General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Character and Fitness

Does anyone know if Cardozo does a character and Fitness evaluation in the first year in order to eliminate any potential problems?

Thank you.

Still waiting for Columbia. Decided not to call them yesterday, and placed my seat deposit down at Cardozo...very happy! (and it is not binding) I got waitlisted at NYU yesterday and think that it will be the same or a rejection at Columbia. Thats OK, I am a lonnggggg shot and was happy to be deferred.

Good luck to everyone.
 :D

patty: what school is that? seems like most schools ask for deposits at the end, beginning or the 15th of the month.
cls did say they were going to give out responses to all those held by april 15th. assuming they keep their word, is it too late for you to hear tomorrow? alternatively, you could ask the school requiring the seat deposit for an extension (by 1 day).
i would just be a little wary contacting admissions offices about this, since they already firmly said by april 15. just my 2cents.

It is Cardozo full tuition, so I really do not want to ask them to wait for one more day since the money is guaranteed  :)Do not want to seem ungrateful. I am not sure if the seat deposit is binding and suspect that it is with this type of $$$

Re Columbia: I am wary too...

Suggestions?

I was deferred as well, but I need to put a seat deposit down for another school today. Should I call Columbia and ask if a decision is being emailed today? ???

Thank you for the reassuring words. The truth is, I am half black, so I should not be worried at all, even if someone had a question about it. But your mind starts to turn while you wait for the mail.  :)

My mom is a black woman from Haiti and my dad Italian white. I checked the black box off on apps. I put in my PS that my mom was from Haiti so there is no confusion. I look more white than black. I heavily identify with my moms side of the family...(disowned by my dads family because I was mixed).

Am I crazy for worrying that when I show up at school someone is going to say I am white and take away my admissions?

So I called yesterday, and was told that the person that could answer my question was out, and to call back tomorrow. I saw on another law school board that 3 other people had posted the same thread...so I am guessing that they sent it out to all minority applicants that they have not reached a descion on yet. I will keep you posted if I hear anything else.

I will. Did you get the suggestion to apply for the $ as well? I think it is really strange for a school to suggest applying for a program before they accept you.
