Did you go under review 3/6? Were you deferred from EA?

I was just placed on "reserve" :shock:

Was deferred on 12/14, no change in my status checker, and had the decision emailed to me today! I'm definitely riding this one out...

Btw, other than a LOCI and an additional recommendations (which I did after my deferment) what else can I do to increase my chances?

After waiting so long, I decided to just email cornell and withdraw my app that had been in review forever like everyone else

A few hours later I received an acceptance email

I wish I could claim one of those was true. No interview requested. Only took LSAT once. No Criminal record. Is this a potential case of YP?

At least 1 person who went UR 4/06 got a decision today. It seems a tiny bit odd that some of us should get UR 4/07 while others got UR 4/06.

Wonder if those of us UR 4/07 will hear back tomorrow?

did you look at the link you just posted? It doesn't show anyone with 169+, 4.0+ not being accepted

There's a smattering of scores in that range being waitlisted. It's certainly not a yield-protect, is my point.

It's not a "smattering". There are a few but do you see many? No. It's almost all greens.
