What do people think about the prospects for folks who were deferred from EA at Cornell?

Based on what people have posted about the adcomm talking about deferrals as a "reserve list," I'm wondering of deferral is just a soft wait list....

HOLY CRAP.
didn't look at the cost of attendance for cornell til now since i have been expecting a ding for a while now but holy smokes......72.3K!!!???

and here i was thinking berkeley oos coa was sky rocket high at 74K and here is cornell right behind it.


But you can get residency at Berkeley.


current resident student budget at berkeley is still 66K and Berkeley's total resident fees for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years will be $49,348 and $51,815 respectively. Add about $22,000 to those figures for cost of living/books/other expenses and the total student budget for CA RESIDENTS is no less than 71.3K.

Berkeley on paper have better need-based aid (on paper because I haven't received offer yet). Also, Cornell may up it even more. I think they are comparably high priced...

yea, i really hope you get a lot of that aid from berkeley...i mean i'm paying back undergrad stafford loans that are a fraction of what one year at a top 10 law school would cost and it hurts every month. i always knew law school was expensive but when the numbers are in your face like that, it's just hits you hard. anyway r6, i don't know if you've seen this thread in the discuss your law school forum but since it involves berkeley and other peer schools you should take a look, maybe helpful.

Extended graduated payment for $150k is like $890 a month or something like that, I have come to term with that much debt. I hope they give me some of that fancy money or I may have to go to UVa lol

I think the payoff is worth it if you are looking at biglaw type salaries. Going for PI with no good LRAP is not worth it.

I'm curious what Cornell's aid will look like. I am praying they're at least as generous as UCLA...

That sounds kind of like a proposition.


That's how I chose to read it.

BU, NU, GULC, (WUSTL, Fordham, Cardozo, GW, Northeastern) but I'm really considering the first three. I was hoping Cornell would give me money but they're being so slow that I don't think it will be in time for seat deposits...

Lol, we'll see. I'd love to go to NU, but it's like 60k more over the three years, plus I want to work in Boston :)
