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.

Wow, that's surprising.  And scary for us 3.4 GPAs.  Hang in there and good luck.

EDIT:  And now that I look at LSN, I'm even more surprised.  3.4/168 gives you a 3.3 Admissions Index at Fordham.  In the 04-05 cycle, 3.3s were admitted at something like an 80% rate.  I think you'll get in despite the Hold.

just got the letter home today for that also...does anyone know if this is a common response for people who apply this early or is this basically a polite way of saying "look elsewhere"?

i would guess it's just because we applied so early. i didn't look into what they did last year so i'm not really sure, though.

People have posted that they've recieved rejections, so it could be worse. Fordham was a reach for me so I'm just happy I haven't been rejected yet. I don't expect to get in.

That may be what Fordham says, but it certainly isn't the impression the LSN data gives.
