What the hell is going on with Cornell this cycle, and how do they plan on maintaining their class size? It's one thing to try and increase your medians and increase selectivity, but being this unpredictable and unrealistically picky is going to affect their class size. I can only guess that they plan on taking a lot of people off their waitlist later on in the cycle.
You're right. How DARE a school reject someone above both medians. No possible explanation.
