Sorry if this has already been addressed, I haven't been keeping up with the way that Cornell does things considering it's been 4 months since our last communication.

Exact same situation. Mind sharing your numbers? I'm 171/3.3. No why Cornell essay. You can pm me if you like.


I'm 169/3.4 w/ good work experience. No why Cornell essay, however I did send a short LOCI after the deferral. Doubt I'll get in, but keeping my fingers crossed!


Yea I wonder if they're just getting the waitlists/denys out of the way first lol.

I see more acceptances and denies than waitlists. I don't think Cornell is that prolific with it's waitlists.

So apparently Cornell's deadline to apply for grant funding is March 15th. I was not accepted until yesterday and so I didn't really look into their financial aid stuff until now. Is it too late to apply for grants?

I think it was somewhere in the PDF attached to the acceptance email where they say that, if you were accepted a few days before the deadline or after it, you just need to get the info to them asap.

I am sure that Cornell will have no trouble filling their class with amazing applicants. But I am withdrawing my application. I am from New York so staying closer to home was a bonus for me. But I got a full ride at Northwestern today (which is probably a better fir for me) and still have my application "processing" at Cornell after months and months. My understanding is that "processing" means that not only is my application not being reviewed but that it is not even ready for review. They have an April 15th deposit deadline and are still processing my application? I am not trying to be petty but it is just disappointing that the Cornell admissions process is so slow, and arguably incompetent.

I am not so disillusion so as to think that my withdrawing will have any effect on Cornell at all, but this was the only place that I could really vent. Best of luck to those still waiting, I hope it works out for all of you.

Okay, I was hoping that was the case. Thanks for your help.

ahem, no. I pretty much just forgot about the whole thing until I emailed about the status. It's cool, at least they were kind of quick this year.

How long did they take last year? (when did you get your decision/when you applied?)

I don't think I got a decision until late April. I applied late but I went in review probably before I went into re-review this year.

Thank goodness for Early Action. :D

I actually called and asked this, the woman at admissions told me that if you were admitted after March that you'd have two weeks to turn in the financial aid paperwork. HTH

Also, I had a dream last night that I logged in to my Cornell status checker and my status said "Expected Review Date: 11/1/2012"

You dream too big. There will never be an "expected" review date.

Have all the deferred applicants on TT whose status checkers updated this week been put on reserve?

Deferred back in November. Updated 3/21 and 3/22, haven't heard a final decision yet.

I wonder if Cornell intends on giving me financial aid information this month. I have a deposit deadline of April 1 for several schools.

Do they email you to tell you? Or do you have to look on the status checker?
