I imagine you mean 11/12? I am 11/30, and have given up hope on a decision anytime soon.

Still processing here as well. Starting to think I'll end up accepting somewhere else before I even go complete at Cornell -- and it's my first choice.

For what it's worth, I called Cornell today and they said that they would not begin to hand out scholarships until after March 15th, at least in general.

Shoot, I need to call and find out when I'm going to finally get switched over to complete.

That is lovely news, since I will have my Feb LSAT then, which assuming I don't get rejected before receiving it, and I improve, might help me out.

If not, there's probably time to take the June one before going complete.

I'm probably the last 11/23 (and more recently 1/12) left, but this afternoon they *finally* updated my status.

They also mentioned that LLM applicants go under the knife starting around mid-January, which I dearly hope means me, since I'm trying to do the Intl/Comparative joint degree.

At least I hope that's what this means.

JD/LLM for International and Comparative Law applicants have already started getting decisions. I was just admitted to that program two days ago.

Great! Now I only hope I can get that decision before New Year's Eve.

You'll hear soon. I submitted 11/4 and went complete 1/3 and just heard this week.

For those with "Application in review" status, are daily updates normal? I went under review on Friday (after more than two months of processing, and a week of being complete), and have had status date changes both yesterday and today. After months of zero Cornell activity, it's a bit curious to see so much movement, so fast.

As many people on the forum say, reading into status updates is worse than reading tea leaves. It may well be an automatic daily update a la Michigan. I choose to believe that they are passing my application around so everyone can see it (either to laugh, or to bask in its glory).

I went under review on Friday and my status hasn't changed since. This is probably terrible news for me....

So you're probably special..at least special enough to warrant status updates.

Processing status changed to today's date. I have been processing since the end of November. Is there anyone out there that can beat a processing date of late November?

Thanks, buddy. That was really nice. :D
