Fordham FT/PT? 167 3.11

Postby Lawannabe » Sat Jan 16, 2010 5:03 pm

Nothing too special about my application. Currently in undergrad, philosophy major, no criminal record, a few good LORs, few years of WE. Only thing of note is that I have a very strong upward trend (4.08) over the last year or so at school. No real reason for the sudden change in grades, just kind of figured it out.

Cornell
Georgetown PT
BU
BC
GWU
Fordham FT
Fordham PT
American
Cardozo
Brooklyn
UCONN
St. Johns
Northeastern


Any advice would be great appreciated, especially with Fordham. I can't decide which program I would be better off sending my application to.

Thanks in advance

It's tough to gauge splitters. The trend this cycle for Fordham has been that splitters are getting waitlisted left and right. I'm not sure you'd have an advantage applying PT or a disadvantage applying FT. You would probably be waitlisted, and be subject to circumstance. If Fordham needs another 167 to preserve a median, you would be admitted. If not, you would be denied.

That's just my 2 cents. Take a look at LSN, most people like you were waitlisted so far.

You can't apply to both Fordham PT and FT?

No, unfortunately they don't let you apply to both schools.

I think you're right though, solely based off LSN it looks like I'll probably get waitlisted at both programs...after that it's really up in the air. I feel that my chances at an acceptance (and not a WL) are slightly better at the PT school, whereas the FT school seems closer to the reach category. I'm leaning towards checking the PT box on the application at this point.

Any other opinions?

OP, you have a stronger chance at PT because of your GPA. A 3.11 is not the kiss of death here, but it will likely give you difficulty for FT admission. You can transfer into the day program, and still graduate in three years. Many of my classmates plan to do that.
