When I went to the Admitted Student's Day they said they're going to send out a package soon with that info.

Woke up this morning to an e-mail admitting me (FT). I never thought I would get in with a 160/3.3. This is pretty exciting.
Going to as of now...USC or Fordham.

Wow, that's awesome, congrats!  When did you apply?

Do you have any "special" soft factors?

Fordham is one of the schools that asks for your language skills on their application. I speak nine languages (various levels of fluency, but at least intermediate level in each) and can write/read four different alphabets, which is my biggest soft factor.

Anyone else has been waiting forever to hear anything from Fordham? I am starting to worry :-\

I was.  I have similar stats (+/-) to Keelee.  I withdrew last week though.  They were taking too long.

I am actually considering Fordham since I would prefer to stay in NYC, and I am being realistic about my chances at NYU and CLS, so I don't want to withdraw. But I am wondering if there is anything seriously wrong with my application that's making the adcomms hesitant (I decided to be honest and listed all of the higher-ranked schools on the list of 'other law schools I was applying to,' and now I think this may be the reason?).

Even if they waitlist you as YP (which I doubt they will); a simple letter stating your actual interest would quickly put you into the admit pile.
