Northwestern or Cornell?

Postby notellewoods » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:18 pm

Hey guys! I have a question about transferring to two different schools. I got into Cornell a couple hours ago and now I'm trying to decide between Northwestern and Cornell. I got my Northwestern OCI schedule an hour ago and I submitted my comment/note for the Write-On Competition last Saturday. But I've read on the Cornell website that transfer students cannot be a member of journal. I'm also concerned about missing OCI there. Thoughts? Does anyone here who was a transfer at either school have some perspective? Thank you! :D

Cornell places better in NYC and transfers can get on a secondary journal but cannot OCI. I think NW is the right call since you will be able to go through OCI.

I would stick with Northwestern since you got to participate in OCI and do write-on and already were set there. Cornell you'd miss out on OCI and would be eligible to be a work on associate for one of the secondary journals.

Thank you both for your responses! I talked with another intern at my office and I've decided that I'm probably going to stay with Northwestern because I've already done OCI bidding there and I don't really want to stay in NYC after graduation. :D

Greetings! Do you mind sharing your stats? Also, when did you submit your app to Cornell?

Thanks in advance!

0Ls really are not supposed to post in the transfer threads.

What do you mean? The above individual who initiated the thread just stated that he was admitted to Cornell. I am also in the waiting game. I have been accepted to a couple of T20 schools, and am still waiting for a decision from Cornell.

FYI- I wasn’t asking you. So back off.

Back to my initial question, what are your stats?

To be fair, your username and your past questions in the Cornell 2018 Transfer thread seem to imply that you're not a transfer student. If you're in the class of 2021, then you can't be a transfer student and you're an applicant for 2018 as a 1L.

My stats are T2, top 23% with strong softs. My GPA first semester was really strong but because of family reasons I don't want to get into, my second semester GPA wasn't as strong.
