About how long did it take people who got an email to get an actual letter?

I only heard from them about a week ago so I don't want to call in a panic.

hehe, I thought so as well, so I called :D

The person didn't know when they would start sending out the aforementioned materials. I called about a week ago.

If anyone here hasn't visited Fordham yet, there is a link to some pictures taken recently on TLS.

Here is the link:

Good luck!

Personally, I would chose Fordham if you wanted to do BigLaw in NYC, Fordham places very well in BigLaw in NYC.

I assume that's from the perspective of not being eligible for the T14 schools? If so, I do agree Fordham is a good choice, but it doesn't hold a candle to CLS, NYU, and "the likes" for BigLaw.

Do I have a prayer of getting in FT with a 3.5 undergrada, a 160 LSAT and 1.5 years work experience?


How long as a PT would it take to transfer into the FT program since you're not taking as many credits?
USD 2010

You are taking as many credits, you're just taking some of the during summer instead of having a 1L job from what I've understood.

As for 3.5/160, it sounds like a long shot on FT, depending on how relevant your 1.5 years of work practice is.

once you've applied, can you ask to be considered for PT?

Ok, so I'm thisclose to sending a deposit to Fordham, but when I went to look up how much I have to send and when I realized that I don't think they've sent anything about that.  I've gotten the acceptance letter, a generic book about Fordham and financial aid information, but nothing about how to go about enrolling.  Did anyone else get this information?  I can't even find answers on the Admitted Students' site.  I have to say I'm not very impressed.
LSAT: 164
GPA: waiting for LSAC to figure it out (3.6ish?)
