TJ, did you have the opportunity to interview after being waitlisted?


No, still on reserve. Sorry. Treating it like a waitlist for so long in my mind must have caused that slip.

Ah, I see. If you do receive a spot on the WL, I think you stand a good chance to make it in after interviewing. Just my impression after meeting you at the UMN ASD. Best of luck to you, keep me updated.

As a just-graduated-senior about to move-out of Ithaca for the last time unless I hit a miracle off Cornell's reserve, I resent all the Ithaca bashing.

You can't get this at Vandy:

Actually, you can. Fall Creek Falls (Pictured below) is only ~90 miles & there are numerous others (even closer) in the same chain of mountains (Appalachian) as you will find in Upstate New York.

Ok well 90 miles away isn't really at Vandy. There are gorges literally right next to Cornell Law School.

Thanks! Yeah I'm really hoping I can get that chance. Best of luck to you too! When are you moving out to Iowa?

My lease begins August 1st, so I'll start driving from Oregon on July 28th. Did you already find a place in Minneapolis?

I absolutely think Ithaca is beautiful. I wouldn't call the bagel remark "Ithaca bashing." More like friendly ribbing. I'm sure the bagel shop is a lot of fun.

Yeah. There were just a slew of negative comments about Ithaca in a row. Such as:

The CTB ribbing was in good fun, I'm sure. It was more the general anti-Ithaca sentiment that I was addressing.

I do agree that Ithaca is beautiful in the summer. Unfortunately, this happens to be a different time than when law school occurs.

I don't think the point is that Ithaca is terrible, I think the point is that the culture of Nashville and Vandy is great, the school is great, and the money is great, and there isn't a single compelling reason to choose Cornell over Vandy in this situation.
