Yeah, I think I remember reading something about mid-May and thinking "Oh, that's not bad, I'll only be out one deposit." Looking extremely unlikely that I won't be out two now.

Broken record, maybe, but I'll echo this question. Any reserve news?

I got over my "ohmygod I hate Cornell's admissions office" and kept my name on the list. :oops:


i keep going back and forth. it will be pretty hard to pack up and move to ithaca on like 2 weeks notice or whatever they're going to give us. haha but i'm still sticking with reserve

Any guesses on how large the reserve pool is?

"several hundred."

I have no idea. Odds of getting off it probably slightly worse than randomly getting a wristy from Scarlet Johannson.

I was told several hundred when I was reserved in late January or early February. Probably a lot of people that have withdrawn since then, but probably also a lot of people have been added so I'm not too hopeful.

I hope this doesn't mean splitters are SOL.

Updated from Reserve to IR 5/19. I'm guessing they're trying to decide who to cut and who to put on that 'official waitlist' they wrote about previously.

Those of you who were on reserve and are now IR, when did you get placed on reserve?

they did say they'd give everyone on reserve one more close look in the email:

"We don't rank people on reserve and we will be taking at least one more close look at everyone involved."

So, I guess I have to ask. Mind sharing if you're a reverse splitter?

I give up trying to read anything into this order of IR. I guess it will have to remain one of those Cornell Admissions mysteries.

I'm not sure either, but it looks like we may be due for a few acceptances from Reserve based off of the applicant thread from last year: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=93274&start=6175



Thank you for providing the link! I was losing a little more hope every day...this will at least get me through the weekend!
