My school list is


Fordham

Does ED improve my chances at Fordham? (I really want to go there)


Thanks in Advance

I'd say Fordham is out, even with ED. I had a 3.3, 167 and got waitlisted. Your non-traditional status might help, but in the end it is a numbers game. You should be in everywhere else. I got a full ride to St. Johns and significant money at Cardozo.

Are you looking anywhere outside the New York area?

Thank you, and unfortunately, I have two young children that preclude my attending any schools outside the NYC area. It looks like Connecticut for me. I live in the state and get a discount. I honestly had my heart set on Fordham. This is sobering.

You should still apply. If you look at the LSN graph:

There are a lot of waitlists in your numbers range. I personally didn't care enough about Fordham to put in the effort, but if you get waitlisted (and I think you probably will, as opposed to an outright rejection) you should do everything in your power to get in. Send letters, visit, talk to admissions and see if you can work your way off.

It isn't unheard of to get off the waitlist and don't let what I said keep you from applying altogether. Good luck!

Thank you for the encouragement. I will work for it, and follow your advice.
