I honestly have no clue...just know she got one. She spent the deferral year doing basically nothing so its not like she did teach for america or something compelling like that.

i had my heart set on moving to NY, these darn east coast schools have been silent. at this point, i'm looking at a scholarship from U of I, but I would seriously consider Fordham (despite the lower rank) if they would just let me know already. i haven't heard from NYU (just waiting for a rejection letter) or cardozo (when faced with a T25, i'll take u of i). fordham really really needs to come through....

can't see myself living in bumblefuck, illinois

You should have told me this ages ago. When I worked at the nazi foreclosure law firm I learned how to get around this. We would have fixed you.

I honestly never tried it until the other day because I had my ipod, but my boredom took on a whole new level on Friday. It was more of a hardware issue than a network blocking since the computer I use most at work is more or less half of a computer that I use to VPN to a real computer at my desk.

Yeah that was my situation as well. a dummy computer. annoying and I don't see the point, but whatever.
so did you have to figure out how to flow the real computer's sound to the fake one? it's just one little click in the sub-login window!

They seem accomodating. I might need to defer at the eleventh hour and DB told me it could be done if necessary. My reasons are highly persuasive, though.

Ha nothing that complicated, I just had to remove the sound output from my real computer and bring in a set of speakers for the fake computer. The only thing that sucks is that the network sucks, so every few songs it starts to skip or crashes out and has to re-sign itself back in to keep going.

So, I haven't been frequenting this thread for some time —expecting a waitlist. Does anybody here know if there is an absolute deadline by which Fordham thinks it will have decisions? Example: UNC says everyone knows by May 1st.
Will I have a JD before I hear a response?

Applicants whose files become complete (i.e., their LSDAS report is received by the Admissions Office) prior to February 1st should be notified of the admission decision on or before May 1st.

Applicants whose files become complete after February 1st cannot be assured of receiving a decision prior to the end of May.

Long story short, there is no concrete, specified date.

Yes, but it will change on your status checker beforehand.

My current plan IS GW. If in off Fordham WL then I will consider them.


Brooklyn's offer is pretty tantalizing, but I'd still go with GW since it's a much stronger school and you don't seem too tied to staying in NYC. . .


That's what I'm thinking too. But holy crap, only having like 30k or less of debt when I'm done would be amazing. Plus my 30k from undergrad, of course. I like NYC because my boyfriend is from Westchester, but DC to NYC is easy for when we're on school breaks...


Ah, I'm stuck in NYC, with numbers that got me waitlisted at Fordham and the same offer at Brooklyn. Fordham just doesn't give out very much money*, so even if I get in off the waitlist I'm 99% certain that it's still Brooklyn $$$+$ for me.

*Long term I think this going to hurt Fordham's rankings... they just can't afford and/or won't buy LSAT and GPA scores. Just go to Law School Numbers, rank applicants by LSAT, and look at the numbers that pop up. Or ask current students. Disclaimer: Rankings aren't everything, blah blah blah, Fordham will cut it's PT in half, yadda yadda, I will be at BLS, blah blah who cares I'm just bored at work, blah, etc.

I still haven't heard a peep from Fordham about financial aid. Schools can't expect you to be able to accurately weigh a decision if you don't know how much it will cost you!

They will let you know the costs, AFTER you put your deposit down. They say to let them know you are serious. What???

I DID put a deposit down haha! It's like they're encouraging multiple deposits, b/c at a school so expensive(esp for it's ranking and due to it's location) it's hard to make a decision without being able to take cost into account.

Dear Fordham,

I'm willing to pay full tuition. Love is blind to debt.

<3
e2f

PS - how was everyone's weekend?

I was really excited for Sunday because I had a whole list of things I was gonna get done, then my friend called and asked if I wanted to go to the Sox game, so I eschewed the idea of being productive in favor of getting drunk on a Sunday afternoon.

Edit - does my desperation make me less attractive?

Dear Fordham,

If you got e2f's letter, make a copy, scratch out e2f, and write "rtl." Please include this copy in my file. Thanks!

I had a great weekend watching the Caps lose game 5. Hopefully game 6 ends in similar fashion.

I initially read that and thought you had said "I spent the weekend watching Cops season 5" and I was like "Dude, you're my hero."

If we both get into Fordham, we should spend a weekend watching Cops Season 5.
