Nischay, you bring up an interesting point.
I originally applied to the full-time program. I am considering, in my appeal, saying that I would consider part-time as well (I do have better odds, after all). But to be honest, if I enrolled in the part-time program, I would transfer to the full-time the first chance I got. That doesn't really seem fair, I think. Wouldn't I be taking the spot of someone who NEEDS to go to to school part-time?
I spoke to an admissions representative from Fordham this weekend at a law forum. She said that most PT students at Fordham do elect to switch to the FT program after the first year and it was rather common.
I wouldn't think of it as taking a spot away from someone else, rather maximizing your chances of success in pursuing your dreams.
