This is an absolutely absurd and petty question, but...

What's the AC situation like at Cornell? I tend to be extremely sensitive to any sort of heat. I talked to some Cornell undergrad friends who mentioned several of the buildings not having AC. Of course, this would only be a problem for the first and last month. Just curious how the actual law school holds up there and if it's even a problem.

When it's "hot" the buildings are well maintained, and if anything they get too cold. You'll have to deal with insufferable heat for like one day of the year, though...maybe.

I got the confirmation about recieving my fin aid sheet. It says that I'll be notified by email about a fin aid award if I get one.

This should mean a quicker turnaround right from last year right? Since it was done by snail mail

does Cornell generally compensate for its above average tuition (2nd highest among all law schools) with proportionately higher scholly offers? $60k in tuition alone is STEEP

Meh. I don't think they really stand out at all--although you can't really discern much from this data. I guess, out of all the schools with the highest COAs, they give out grants to the largest amount of people...but I don't know if that data shows anything else

+1 here, except for April. There is some late night bar shindig, but I don't know if I really want to snag a hotel for that. Anyone considering?

Did people catch this sentence at the very end of the Award PDF?

"Please note that scholarship awards are given with the understanding that there is a moral obligation to repay the Law School if future financial circumstances permit repayment."

Is this a thing...?

It means they're going to solicit you for donations after you graduate like every other school, but for some reason they like to say it in the letter. Financial aid is weird. It's not a legal obligation, so whatever.
