Fordham DING DING DING!

Fordham DING DING DING!

Just got my ding at Fordham.

I applied for PT in early September, and just now went to check my application status on the website. 

Decision: Denied

Still waiting for my actual letter to come in the mail, unless Fordham thinks i'm not even worth the paper it's written on.

I noticed the "Fordham online status check" thread and so checked my status. I'm with you: Denied. I knew I was an "auto reject" for Fordham, and didn't really want to go there anyway, but it was still my first rejection (the first of many, I think). I will be interested to see if they send a letter, too. When I emailed them 3 weeks ago about whether my application was complete, they were the only school that didn't respond.

So screw them.

sorry :-( i'm expecting the same thing since they apparently emailed a bunch of acceptances earlier this week. When I logged on a second ago though it said last update was on 11/30/05...is this the first you've checked the online status check or did it change for you after 11/30/05...i'm the same that i've been since they put that up...

with a 163, i doubt they'd ding you.  that's a good score, certainly within their 25-75%, and especially if you applied for PT.

good luck

What does this mean? "Pended  (application has been reviewed and a final decision has not yet been made)". Any one else receive this?

Application Received: 09/09/05
Current Status: Complete

I wish they would make up their minds... I'm sure I'll get dinged as well--last year their numbers went up quite a bit, IIRC. Anyway, Fordham, if you're listening, please at least crack my folder... if you get too anxious, you may shut it again and put it away... just crack it, folks. :D

I just checked and I've got the "Pended" response as well.  This is some seriously disheartening news since I know some people have been accepted there already.  I thought a 168 would be good enough for them.  If Fordham isn't biting then I've got 0 chance at most of the other places i applied. 

great way to start the season.

I didn't give it *too* much thought, but I'm 99.9% sure you'll get into USD and with at least a smidge of a scholarship.  At least, that's how I feel based on last year's numbers.

Good luck with all of your applications!
