Hey everyone, just wanted to say that I am selling math textbooks for WAY cheaper than the Fordham bookstores are. I just graduated from Fordham in May and I have no more need for these. I'm selling them on ebay just to make transaction stuff easier, but if you come pick the book up from me I will refund the 3.99 shipping costs. I'm still at Fordham, but in graduate school for the ethics program so I am around both campuses. Here's my site incase you are interested. I used all these books for Fordham classes and they're all in like new condition. Thanks!

Here's the website: http://myworld.ebay.com/dothewhirlwindx
(ps, all the books are the hardcover US version, not international editions.)

Email System Jun. 5th, 2010 @ 11:27 am

I have recently enrolled at Fordham as a grad student and am trying to access my student email account. I am logged into the my.fordham.edu portal, however there are no links to student email "on the top right of the portal" as the email redirect page states. Can someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!!

Looking for a Place to Live Mar. 26th, 2009 @ 06:47 pm
Hey all,
I'm a senior at SUNY Purchase up in Westchester, but I'm graduating in May. I'm going to Grad school in Manhattan, but I'm still working up here all summer so I'm looking for place to rent or sublet in the Bronx. I don't live down there so I'm having a little trouble finding places. I was wondering if anyone knew of a place or was looking for roomate or had any advice they might to be able to give me. I'm looking to start paying the 1st of May so I'm running out of time (eek!).

Any help you could give would be SUPER appreciated! You can comment here (though I might forget to check it) or email me at beth.scorzato@purchase.edu or find me on Facebook (same name, Beth Scorzato)

Thank you Fordhamians =)

Prospie questions... Aug. 18th, 2008 @ 01:44 pm
I know you guys are probably really tired of these posts, but I have a few questions as a prospective student. I want to attend Fordham at the Lincoln Center campus.

1) What was your financial aid package like? I'm expecting to have to take out tons of loans, and interested to find out how you guys financed your Fordham educations. My family is very low income.

2) What is the Communications and Media Studies program like?

3) If you've already graduated, what are you doing now?

4) What is the neighborhood like?

Thank you for answering my questions. :)

Oh, and if anyone has pictures of the dorms (other than what I've found on the school website) I would love to see them. I'm not expecting to live in a palace and I'm REALLY good at killing roaches, so don't worry.

Hi guys, I'll be doing work study in the fall and I was just wondering what kind of jobs do you recommend?

[edit] forgot to add that I'm at Rose Hill campus.

some prospective student questions Jun. 18th, 2008 @ 02:20 am
hey guys!
i'm a high school senior who's been thinking of applying to fordham for about three years now, and my time has finally come to begin applying!
so, i have a few questions that i hope you guys can help me out with.

1. i'm planning on majoring in communications and media studies (radio/television concentration) and i was wondering if there was a theatre management minor? i was looking on the theatre part of the LC website but couldn't find anything besides acting and directing.

2. if it's not too personal, what did y'all write about for your college application essays?
i'm obviously not looking to steal any ideas, i'm just curious about what type of essays they seem to go for.

Hey all,

I just got my GSAS registration packet in the mail today and was wondering, what is the normal courseload for a graduate semester? Three course? five?


Quick question! May. 19th, 2008 @ 09:47 am

I transferred out of Fordham a couple years ago and some of my transfer credits are pending. The school I am at now says that they need a copy of the syllabus in order to evaluate the two courses. They are regular freshman courses. My question is, does anyone possibly have a copy of a syllabus for either of these two courses? It doesn't have to be the same time I took it because the courses don't really change much. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Hello! I just found out that I got into the graduate school at Fordham, and I' am incredibly excited because it was my top choice.

That said, if there's anything I should know that I won't find out from any of the official mailings, I'd love to hear it.


Apr. 25th, 2008 @ 01:37 pm
So basically, I'm applying to Fordham LC as a transfer. My application is really close to being finalized. I'm just cleaning up my entry letter and making everything shiny and pristine.

The only thing I'm worried about is my GPA. It's in the 3.2 to 3.3 margin. No SAT scores because I have more than 2 years in college. I'm applying as a communications major with a concentration on journalism. I've spoken with members of the faculty, including Professor Elizabeth Stone, and I've acclimated myself with the school newspaper (which is excellent, to anyone who belongs on it). I have a lot going for me as a journalism major as I have plenty of experience in the field of journalism, and I'd say I have a B+ to A- average, but I'm very, very nervous about the GPA thing.

So what are my chances of getting in? Also, to anyone in the communications department, what are the pros and cons?

Shanghai Apr. 6th, 2008 @ 04:37 pm
Hello Everyone

Did you know SUNY Purchase, has a study abroad program to china this summer?
Well right now the program needs more students and are still accepting applications from anyone interested, even from other colleges.
You should read over all the cool stuff involve, and wikipedia fudan university and take a look at how beautiful the campus is and you can earn eight credits.

The program is also not as expensive as most programs to china plus for a week before the start of school its will be traveling and site seeing while staying at hotels. 

Courses offered include Chinese Language, history, Calligraphy, Philosophy, Race and Gender, and political science.

