Waitlisted FT: 163/3.83

They're waitlisting like it's nobody's business.

I don't get it, I would think that people with 170+ and a GPA still in the 3.0 range would be practically auto-admit for Fordham. Is this their YP or something/

i think its more or less, they're just waiting to see the entire pool. This year is too different compared to most with so many more people applying...

I guess this is another instance in which I'm happy that my "Application if Complete 11/2" isn't changing

I was just waitlisted for FT w/ 166/3.4. I really want to go to Fordham, so does anyone know what the best next step is? Should I ask them to consider me for PT, or should I send a LOCI and hope to get off the waitlist? :cry:

I've got similar stats (170/3.0x). Can I haz Mich too? Getting WLed at Fordham doesn't seem to bode well for the higher ranked schools. :cry:

I honestly feel like Fordham just lost its mind, people with these numbers have already been getting into other schools, sometimes T14 schools.

+1

I really think they might have gotten a ton of application EA and then another ton in Nov and feel they need to wait until Jan/Feb to make choices.

WL from EA might be their version of deffered since that is basically what they are doing

Not really, Fordham always seems to be tough on low GPA splitters. IIRC they even waitlisted a 180 last cycle (though that may have been YP).

I was just thinking the same things, this is probably their way of deferring all the EA people until they have a better view of the whole picture....seems like it kinda defeats the purpose of EA though....

Hm, since I haven't done this before... What do you usually say in a LOCI? Do you specifically address the fact that you are waitlisted? Is it customary to wait a while before sending one?

Low GPA splitter is just unsafe across the Top 50. It's pretty sweet.

Okay, I get that if you have a low gpa and an LSAT maybe 1 or 2 pts higher than their 75%, then maybe you will get waitlisted...but the 170+? That's kind of ridiculous.

BUT IM STILL COMPLETE and I dont know what that means!

I have very similar numbers and I'm holding my breathe right now hoping I pass this round of WL's
