Someone recently informed me that my numbers were very high and that this year Cornell is admitting the people with high stats later on and the ones who are around the medians early on, which is different from past cycles.

I was skeptical of it his reasoning too until I looked at LSN and saw that most people who would be auto admits Hadn't been accepted yet, even some who submitted in September.

Maybe they're assuming people with T6 numbers will withdraw before Cornell gives them a decision -- could be acceptance % gaming

Wow--lots of news today! Congratulations to all the acceptances!
:D < me, smiling for all of you.

And damn, apple. You've got all the boys after you. :wink:
In response to your earlier (much earlier, at this point) post, you're right--this thread is pretty spectacular. I hope we all hit it off this well IRL when we're all being awesome in law school next year.

I know it's probably late at night to discuss this question but I'm just wondering:

Is everyone shooting for biglaw or bust? Does anyone have more unique goals (even long term speaking)?

I want to do biglaw but prbly for no longer than 4 yrs. Eventually I would love to end up in house counsel at some tech company in SoCal or the Bay area.

Biglaw -> Inhouse counsel/somewhere that I could realistically become a partner

Only plan on doing biglaw for the experience and "prestige"
