According to the people in the ask a 1L thread, pretty late in the game. I'm not holding my breath.

i believe they told R6 to expect a decision 8-12 weeks from february 1st. So, never.

I had the same dates and got admitted today! So I'd assume you should definitely hear something soon...good luck!

Finally moved up to 'Complete' after...8 weeks. There's a pool going on how long it takes to go UR from here.

Congrats to everyone who got in recently! Very envious

Third IR. :shock:

I think. Yesterday I checked my status on Zune and I'm pretty sure it said 02/22. Now it says 02/23.

Good Lord, what does it mean?

It seems that there have been 2-3 IR dates before a decision is made. Also, there tends to be a wave of waitlist/rejections before the wave of admits. My guess would be that the 2/23 crowd won't be any different--so in other words, survive the first wave of dings/WLs and your chances seem pretty good.

YP. If you do the interview, PM me know who they schedule you with. I'd be curious to hear if we have the same person and your reaction to his/her's disposition.

Hey NZA, I had 3 or 4 IRs before I was placed on reserve......hopefully this won't be your fate, I'm sure you have a lot better numbers than I do!

I'm letting you know you might be hearing from them today! I think I heard from them on a Tue or Wednesday, on the day of my 3rd or 4th (can't remember) IR.

EDIT: just checked back, it was a Wednesday at 1pm. :shock:

Yeah that's what I figured. It's just not worth it for me to do the interview, I can't really see a situation where I would attend over other schools but I thought I'd give them a shot to give me some $$, guess I was wrong haha. Anyway- good luckkkk!

It would be so awesome if we all withdrew at the same time and just messed up their cycle. I been processing almost 2 months. It's just crazy. Do they think they are Yale?

With your stats the only relevant interview question may be "If we accept you, will you attend ?".

Or "How much money would it take for you to come here?"

They'll get to your file eventually. They've been hustling recently.

well, im finally under review.

can anyone comment on how cornell deals with LSAT's below the 168 median? I am at 167 and I find Cornell's tight band of 25%-75% to be interesting. I dont know how good of a shot I have this late in the game with a 167 (high gpa though)

Thanks a lot man I feel a lot better now. I thought they'd never get to my file ever :roll:. I think the issue we had was the amount of time a school like Cornell takes to just finish processing.

Yeah, that's understandable. I think even the adcoms know they're running late this year though . . .