BONUS as long as you have a two point gpa and above, a few sentence long recommendation from a prof, you should get accepted right away because they really need people. So Extremly minimal risk of rejection! So whos in? or interested? Please apply right away, today even?

Check it out, apply online!

Summer Program in Shanghai, China

June 28 - August 4rd, 2008

The Purchase College summer program in China is located in Shanghai, the leading city and center of modernization which has made China a leader in the 21st century. New China can be found in the superb museums, galleries, dramatic skyline, exciting night-life, outstanding libraries, and world-class shopping and dining possibilities.

Shanghai still retains old China as well. Exploring the alleys and smaller byways, students can discover the culture of ancient China still resonant in the bird-and-flower streets, the sidewalk chess games, the tiny stalls, shops and markets, and the rich life of past and present. The program includes a week long tour of locations of historic and cultural significance as well as four weeks of study on a renowned Chinese university campus.

Is anyone else having serious trouble getting into their Fordham email account? Yesterday it was freezing and not even letting me log in, and now I'm getting an authentication failed message even though I typed in the right username and password.

Oh, Fordham technology...

Spring 2008 Jan. 11th, 2008 @ 01:01 pm
 Hi everyone.  I need help....

-Does anyone know how I can audit a course?
-Let's say I want to register for a course, prof. says it's ok, but the course itself is overenrolled. is there any chance I can take the course as an independent study? What exactly is the process of securing an independent study?

Seeing how classes start Monday, I know I may not be able to do any of the above. But my schedule got all messed up at the last sec, and I'm clutching at straws right now.  Thanks.

This might be the wrong place to ask this, but it's worth a shot!

I'm currently a freshman at Rose Hill and I'm considering transferring to another school for fall 2008. I'd rather not get into the reasons at this time; for the most part, I still love this school, but I just don't think it's where I belong.

Does anyone have any experience transferring OUT of Fordham? Does anyone have any experience with transferring, period? I'm just trying to get the gist of this whole process and figure out if it's worth it.

Thanks for all your help and I hope everyone's having a lovely, unstressful Reading Day, haha.

Dec. 10th, 2007 @ 08:30 pm
This is a totally stupid question, but I saw a letter posted in the Plaza (Lincoln Center, obviously) today that said one of the students was arrested in November for homicide. Anyone know what happened?

transfer Nov. 18th, 2007 @ 04:40 pm
Hi guys. I'm seriously considering transferring to Fordham(Lincoln Center Campus) for Fall of '08. Does anyone have any advice or little known info about financial aid, housing, or just general treatment of transfers?
Also, does anyone know if I apply earlier(like early '08 as opposed to near the July 1 deadline) will I have a better chance at getting in, getting money, etc?

Nov. 6th, 2007 @ 07:54 am
When I tried registering for classes on Oasis, the site said I couldn't register for one because it would exceed maximum credits, but the thing is with that class, the credits would equal 18 and I am currently taking classes which total to 18 credits. Anyone know how/if I can fix this? Thanks in advance.

Quick Question.. Oct. 3rd, 2007 @ 08:52 pm
Does anyone know when the spring coursebooklets are available/are usually available?


Dance classes Aug. 31st, 2007 @ 04:46 pm
What do I have to do to take an intro dance class for non-majors at Lincoln Center if I am a Rose Hill student (sophomore)? I would like to take either DNLU 1311 (Ballet I for non-majors), DNLU 1331 (Modern Dance I for non-majors) or DNLU 1361 (Body Conditioning I for non-majors). Do I have to audition, and whom do I have to contact if I want to enroll? OASIS says you need department permission. As far as personal information goes, I did take dance classes from the time I was 4 till about age 11, and I'm still in pretty good shape. Am I missing anything else?

Also (less important), if you've taken any of these classes, what did you think of them?

Thanks in advance!

SAT/ACT and GPA? Aug. 27th, 2007 @ 05:17 pm

Hey everyone. For all of you who were accepted, what did you get on your SAT or ACT? Also what was your GPA? I'm applying this fall and my SAT score is a little lower than what I'd hoped. It's in the lower range of what Fordham is looking for. I just wanted to know if there was anyone else who had a really strong GPA, extra curriculars, etc but didn't have a SAT score and still got accepted? Thanks if any of you can help :)

Prospective Student Aug. 10th, 2007 @ 03:09 am
Hello, I'm currently a junior in high school, and Fordham is basically my dream school, so you're gonna be seeing a lot of questions from me over the next two years.

sorry in advance.

Now, my first question is that I live in Florida, and my school down here requires that we have at least 40 community service hours to graduate, but a lot of people go above and beyond and get at least 250 for the silver chord.

First, do you guys have to do service hours in New York?
Second, how important is how many service hours you have for getting into Fordham?
like, do they look at that at all? will it help having a crazy bunch of hours?

Also, how important are extracurriculars?
I'm very active in my school's drama department, and because of that don't have time for basically any other clubs.

and finally, is it better to get Bs and Cs in APs or take the As in honors?

Sorry if these questions seem kind of... stupid, but these are the things my guidance counselor tells me, and i can't help but wonder if they're true for any college other than UCF/FSU/UF.. plus i'm kind of nervous about getting in since i'm from out of state.

Thanks in advance.
