I would not let a weird Cornell decision worry you. They're being wonky this cycle (I really can't think of another way to put it).

I guess it's better than a flat-out rejection? Lol.

Well, Cornell has been particularly choosy this cycle so I guess that's better than the straight up reject they gave a lot of people lol

So does anyone know definitively where they're going at this point? Or is everyone just kind of waiting for the money to roll in?

Not me. Lol. I applied in early January, and have only heard back from one school.

It's already Feb and it doesn't seem like the URM cycle is going well.

Most of my apps were in by October with a few sent in late October, and of the 13/20 schools I've heard back from, only 4 got back to me before New Year's. Seems like things are moving a little slowly, but I read on some post on here that a slow yes is better than a quick no, right? lol

And yeah, I'm waiting to negotiate scholarships once seat deposits are due and then making final decisions.


Yeah, I am really loving NU so far, but I still have 7 more schools to hear from. It's hard to decide before money lol

I dont think so.
I think theyre a couple of URM's that have gotten into places, but are not posting their info on this site.
I know of some myself and I talked to brininicole about 1 of them in a PM.

It is aggravating, but that is life.

Basically the ball is in Harvard's court. I am already in the Boston area and would love to stay. But I got the full Darrow w/ stipend, so unless I ~love~ UVA or hate Michigan more than I hate taking out 80K in loans I will be there.

EDIT: I applied around thanksgiving and have heard from 12/14 schools I applied to, not including Illinois whose app I withdrew. I have only heard from Michigan, UVA, and BU about scholarship info though. So, as self-centered as this is, my cycle is going fine.

No idea yet. The waiting game for $$ is super real.

The cycle just seems slow, not necessarily bad.

I would *imagine* with the state of the country, diversity and representation in the legal profession is a top priority for schools.

I just got an e-mail from the Democratic Party titled "REJECTED." My heart skipped a beat.

Not cool...

Wow thats rude haha. My emails gets filtered to a folder specifically for law school but that doesn't stop a wayward email from giving me a heart attack every so often.

On the other hand - AA men seem to be doing a little better than AA women this cycle - again this is based on what im seeing in this forum.
