Tell us what's important to you
I would be very VERY shocked if we don't hear back this week
I applied for a May start
Oh i did fall
Honestly i didnt know they had may start...i wonder if i can switch it
I guess you could always email
I think the May start is cool. You basically split up 1L into 3 semesters. Yeah you take 2 courses in the Summer, but you'll also have 1 less Final than everyone else during 1L Fall and Spring.
leaves opportunity for better GPA maybe
got WL yesterday btw
still no rejections
So confused maybe they don't have so many applicants this year?
cardozo releasing decisions??
is it easier to get in for summer
First rejection
congrats on todays acceptance did you get calls?
yes call
This is the slowest cycle ever my application been sitting there since December lol congrats to everyone tho!!!!!
Yeah im waiting since nov 30th
So I applied to the May program like 3 months ago and haven't heard anything back... How do they expect students to find living arrangements in NYC within such a short time frame. Do you think if I emailed admissions they could move me to fall start?
