same exact thing happened to me. no insight on the matter unfortunately


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).


lol at the image of a bunch of Cornell adcommies passing my app around laughing hysterically.

Submitted 11/22...complete 1/25...under review 1/26...at least it didn't take as long to go under review as it did to be complete. Hope the decision (hopefully positive) comes quickly.

don't worry. i had an initial process date of late nov and my file went complete last week.
it happens but just have to wait .


Thanks, buddy. That was really nice. :D

(and, no, I am not being sarcastic. This comment really made me feel good inside)


no problem. cornell is notorious for being slow in processing.

plus one to the updated processing group. 11/30 --->1/26. Comforting to see SOMETHING change on that page.

That happend to me about 48 hours before a decision. Nothing the status tracker for Cornell does makes sense, so I am sure this means you are getting a response next year.

JK, good luck.

A response in 2012? That is FAR better than I hoped for, or have come to expect from Cornell. Let's see how the decision timeline plays out.

Any other Cornell undergrads here? Here's hoping I can stay in Ithaca, though my application is still processing, so who knows. 3.4, 167, URM, (relatively) unique softs, but I still won't hold my breath. And considering how long it'll take to get a decision, seems like a good idea.

Seriously? I've seen snide comments about how Cornell "loves low GPAs" (not on this thread), but they do have a bizarre 25/75 LSAT. And if anything I figure I'd be less subject to YP. Who knows

URM should put you over the fence.

Typically, the URM boost seems to be exclusive for the LSAT.

For URMs accepted the last two years, the LSAT quartiles (25, 50, 75) were 162, 165, and 168; GPA quartiles were 3.4, 3.65, 3.79.

Either way, I think his LSAT is high enough to put him over the edge regardless

I'm same boat here, really interested in Cornell, URM, 171 LSAT, but my UGPA is only a 3.1--I'm super scared on how I'm going to do this cycle; best of luck to you!

That's a great score! I wish I had studied more for the LSAT lol. I'm sure you can crack the T14.

That is, if I go complete before they run out of spots! Kidding! Hope Cornell doesn't keep you early submitters waiting any longer.

Thanks--haha, it's a good score, but it's also hard because you get a taste of good schools but are such a splitter that it's hard to know what's going to happen. We'll see, best of luck to you as well!

Oh hey Cornell, glad you're delighted I'm complete after two months. Nice of you to promise suggest there is some possibility I will get a decision withing 8-12 weeks from now.

I know exactly how you feel. URM, 170, 3.01. It seems like no one has these stats so it's impossible to know what to expect.

For all the early Jan completes (myself included) we all seemed to go into the new processing date a day or two before we went complete. So by Monday you should all be complete.
