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?


Don't get your hopes up. The only people who heard back 1-2 days after going under review were people who were deferred from the EA pool. And I think they were all waitlisted lol.

Advance apologies: I'm sure this information is in the thread somewhere, but honestly, I got so irritated at Cornell's slower-than-molasses behavior that I stopped keeping up with all developments related to it to preserve my sanity. If someone would be so kind as to answer the following, I would be much obliged:

1. What is Cornell's deposit deadline?

2. Are all notifications made via e-mail, including acceptances? (I thought I recalled reading in another post that Cornell snail-mailed* decisions.)

3. Does Cornell notify accepted students of scholarship offers along with their initial acceptance or do those follow after? If they follow, is that notification made via e-mail or snail-mail*?

*Or, in keeping with the rest of Cornell's admissions style, are these notifications delivered by an actual snail? A trained one, of course.

1. The 15th. But you have 2 weeks to deposit if you get notified after the 15th I believe.

2. Admit/WL are by email. Not sure on rejections.

3. Scholarship/aid comes after acceptance. I think it is through snail mail but some people have successfully called their fin aid office and gotten them to email or fax their aid sheet.

Thanks! :mrgreen: It's going to be a tough decision. Vandy is $50,000 cheaper over three years, but my first impression is that Cornell's LRAP blows Vandy's out of the water.

This was the email:

Dear XXX,

Thank you for your patience. The financial aid committee has returned your file to me and I am happy to report that your academic year scholarship has been increased from 15,000/yr to 20,000/yr, 10,000 each semester.

Also, my $105,000 package from GULC might have had something to do with the increase.

Grazi. 15th is ridiculous, considering. Slither faster snails!

At this point in the cycle, I don't think dates moving quickly mean anything other than they are rushing to get decisions out reasonably in advance of the deposit deadline.

Is finaid emailed or accessible via their website?
