Extra Curricular Information

DECISION TIME

EDIT: I got waitlisted at NYU. What a shock. Now I play the waiting game...If I don't get in, I'll go to Fordham.

Made the decision to attend Fordham Law. I really loved it when I visited and you can't beat NYC. I haven't heard from NYU but I doubt I'll get in and they probably won't match Fordham's generosity with money. So, I'll be at Fordham Law this fall and happy with that choice.

Extracurriculars

Dean's List all semesters
Studied abroad full year at University of Oxford, England
Presidential Academic Scholarship Recipient
University Hearing Board: University Justice
Admissions Council for Multicultural Recruitment
Election Reform Coalition: Board Member for 5 years
Invited presentations and speeches on voting rights and civic education
Fully bilingual

4 LORs: 2 professors, 1 supervisor, 1 law professor (Board colleague)

Scholarships are total for 3 years

Hey! Congrats on Fordham! I recently visited and thought it was fantastic. It had a very friendly atmosphere and student body. I'm sure you'll love NYC, although DC must have been wonderful. Congrats on the scholarship, too!
