Anyone know how strict they are with due date for health forms?
I'm out of town right now and doubt I'll get it in by June 10th.

While we wait for them to send our netIDs, we can all start filling out the health forms now.

Go here: http://newstudents.cornell.edu/grad/

Click on "to do list" and then "login to track your personal progress." Since we don't have netIDs yet, you have to create a new account using your e-mail and a password.

The deadline for the health and immunization forms is ostensibly June 10th, but I don't think that's a hard deadline. And it includes a form for a physical, but every year someone calls Gannett and they say you don't need the physical unless you're an athlete. :?

Deadline for gym memberships and submitting photos for student IDs is July 10th.

Is it bad if I wait to do all of these things until they tell me directly?

Not strict at all. I may not have mine ready to submit by then either. According to the paper I got in the mail yesterday, they just need to process it by August 9th, so you're probably fine sending it in mid-July.

Welcome back from your vacation. Did you not get the e-mail / snail mail combo directing you to the site? That's as direct as they're going to get. Feel free to wait until the deadlines though.

Thanks! In fact, no I did not. I need to follow up on that. I'll definitely do it as soon as I see it though.

Anyone else not get a reply back for a request to join the class of 2016 FB page? The admin profiles don't look very active.

Looks like the last time they posted / added someone was last Thursday. Perhaps tomorrow then?

Just got the FA email. Shit's getting real. Anyone else getting nervous / giddy?

On a side note - can we access the net ID / email yet? In the FA email it says to do X to get it but I know we haven't been able to yet? I've been out of the loop though.

I'm only nervous because I'm having a difficult time tracking down my immunization records.

I didn't see anything in the FA e-mail about the netID. One person in the fb group received his netID by mail; the rest of us are still waiting as far as I know.

This electronic bill will be sent to your Cornell email account, so it is vital that you activate it before then. *If you have questions about your NetID or Cornell email account, please contact the CIT helpdesk at helpdesk@cornell.edu.


Basically this is what I meant. We're just hanging in there waiting for it, I guess.

Yeah, you need to activate your Cornell e-mail before the bill comes, which won't happen until the second week of July. You can still do all the other stuff before then. I already signed the MPN for the Direct loans. And I had an RC fail and tried to sign the MPN for the Perkins loan now.

So I got my immunization records today. I am a white male, some would say the whitest. My immunization records have an odd error on them that label me as a Hispanic whose sex is unknown.


Edit: Cornell better prepare themselves for completely different scholarship negotiation tactics.

I got it via an email. The NetId verification code is also needed to set up the email. That can come by text if you opt in.

It came from Cornell IT. Perhaps it could have been sent to junk/spam? I can't imagine why they wouldn't send all of these emails out simultaneously.

Nope. Only thing in there was an e-mail from Akron :roll:

I think in previous years people received them at varying times so it's not too strange.

Neat. It's only 43 more people than last year, but at least it's not a decrease. I'm curious to see whether they manage to get the LSAT median back up to 168.

I'm also interested in seeing who they find to take over for Schwab.

Yeah, the Dean search is sure to be interesting. During my jr year of undergrad we got a new President, ad that was pretty fun to follow.


Should we have a TLS Cornell 2016 thread contest on LSAT/GPA and class size? Winner gets a beer from the person who was most wrong?

So we'd have to guess three factors?

I mean, I'll do it but I'm usually pretty bad at these sorts of things.

Class Size: 192
LSAT median: 168
GPA median: 3.65

Not sure how you would weight the three when deciding who's most wrong though.

Just got into Berkeley via email. Is it too late to negotiate with Cornell??
