Does Fordham give $ off the waitlist?
Do you think Fordham is worth it with a 45k scholarship? So expensive
Esp w COL
11:04

@CumbersomeCaringMoose: 45K a year?
ColorfulThickBullfrog
11:25
50% for GPA and 1% for LSAT gets you money apparently
Should I assume I didn't get a scholarship if I was accepted on 3/25 and haven't heard back yet?
how long after complete date change do decisions come out?

@DailyMomentousBarnacle: we're in the exact same situation! I called and they said it takes 7-10 business days but if we don't here anything back by then to send the financial aid office an email/call!
i think they will have another wave tomorrow I emailed them and they said they would let me know by beginning of week but heard nothing yesterday
Does anyone know if we're required to pay a seat deposit for Fordham before getting a decision for them? Can't find a deadline on their site
@AceAttorneyNaruto: if you don’t have a decision you do not have to pay a deposit. If you get an A after the “official” deadline you’ll be given a new deposit deadline
@IndecisiveLawyerBae: Awesome thanks!
