I had no problem getting in as long asNov 12 2008Undecided
I had no problem getting in as long as your an average student, good essay, average SATs. You'll be fine.
SAT: 1680 Male
Getting in:Sep 07 2008Undecided
Getting in:
Get good recs and write a good essay. My ACT score was a 24, which is pretty bad compared to most the kids at my high school who applied. Fordham is a private school, not a big state school, so numbers don't matter as much. They're looking for a full individual. Make up some extra curriculars if you didn't do any.

I got into the University because I am JewishJul 21 2008Finance
I got into the University because I am Jewish. Fordham is a catholic school and needs to be diverse for statistics. I had very good SAT scores but my GPA was only 3.2 which was way below the average. Just say you are some other religion than christian and your chances definitely go up.
SAT: 2040 Male

Fordham is getting tougher and tougher to get into. Try and establish a personal relationship with your application reader. Also, after talking to my application reader when I was a freshman, I discovered that my essay was what put me over the top.

I had a mid 1300/2000 on the SAT and around a 94 average- these grades seem about average amongst the people I asked. Also, get involved in school and write a good essay!
