Cornell interview & Scholarship negotiation

Postby lc0626 » Wed Mar 25, 2015 10:21 am

Hi guys!

I have two questions:

1) I got an interview request from Cornell Law, which I'll do through the online interview. (They have this weird online interview system where it seems like I'm supposed to record my answers to questions that come up on the screen.) Has anyone interviewed this way? What kind of questions did you get?

Also, I read somewhere that Cornell interviews for the YP purposes, but what does that mean? Do they interview applicants who seem to be likely to go to other schools even if they get into Cornell? I've got into Columbia, UChicago, and NYU, but I still wanna do well at this interview. Do they ask anything like to which schools I've got into? Urg that'd be so awkward..

2) As I previously mentioned, I've got into Columbia, UChicago, NYU, and I've also got a 120k scholarship offer from UCLA. Would CCN match the scholarship from UCLA? Or would they not consider UCLA a peer school and refuse to match it? I haven't yet heard from CCN about any scholarship offer, but I'm wondering if I should bring it up to them as soon as possible. (Because the deposit deadline for UCLA is the April 15th.)

Thanks in advance!

1. Check the Cornell applicants thread. Plenty of discussion about the interview

2. No. Ccn almost certainly won't match a UCLA offer. Maybe they'll toss you something for your efforts, but nothing near 120

1. I hadn't recognized there were applicants threads for each school! Thanks to your comment I've went through it all. Thank you so much. Now fingers crossed.

2. Yea I figured.. I guess I should hope to be able to negotiate offers between columbia uchicago and nyu. Does anyone know if I may bring it up to them before they give me the initial scholarship offer? I'm afraid it might pass the deposit deadline if I wait, but I'm also worried it might be rude to bring it up too hastily.

Thanks!

I got into NYU and UChicago (held at Columbia), but if you do get into Cornell, I imagine that they'd give you a decent sized scholarship.
