Last year it was during the first week of August. You can look at the schedule online but you won't know what section you are in. Section B starts an hour later than everyone else...I have my fingers crossed!

Yep. First week sounds right according to my obsessive scouring of last year's threads for approximate timelines of events. Also, just checked and it looks like the new student site has been updated with 2010 dates, so if that is right it is August 9th that we can expect our schedules. https://support.law.cornell.edu/student ... udents.cfm

I'm actually hoping for section A.

Of course, it doesn't really matter that much to me, but if I was allowed to choose my section that would be the one I pick.

Potential schedules found... B would certainly be nice.

If you would be so kind, could you give me a approximate times of when you did the entrance counseling/promissory note and when you received plus loan approval in the mail? Many thanks!

EDIT: And by times, I actually mean dates.

Got the email, as well. I imagine the printed letter is in the orientation packet they emailed about yesterday.

According to the website, I finished the MPN and counseling July 2nd. And I got the letter a couple days ago, I want to say Saturday.

I'm not planning to get to Ithaca until the day we can move into Hughes, which I believe is Aug 21. Anyone else waiting that long/worried about having enough time to get our shit together before orientation?

I'm not planning to get there until August 13th and I'll be doing AOP which begins Aug 16th. Don't plan on finding a place to live until I arrive...and I have a dog which makes finding housing especially fun.

wow, good luck!

I received the AOP invite as well. I'm not attending. I don't want to start school a week early, and from what I've heard, the workload during AOP is supposed to simulate what 1L is like, void of any academic value. No need to enter hell a week early IMO.

I'll be arriving on the 21st or 22nd as well. I'm sure it won't be too terrible.

But the devil comes bearing gifts. Suffice it to say, $150 is enough to convince me to pass through the fiery gates a week early.

The money is a plus, but I strongly recommend everyone invited attend if they can. It really is a useful experience.

So what does it mean if you're not invited? Cornell doesn't love you?

does anyone else think that only inviting minorities and LGBT students to a program that teaches you how to brief a case and prepares you for the Socratic method is a bit insulting? why do they assume we need the extra help, while white/straight students don't?

If anyone is still looking for housing and wants to be my neighbor this 2 bed apartment just became available for rent.

I agree. I like the way UC Hastings arranges their incoming program. They provide additional services during the school year to help non-traditional law students, if they are struggling. Sticking people in a class for a week is probably not all that helpful, and if it is, it’s a little bit insulting. *shrug*
