Fordham is able to see potential in applicantsFeb 04 2012Finance
Fordham is able to see potential in applicants. I received only a cumulative hs gpa of 3.2, but because i had strong gpa's my junior and senior year (3.8-3.9) and received a 30 on my act, i was accepted. Do not worry if you are not smart enough to apply, just go for it and it Fordham feels that you will be successful here, you'll get in.
ACT: 30 Male
The Lincoln Center campus is more competitive to getJan 18 2012English
The Lincoln Center campus is more competitive to get into (there is less housing available therefore they cannot accept many students) than Rose Hill. More is expected out of LC students. If you want to get into the school, but are unsure if you will get in; apply for the spring semester. I applied in the spring semester and got accepted after being denied last fall.
SAT: 1500 Female

Study till your brains come out your ears and pray to God you get to take Father D. Best experience EVER...! GO FORDHAM!
Pretty typical of any collegeSep 02 2011Biology
Pretty typical of any college. Solid SAT scores, grades, extracurricular activities, etc and you'll be good to go. Fordham is very interested in its students being involved in community service, so I would say a history of community service would definitely be beneficial if you have average grades and/or SAT scores.
SAT: 1260 Male
I believe things have changed, since I was ableApr 30 2011English
I believe things have changed, since I was able to have a face-to-face interview. That most likely helped me over the hump. My grades were B+ in high school and my SAT's were pretty good but I believe the interview really helped.

I would make some calls to several individuals. See if you know someone who knows a teacher or better yet a Dean.
SAT: 1180 Male
