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.

I agree totally. All other schools are up front on ALL the costs.

Hah, we can buy a couple thirties of Natty Lite, and a few boxes of Elio's pizza, then when our significant others (in your case your legitimate SO, and in my case, my Mom) ask what we're doing we can tell them 'studying for Crim Law' but we'll actually just be laughing because who tries to drive backwards down the highway in their underwear?

Did you include that addendum on your app? Or at least the video segment? If that doesn't net you a full ride, I dunno what would. Bonus points if you did it because you got ripped off while buying crack.

And an automatic invitation to law review if you did it while on crack.

Ripped off? Please. It was happy hour, not amateur hour.

*sigh*. And this is why I don't expect to be joining you folks in the Fall. For me, it goes something like this:

Dear Fordham,

Love is blind. I don't care that your facilities aren't as bright and shiny as some others. I love you for what is inside.

But I'm not going into $200k of debt for anything that I can't live in, so please show your love for me in return by wooing me with a bright shiny scholly.

kisses,
PIxie

Accepted off the WL today for PT via phone call. 164/3.7 In addition to being above the medians, I think my visits got me in. I have emailed and met with one of the associate deans a few times, most recently two Fridays ago. However, I did not send an official LOCI (the plan was to wait until I receive my final grades which will push up my gpa a little more).

So anyway, there is some movement going on.

Have any of you sent in LOCIs? If so, what have your responses been like?

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?


Hey, so if I were to send a LOCI that clearly says I am ready to pay full tuition, does that mean they expect me not to be granted any need-based grants? I am 37, nearly broke, and have an EFC of zero. I wouldn't be surprised if schools offer me $20,000 - $25,000 in need-based grants (for total of 3 years of course), but I don't want to wipe out that possibility by saying, "I'll pay full sticker!"
