Cornell is up to #6 in terms of outcomes better than every school but Columbia, Harvard, Stanford, Penn and Chicago:

57.5 (100+ firms) + 10.9 (Federal Clerkship) = 68.4%

This changes everything!

Ah those look nice.

What's the deal with the school funded jobs at Cornell? Seems like there's a huge difference at a lot of (even T14 schools) as to what those actually mean career-wise.

The Rhodes Public Interest Law Fellowship is legit, but I don't know what the others are like.

All I want is scholarship info to be released! Ah! It's the last piece of the puzzle and is preventing me from finalizing a decision. This has been a long process...

Wait on LSAT score, wait on letters of recommendation, wait on decision, wait on money, wait on grades, wait on callbacks, wait on retirement…

When were you accepted? Wondering if they're doing it by acceptances and by the dates documents were sent.

Cornell why are you so slow with your entire process (I still love you)? :(

ETA: Did you also apply for both need/merit or just merit?

I was accepted in mid-November and applied for both need and merit(no clue how they arrived at the scholly number, probably a mix of both).

Just got my financial aid award attended the most recent ASW. It's extremely competitive but it did not seal the deal for me.

For people getting aid, were you all interviewed, and how far from New York are you?

There's the HT rhodes scholarship which is a two year funded thing and pays a pretty competitive starting salary for PI. Its very similar to an EJW or skadden fellowship but is only open to cornell students.

I'm really not sure about the other ones but here are my guesses:

Cornell guarantees you funding of like 1k per month to volunteer at a public interest org for I think up to 16 months. They mainly do this so that kids who want to work at say a DA or SA office that just won't hire anybody until they have their bar results (state policy or whatever) don't starve while they volunteer at that office. Its really not a lot of money but its just meant to take the sting out of volunteering.

I've noticed over the years that a few graduates have stuck around to do research assistant type stuff for certain professors. Each of these people either went to clerk or went to big law and were on law review etc. so I feel like maybe there are a few school funded positions for academic research.
