I was not rude. She has a right to know that you are on the waitlist for Cornell since you are giving her advise to not pick this school which is a bit of a conflict of interest. People are called out on a regular basis for doing this .
I'll be sure to fully disclose all potential biases before posting next time. I wasn't aware people are called out on that all the time.
I didn't even think about it.
I only said something because you, a third party, are assuming that because a conflict of interest might exist, then it does exist. You also asked me if I was rich and I thought that was inappropriate. Your later assumption that it is ok to call me out on this because other people call others out on this is questionable to me, as well. At any rate, I'm sorry.
I wish the OP luck.
