With those #'s and URM status it's all about how much $ you will get not whether you will be in.

I'm really disappointed in how Cornell has handled this process. To be honest, I would rather get my application money back at this point; I haven't heard a peep since I applied late November.

I really don't think they were expecting their application numbers to double....

With that said, it doesn't seem like they have any particular order when it comes to reviewing apps.

Review date twins!

I went complete 2/2 though. It's funny to me that it took from 11/26 until 2/2 for anything to happen to my application. Literally, not a single processing date in between. And then my review dates have come fairly quickly. I hope this means that they didn't see my application, laugh, and throw it in the reject pile.

And it makes me really sad to say that because Cornell is my mom's alma mater and I really love Ithaca. :(

I like to think the three dates means we aren't auto-admit or auto-reject, the first two reviewers couldn't reach a consensus and passed us on to the dean, he's now reading our apps thoroughly as we speak, and by the end of the day will be astounded by our personal statements/resumes and not only offer us admission, but a full scholarship as well.

:lol: I like the way you think. ;) I also don't know what to think. There aren't a whole lot of green dots around my numbers for Cornell on LSN, but, to be fair, there aren't a lot of URMs with my numbers applying to Cornell (at least on LSN). It looks like they all have much higher or much lower numbers. The few green dots with my LSAT have substantially lower GPAs and were URMs and got in. *crosses fingers*

Sorry, I haven''t really been following things here. Why did Cornell's applications double?

I am sure they are still processing some applications from previous years, so they've got quite a pile now...
