I got a rejection letter from Fordham today. It was dated May 10. I had been pended there, like all of you, but got into a better school (my opinion) a week ago and decided to withdraw from Fordham. I sent them an e-mail telling them that on May 10, and they replied on May 11, basically saying OK and wishing me good luck. Nothing about the fact that I was rejected. The rejection letter, although dated May 10, was postmarked May 12.

I don't really care at this point, because I'm going somewhere else, but is it possible Fordham decided to reject me after seeing I wanted to withdraw? I was wondering if anything like this has happened to anyone else. It would make them appear to be more selective, I guess. Or maybe it was just a coincidence.

i've heard of that happening before.  maybe it wasn't regarding fordham, but some people here have mentioned it.  if you're curious, try doing a search.

congrats!!!

i didnt put myself on the waitlist and if i dont respond by the end of the week i will not be considered there at all

i know im not going there and i sent my deposit to another school and got my apt for next year it still makes me sad to really officially withdraw since i had wanted to go there SO BADLYand would have gone if accepted

so should i just suck it up and withdraw or should i put myself on the waitlist?
