fordham's c&F question was the strongest version of that question i encountered on any app
lotionmultinationalcorporation
19:08
it was the standard thing about anything on your record but it went beyond and asked about any civil actions you've been involved in

with no exclusions
I got rejected after 9 days. They barley even looked at my application.

where do you all check the status of the app?
pinkprincessxoxo
14:42
i haven't received a status checker email
@pinkprincessxoxo: I had that problem, I had to email an admission counselor named Bibi after 6 days of not getting a status checker
pinkprincessxoxo
11:50
Thank you! How long did it take most folks to hear back? My app is UR2
still waiting ;/ have a good feeling about it though

is anybody worried that going to CUNY is going to severely restrict your job opportunities even if you want to only work in NYC?
@KaputGaudyRag: i looked at alums on linkedin to assuage my fears about this, you're def limited to a certain extent but plenty of people move to non-PI firms/gov agencies

Y'all I think I was rejected on a bias. Yesterday CUNY had an open zoom forum and I spoke to an admissions counselor in efforts to hear about student experience. I have various law experiences and emphasized how I don't know what I am interested in and I'm open to public interest. Today I got the decision
KaputGaudyRag

idk they seem super committed to public interest route so maybe they did get turned off by you saying that
KaputGaudyRag
14:53
but it's also possible that there just might have been a wave
14:08
yes. I wrote in personal statement that I want to work in corporate law field. THey rejected me despite my median gpa and lsat was way higher than median scores.
