Thanks! I am super psyched! Good luck to you too! I applied to Fordham, Brooklyn, and Rutgers in early/mid September. Then to UIUC, Santa Clara, and Northeastern in early November.

Congrats on Fordham! Did your status go complete before your decision, or just straight to admitted.

Thanks! I emailed Fordham in early October to ask if I was complete. They said there was some computer problem, so they couldn't check, but assured me that so long as I had submitted by Oct 15, I'd have an early decision. Then the admit email last week. So to answer your question, no, I guess I didn't "go complete" before the decision.

I applied last cycle on the very last day. Literally five hours before the electronic submission deadline. Needless to say, it didn't work out.

Well, I applied full time to Rutgers because I figured I wouldnt want to reverse commute from NYC to Newark at night. Also, I was told that Fordham gives very minimal fin aid to PT students so I applied FT there as well... so hopefully I'll get something from them haha! Overall, I just wanted to have several different sorts of options to choose from.

  • Rutgers PT-no money?
  • Sunday, March 23 2008 at 01:03 PM

I see that BLS gave you significant $$$ for PT. Didn't Rutgers Newark give you $$$ to come PT? (I am interested in both Rutgers PTand BLS PT, but not at full sticker price.)

Nada. Rutgers accepted me pretty early, but no money.
