Discussion of Fordham's Admissions Standards:

Fordham University is a selective Jusuit, Catholic university located in the Bronx in New York City. Fewer than half of all applicants to Fordham University will be admitted. Successful applicants tend to have standardized test scores and high school grades that are well above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had high school GPAs of "A-" or higher, combined SAT scores of 1200 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 25 or better. Chances are best for students with "A" averages and SAT scores of 1300 or higher.

In the middle of the graph, you'll notice quite a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue. Many students with grades and test scores that were on target for Fordham University did not get in. On the flip side, note that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because Fordham's admissions process is based on more than numerical data. The university uses the Common Application and has a holistic admissions process. The Fordham admissions folks will want to see that you've taken rigorous high school courses, not classes that were an easy "A." Also, they will be looking for a winning essay, interesting extracurricular activities, and strong letters of recommendation. Finally, although Fordham does not require SAT subject tests, they will take into consideration any scores that an applicant submits.

Fordham offers both Early Decision and Early Action admissions options. If the university is definitely your first-choice school, you'll send a stronger message about your interest if you choose Early Decision since it is a binding choice. Early Decision is an excellent way to demonstrate your interest and improve your chances of getting in.
