Yeah, I'm on the WL and still just waiting...since mid-February. Not much action for a long while now.

I hope before the end of the month we get to find out, although who knows?

I'm still pulling for you, Lolek!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You and Box and E2F and everyone. :mrgreen:

This makes me feel really great because I got in via phone call today and just can't make it happen to pay the deposit (or, you know, tuition) in the next week, so I asked for a deferral. Maybe they're more lenient about it than they let on?

Is this considered the Fordham Class of 2013/2014 gathering place?

I only ask because I'm in a legal writing/research workshop with one of yalls legal writing professor and he told us he was going to use his memo scenario for the upcoming school year as an exercise for today since none of us are heading to Fordham. I figured I could post it here to help people out if anyone is interested.

Granted! They're sending the contract today- I guess it's essentially an ED contract, but that works just fine for me! Super excited.

I'm still on the waiting list. I told them I'd take part or full time. I know its moving slowly but I saw some people on here saying they've been seeing some movement finally.

anything I should do to up my chances?

Go and visit if you get a chance. Beg and plead (jk). Seems like Fordham likes people who REALLY want Fordham so let them know it without offending their senses.

Paying sticker isn't an ideal situation, but most of the people I've met are really excited about the opportunity to attend Fordham. A lot of money? Yes. A risk for some? Yes. But if you want to go to law school and you want to go to law school in New York City, it ain't gonna be cheap.

How do I FEEL? I feel... AMAZING!! I feel incredibly grateful that I get to go to my Dream School, right here in NYC. I'm grateful for the opportunity to attend the Fordham University School of Law.

Yeah, I feel pretty good about it myself.

I'm working though so loans will be slim to none. Not sure how I'd feel if I were jumping into debt, but I would probably still do it and feel good about it.

As usual, Tesoro says it better than I did. :wink: Yes, I will also be working throughout so my loans are slim to none. But still... I feel lucky.

Ahh I was kind of sad about fordham...but got into a better school at the last minute...fortunately. I don't think my 19 year old age hurt me as much as I had thought. I'm sure it was applying late instead. Send those apps in early! Good luck to all!

I'm still on the Wait List.

Lol...I don't even have anything done or anything if I somehow get accepted. It'll be spur of the moment...I'm getting scared to be honest.

It's August 16th, classes start in 2 weeks. I haven't applied for financial aid because I'm not accepted yet, I haven't done anything...because I simply haven't known anything for months about my situation...

This thread has died down...I'm assuming most people accepted other schools or something.


heh same situation, I called last week and they told me that I would receive some sort of information in less than a week (either way). Well that didn't happen. Still waiting.

Just called and they said they appear to be full, but will have a clearer picture in week
