Apply early action if you have the grades toMar 28 2015Psychology
Apply early action if you have the grades to do so (it's better to figure this out with your college counselor though). Fordham students on average were A- students in high school who scored somewhere from 1800-2400 on their SATs. Being from a Jesuit high school definitely helps, and anything leadership/volunteer oriented extra-curricular wise will be of help to those who want to get in.

For me, Fordham University was basically a safetyFeb 20 2015Communications
For me, Fordham University was basically a safety. Although most applicants are around my SAT scores, my GPA was higher than the average applicant at a 3.9, with many AP classes in addition. However, Fordham has a high acceptance rate so if you have decent SAT scores, a good GPA, and a well written essay, you will be accepted. I didn't receive any scholarship money until April, close to the time that you need to decide on a school. They gave me a decent amount of money which in the end convinced me to go here instead of other expensive schools. So hold on deciding because Fordham might offer you money. Although it may not be a top school for you, it is still a great university and you can succeed and do well here.

I got an email that my application fee would be waived, so I thought why the heck not. This school really values community work and leadership, so if you've got that you're golden.

I went to a great public school (nationally recognized),Apr 30 2014Undecided
I went to a great public school (nationally recognized), got good (not great) grades, and about a 1900 on the SATs. However, I held two leadership positions in a Model Legislature and Court program, I interned at the American Academy of Pediatrics for four years, I also won multiple awards for positive attitude and community involvement. In addition, I was on two varsity sport teams.
