Hey all,

I was accepted with less than stellar numbers to American's FT program, and rejected from Fordham. I resubmitted my application to Fordham and asked them to consider me for the PT program. Well, should I tell Fordham that I am still interested in attending, and also tell them that I'd be willing to drop my FT seat at American for a PT seat at Fordham? Can I use my acceptance at AU as leverage? Thanks for everyone's input!

Will telling Fordham that I was accepted to American influence their decision in any way? The reasoning that I hope gets used is that since I'm part of the FT program at American, it legitimizes me for the PT program at Fordham. Is this correct? Thanks for everyone's input!

Hey guys,

I'm 1/4 Egyptian, 3/4 Syrian, and  going through a moral dilemma. Although Egypt is in Africa, and most schools that I've contacted have told me that I can identify as AA, is this the wise thing to do? When I think of African Americans, I think of black people (as do the majority of people). However, just because society is trained to equate African Americans with being black, is that reason to discount Egyptians from being part of the African American community? I am certainly not white because I have some natural color, but I am not black either. I would very much like to identify myself as an African American, but I would feel more comfortable doing so with the assurance of others that I'm not just "gaming the system."
