I have a good offer from Duke, as well as very large ones from BU and UT. Still holding out for NU, Cornell, GULC, Berkeley, and Penn's offers. I think everywhere I applied is notoriously late with merit.


You should get some $$ from GULC. I hear Penn is decent with money.

Is the fin aid deadline extended for need access as well or just for the forms?

For everything, the woman I spoke to said that some might find it more convenient to already have the fafsa and needaccess done but that you definitely don't have to until you have a decision.

or 12k??? we're as poor as they come. Any chance at $ if you combine a 38k household income (mine + parents) with a 167/3.9?

How does Cornell admit students? Is it via snail/email or call? And how long after your last IR date does Cornell notify you?

I'm actually worried Cornell won't get back to me before deposits at other schools are due. And I applied in December. :(

Under Review! What's the usual turn around time for a decision?
