That is the idea behind rolling admissions though. When did you apply?


Meh not necessarily. A lot of schools review in order but don't make decisions in order. Platy places give most people the once over at least.


There is a very strong correlation between when you applied and when you hear back.

I never argued against such a correlation.

Then why would you find it insulting if they filled their classes without even looking at your app? It's rolling admissions - first come first serve.

What I would find insulting if true is that they don't actually tell later applicants that they are effectively waitlisted.

If Cornell is basically using those of us still waiting as some sort of waitlist, why wouldn't they bother telling us we're on a waitlist? And why would they bother putting others on reserve today?

ETA: I guess I'm still holding out hope that they're--as they say--just very behind.

In review: 4/21 (after being "complete" since 3/16, and "processing" for two months) :?

Schools vary in their process. It doesn't necessarily imply that of you apply first you get a decision first (many people complain about this incessantly). It generally means you get reviewed first but not decision first (at least that's the intelligent way to do it). I do get a little frustrated, but even moreso in the USC thread with people complaining that those who applied later got decisions first-entitled d-bags.

Just withdrew my application and some sweet, sweet, money. I really hope one of you gets in--Cornell really is absolutely incredible.

I know it's not a perfect measure by any account or if it's accurate at all but LSN has 6 people "Attending" Cornell now. Last year had 7 and last year had 10% more applicants than this year. Ugh.

Yield rate seems to be higher (at least on LSN).

Sorry, but your math is off. Even if this were an accurate measure 7 ->6 is more than a 10% decrease so it would actually suggest a slightly lower yield rate.

I remember someone calling a few weeks ago and them saying that all decisions should be made by May 1. Has anyone spoken recently with Admissions that can either support/deny that?

I find this hard to believe considering I finally just went into review on 04/21.

I'm not even IR yet at all so I really doubt it but maybe they'll kick it into hyperdrive in the office this week!

Yeah still complete as of early March. As for decisions being out by May, I'll believe it when I see it. If by that they mean just a blanket waitlist for everyone still waiting, then yeah ok I believe it. But as far as actual review...here's hoping they haven't made *that* many decisions (lol!) and they have a lower yield rate this year...come on...come on...

This is what I was getting at with my applications review complaint. If it's all people who applied before me getting in, fair enough. But THIS! I went complete a full 2 weeks before mettasutta (no offense to you good sir/madam, you cannot control when you are reviewed) and I am STILL not under review, whereas said poster went under review LAST WEEK! What the hell man?

Hold your horses there. People have been in review for over a month without a decision. Some people get their decision after 1 week in review. I wouldn't sweat it.

In review since 4/7. I called the admissions office twice. Each time they said I would "know by the end of the week."

Sounds like a waitlist
