I wouldn't sweat it.

I was accepted to Fordham last week and I'm sitting at 3.93/155/URM

I say it depends. If you are black or native american, you are definitely in. If you are mexican or puerto rican, I say 50/50. Good shot all around though.

Thanks! I submitted my app all the way back on the last day of November. I haven't heard anything about scholarships yet. For my other acceptances I received separate contact about scholarships. Not sure how Fordham does it.

Good luck!

I was accepted at Cardozo which was my 2nd choice. I have to reply by april 15 and Im afraid Fordham might not reply to me by then. So im in a real pickle!

Ask them and see if they can hurry it at all. You should be in though. I have 162 and a 3.78 and I was accepted.

Try browsing the 2011 Fordham thread in the "Acceptances, Denials and Waitlists" forum. Other appicants will be able to tell you what the turnaround time on scholarships has been this cycle and may give you a more realistic idea than calling the financial aid office.
