Yeah. Submitted 9/31, received 10/5, and complete 11/3... Le sigh.


I've been complete since 11/11 and hoping this isn't a bad sign. :|


I've also been complete since 11/11.

Good luck everyone. It's good to see that there have been more acceptances than rejections/deferrals so far.

Cornell Deferral wrote:Our Admissions Committee has reviewed your Early Action application and has decided to defer your application to our regular J.D. application pool for further consideration.


Cornell Deferral wrote:If you would like to continue to be considered for regular J.D. admission, please e-mail our office at lawadmit@lawschool.cornell.edu as soon as possible. Your application will be considered again after our February 1st deadline for regular admission applications. If we do not hear from you by February 1st, we will assume you have made other plans and will withdraw your application.


The first part seems to imply that you are being lumped into the regular applicant pool automatically (i.e. you don't have to email them). The second part seems to imply that the only way you will be considered is if you do email them. No wonder they had a debacle about this last year.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned.

EDIT: It is pretty clear you have to email them but I can easily see a ton of people not reading it carefully and just assuming by the first sentence that they are automatically being deferred and then wondering in June why they haven't heard a response back yet.


Yikes, deferral does not sound favorable at all. Basically RD applicants who apply in December are likely to hear back before you do. And having to email to say you'd still like to be considered (after you applied EA and are clearly keen) seems odd as well. :?


I was deferred and heard back at the same time as other RD applicants. Also, I never did email them to express continued interest, and they accepted me anyway, so I expect it's not a carved-in-stone requirement.

People are deferred for a whole host of reasons, and it's not a sign Cornell won't eventually accept you. And every year is different (my year, lots of people who were deferred were accepted -- last year, not so much so...) If you really want to go and were deferred, send in additional materials and letters of continuing interest -- if you're in the pool of acceptable applicants, you're much more likely to get in if they honestly believe you'll attend.

What kind of comment is that?? We all know Cornell (and every schools for that matter) will reject far more applicants than they accept.
I am beginning to think that they do the auto admits first..people with gps/lsat that is higher than their 75th percentile.

lol... +1 to all of this, of course. Schools aren't going to roll out the rejections until later, and WL's will likely be even later than the rejects.

Not if you applied EA. EA applicants will have an answer by late December (accept, reject, or defer).

Regardless, Cornell is still doing only admits now (like you said, probably auto-admits), and the EA rejections are obviously later than these early admits.

I was agreeing that it's silly to comment on the large proportion of acceptances early on.

a good number of the eventual rejects/wls that applied under the EA program were deferred to regular admission last year, maybe some 'auto-rejects' (that's a terrible term) will hear in late december but a lot of them wont hear until later like eski said

Nope, EA just stipulates a decision by "mid to late December"

Yep, via email. It says my application will be considered again after our February 1st deadline for regular admission applications. FEBRUARY 1ST? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Not cool cornell, not cool.

YOU were deferred? Unless they're YPing, this means I'll be deferred at the very best.

4.0 170 and deferred? that's odd...

yeah, i am on the opposite end of you. s/he's got 170+ and the 3.9......i would not imagine you need a 175 and 3.9...that's harvard. i am confused.
