Fordham FT or PT?

Postby BxNYC » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:20 am

3.22/168 URM

Still in UG so no significant work experience, average softs.

I'm trying to decide if I should apply for FT or PT admission. Right now I think I'm in waitlist territory for FT. If I do apply FT and get waitlisted would I have the option of contacting the school and asking them to reconsider me for PT? Has anyone had luck with this?

Thanks.

I would guess you would be in FT if you wanted it. Apply FT and if you are ok with PT then indicate that (I think you can say whether you're willing to be considered for PT). I still think you would get in FT with those numbers.

in terms of URM boost, probably AA male > AA female > Native American > Mexican > other Hispanic

Thanks everyone. I'm definitely leaning more toward FT now.

I'm also definitely considering aiming a bit higher. Problem is I know my GPA is going to keep me out of T14 and I don't know of any schools in the 20-30 range that place as well in NYC as Fordham.

Your GPA will not necessarily keep you out of the (lower) T14.

167/3.3 URM, Cornell: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/HailtoPitt
165/3.1 URM, Georgetown: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/esq2013
165/3.0 URM, Georgetown: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/fasttrack226

Polish your apps and get 'em out quickly.
