I'm real interested in the evening program at Fordham, and according to what I've found online through the lsac, I'm right in the median range for the program (3.4/161). However I come from an undergrad that is pretty low-end. So I guess my question would be this. Based on your dealings with other students in the evening program, how is the diversity as far as undergrad institutions go? Are they all essentially ivy-league students that didn't make the cut at a lot of other top schools? Or are they from all different kinds of backgrounds? Also, does fordham's evening program have early decision? Thanks for taking the time.
Not to jack Joey's thread, but I'll field this from a FLS day division perspective. There are plenty of Ivy League undergrads in my section. However, I personally come from a mediocre-at-best undergrad institution. My LSAT was a 166 and I applied with a 3.73 (you need higher scores for day division, but these are within the range). I don't know how to explain the prevalence of Ivy Leaguers here... but I can tell you that undergrad institution really won't matter. It might be a split-decision sort of thing where you're pitted against a 3.4/161 from Harvard, but in general it's not going to make or break anything for you.
