Well, based on what I'm seeing here, looks like Fordham is not being splitter-friendly. Still, waitlist is better than straight rejection, I guess. :cry:

Sorry to hear that. Especially sorry because I'm 169/3.23 and am expecting a decision soon since I submitted Oct. 19.

Man I guess they waited to deal with all the splitters at the same time.

To everyone waitlisted:

I visited with a Fordham admissions officer right before the cycle started. Originally I was planning on applying FT and I was told that my numbers will likely land me on the waitlist (I applied PT instead and avoided this mess). The admissions officer told me that last year they dug VERY DEEP into their waitlist and that being waitlisted shouldn't be too discouraging. The most common reason people withdrew outside of picking a higher ranked institution was financial issues that made them unable to afford the school.

The admissions officer very strongly recommended to e-mail them relevant updates as the cycle continued should I end up on the waitlist. The officer said that people whose names the officer remembers in a positive light are people whose files the officer might be more inclined to gravitate toward as seats open up.

Hope this helps, good luck-

Nope. Reverse splitter and still nothing. Should I just take this as a rejection? Pass the Tequila, someone.


REDACT: should have been more specific. BREAKING NEWS: FILE STILL COMPLETE

Looks like fordham is doing the same as most other schools. They're waiting to see the entire pool before making their decisions...

For early action is it just accept, reject, and waitlist? Or do they defer to regular decision like Cornell does?

I have heard nothing yet, does this mean rejection? My computer is about to break from updating my status checker.

Why doesn't any part of this cycle for any school make any sense?
