charts at Law School Numbers are Skewed. Most lower end stats that were accepted were for PT programs. There goes my chances with 3.1//168

Yeah, it is hard to tell from the graphs since it does not idicate PT from full time. If you got it in before the 1st, I suppose worst situation you get dinged and still have time to apply for the PT program. You could also get in, you never know what the adcom is looking for.

Limited to NYC; Fordham is top choice


Yeah, it's basically NYC or CA for me and since I just bought an apartment in New York, I kind of am dreading the idea of ever leaving it. :(

Let's all hope for good news soon!

I had a super-vivid dream last night that Fordham waitlisted me. I had to get up and check my status to make sure it wasn't real.

Yep, complete since 11/2.

Despair is setting in.

Don't freak out. My fellow applicants and I have stories we could tell you from last year's mad adventure. Basically, the school is reasonably fast with EA applicants, and anyone who, like awesomepossum, could get into a T10. For those of us with modest numbers who missed the EA deadline, even by a day or a week, things took a lot longer, since the school does things in batches.

I went complete around this time last year, and received my notice of "yay, you get to keep waiting!" on January 23rd, or nine weeks after my complete date. In my case, my numbers were fine, and I had nothing to disclose, but I suspect our old dean was reluctant to admit a fashion merchandising major. It took me five and a half months to finally be admitted, and I spent 99 days on the waitlist.

Other people got in in two to three weeks.

In some perverse way, I'm glad my cycle happened thus: I won't ever take a second here for granted. You can't imagine, and I can't describe, what it felt like to finally see my status checker change to "admitted," five and half months after applying. If I ever win the lottery, I swear by every deity in every holy book that it will be anticlimactic. :lol:

Have patience, take courage, and good luck!
