hmmmmmmmm........

Look Cornell, you don't need to say yes for me to love myself. I can always go to Texas or Vandy. But you need to say something before I go crazy.

I'm pretty sure it was 11/1 and you had to be COMPLETE by 11/15 (someone correct me if i'm wrong though)

Yes, you had to apply by 11/1. They're lenient on the complete date (because that's on their end) but I haven't seen exceptions for the apply date.

I wasn't complete by 11/15-- in fact, my 2nd letter wasn't even submitted until after that, so the hold up was definitely on my end-- and I was considered EA/got my decision already

Yeah by "complete" I meant all your stuff should've been into them (they can check dates obviously)...whether or not your status says complete is up to them so i can't imagine they'd hold a later complete date against you if it was their fault.

Edit: just saw arism87's response.....^^ that's what I meant but I guess I was wrong haha

Yes. It is a printed letter with the same body as the acceptance email and a copy of the Alumni magazine.

When did you get it? Do you mind telling me your acceptance date and the roughly the date you received the package?
Because I will be out of the country for a couple of months and all of my mails will be forwared to somewhere else,I really want to make sure I get the letter.

Also, does it say anything about seat deposits or campus visits?

Admitted Monday 12/13 by email; packet on Saturday 12/18. I think it had all the seat deposit/withdrawal information but I really didn't read through everything. I can look when I get home from work.

Thank you very much! If you find out it contains any info on deposit/withdraw, could you please let me know?

Sorry, forgot to post here when I got my email, but:
IN!! via email on the 20th around 11:30AM!
172, 3.71, thought that I was definitely due for a deferral after seeing higher numbers get deferred. But, maybe my numbers are just the sweet spot for schools I applied to this year, which I'm completely fine with :D

^^^ I'm in the same boat, processing as of 12/21, I applied EA, but one of my recommenders had their letter sent late, switching my status from complete to processing, and now the updated processing.

A quick question, would previous applications to Cornell bear any significance in the process? I made it to the final waitlist last year, and had an interview with the dean--would they take this into consideration, or are we all starting at the same fresh line?

Hmm, I am EA and under review as of 11/29. I wonder what the hold up is with my application! If a significant amount of EA rejections/deferrals/waitlists have already went out, I have no idea why they would wait!

Okay, fingers crossed for good news tomorrow :-)

Got my status checker from Michigan today so Cornell is officially the last law school to still have me at processing.
I know it's normal but it's still kind of annoying :?

Santa,
Please bring me a complete from Cornell for Christmas

Thanks

Not yet. What's the earliest people hear/is there a benefit to submitting early? I can't bring myself to write the damn thing. If I were going to have to read a ton of extra essays I would pick a more interesting topic.

...Or perhaps it's my responsibility to make it interesting... /self.
