A bit surprised that it has not been created.
Has anyone heard any decision from Fordham?

Hi!

I received an answer before Christmas but I think I will change my mind as I have been admitted at Cornell (I could not imagine that). But my application to Fordham was complete really early (in November).

Good luck :)

Yes it took approximately one month. One month also for Cornell but for Cardozo it was two months (even if it is not a big school) so I think it really depends of the School and maybe they did not have too much work when I sent my application. I am still waiting few answers from other schools but I know that it will not work as I have seen many good profiles rejected and I am not convinced that mine could be better.... But Cornell is great! Did you make other applications?

thanks for answering ! kind of weird coz fordham said a month and georgetown 6-10weeks ( and it is 9 weeks for GT and more than a month for fordham..)
But like u said they have many applications to deal with those days..
Cornell is great of course i did not apply but i would have been there if were accepted !
Yes applied to west coast GT and NYU nothing yet ..

Hi tgrimaldi!

I'm not sure you are talking to me.... If you wrote about Fordham, I had no mean to check my status. Neither for Cardozo. But concerning Cornell there is the same system as Berkeley and I received the email with the username and password just after sending the application but it was not immediately complete. It took about two weeks.

Thank you both for your answers.

how long did it take to receive Fordham's email stating that your application was complete (from the moment you submitted your application)?

I am still waiting for Cornell, but just received admission from Northwestern...

good luck to you all!

It took one month but they had some problems to get my credentials from LSAC and then I directly sent my recommendation letters so I think that my file has been considered as complete the day they received the letters.
But I sent the application soon (in october) so I think they were less busy than now....

Good luck !

Apparently Fordham does not follow a completion order to evaluate applications.
I have applied on December 31 through LSAC (but sending via regular mail my recommendations on January 4), I never received any completion mail from them and I received an admission offer yesterday.

I applied on Fec, 08 and still nothing. Not even an email saying they have received my application.

Do you think I should send them an email?

Has any of you tried to contact them by email?

I applied early december and it is complete since January 4th, i have sent an e mail and have been answered the following :

"Your application is still with the admissions committee. Due to the volume of applications being reviewed at this time, it is not possible to determine when you will receive a decision. Thank you for your patience."
