I still have nothing... what does it mean
i saw on reddit that some people have gotten accepted off the wl already... if its true thats wild they would do that before giving everyone an inital decision on their application
I think that post you're referring to is from for years ago.
nah there have been recent posts about it, and even some reported here on lsdlaw
which is wild to me
why make your deadline 3.15 if your planning on filling all your seats well before reviewing applications that came in feburary
feels like it should have been a 2.15 deadline
dude where are they i cannot take this waiting game anymore!!! crazy they're taking people off WL apparently and i have not yet received an initial decision. this is painful.
@HugeSlowSatyr: bro this is likely untrue. they put a deadline of 3/15. and it says in their process that they need 8-10 weeks.
idk i hope its not true but ive seen multiple posts from people that atttended the WL zoom that this was true, and multiple posts of people WL >A. Again, self report, so interpret it how you wish, but seeing several of them makes me nervous that its true.
I called them a week or two ago and they said its more like 10-12 weeks, they also have 10-12 weeks listed on a different page on their website, which is frustrating that they dont have that adjusted on every page on the website. Just a bit sloppy for a prestigous instution like fordham imo
but again, this information (regarding WL Zoom and WL>A) is all from reddit and lsd.law, just something to keep in mind
