am I wrong on this? My student center page is a good 4 grand more than it was last year and a few grand above the estimate on the law schools website.


My student center says 55,220 and so does the law school website. We got an email Spring semester saying tuition was going up by like 3.5% or something IIRC. BUT! That's less than the 5% national average according to the email! Yay!

Yeah Day 1 and Day 2 were posted this morning for a brief period. I actually got an awesome Day 2 so I'm hoping they don't change it...or if they do it's just to add interviews.

Yeah. Something went wrong on Cornell's end and they aren't releasing schedules until tomorrow at the earliest. I'm not sure what went wrong when they literally put us all in a computer lottery, but whatever. Maybe every one of their computers got a megavirus.

My family is helping me move to Ithaca in the next two weeks and I was wondering if any 1L's had restaurant recommendations for B/L/D?

Depends on how you bid, and we're not sure those lists were final.


But what pink cow said.

Thanks. I know M&A activity is down this year, but I wasn't expecting AJF to that shitty.

I have heard rumors that they are re-doing the lists but this is unconfirmed.

Haha I wouldn't take any of what we said on this board last night as indications of how Cornell is doing. The only thing to take away is that the administration and their technical team is astoundingly strange. Cornell is doing just fine.

AGREE. Best breakfast, period. I will add:

L: Wegman's sub sandwich (just try it)

D: Taste of Thai or any of the restaurants down on the Commons strip. Maxie's is just way out in a weird location.

You're either insanely lucky and me insanely unlucky, or you had the best bid order in the history of man.

Good thing most of the firms I didn't get are going to be at the NEBLSA job fair...

Between that and having a jump on the kids in my secondary market, I'm not stressing too much.

Definitely possible. I didn't get a single firm outside my top 4 with the exception of some special market ones that don't count.
