if anyone on here got a WL >A from fordham, curious on how you got the update? Like was it a phone call, email, or status checker that you heard from first
Called yesterday morning and they said that it was UR, then later that day I got a call back saying I was Accepted. Pretty suspicous timing. I think my application fell behind some desk or something :P I applied at the end of February.
@VenomousInternalPeacock: did you get any scholarship?
I don't know. I was assuming that information would be in the accepted students console but I haven't gotten access yet.
sometimes law schools include the scholarship offer in the package that comes in the mail @venomousinternalpeacock
Had to reach out. No dice on any scholarships. Maybe one of you all on the waitlist will get my spot :)
