I'm getting scared, 6/3 looks like the acceptance batch :? :? :?


I wonder why you have two IR dates since being on reserve.

Either they can't believe how awesome we are, or they just wanted another chance to laugh at your applications...

I'm assuming the first date was when they decided to let us in, and the second date is for them to decide how much $$ to give us :lol:

I think the one poster who said their fiance got in on 6/8 also said he went IR on 6/2.

Is that a good thing or are they saving the 6/2's for a bundled rejection email?

What worries me is that 1) so many ppl were let in at once and 2) many of them were let in after their first review date or, in the case if the girl's fiancé, after a second review date that came soon after their first

At least around here it seems like a lot of the people let in are strongly considering other options, and many are still withdrawing from Cornell. Plus it looks like the other T14s are having a good amount of WL activity, which will cause everyone to move up off waitlists (causing more to withdraw from Cornell giving us a better shot, esp. if waitlisted for summer).

I think there's hope :D

+1

Did anyone else specifically say if let in off the wait list/reserve I will attend? I find it odd that all these other people stayed on reserve when they didn't really think they would go to Cornell if they got in.

I said it then reaffirmed it in another LOCI.

I'm wondering if the reason I'm still in review is because I added something to my app since being placed on reserve. An evaluation/LOCI that they now have to review for the first time (and take their standard time with).

I don't know, but would kind of doubt it. There can't be that many of us left-- I bet they are moving right along now.

I guess they have to bring out Ezra to review the Reserve apps too.

I included two additional recs, 1 additional evaluation and an additional "why I heart Cornell" essay.

I got in through the waitlist yesterday. Just sent in one non-committal LOCI before.

Congrats! Are you going to attend? And I can't help but point out that another high GPA is in :( . Really seems like they're looking just at GPA now.

So I guess that means the splitters are screwed?

Not necessarily - splitmuch got in earlier and he was, as his name suggests, a splitter

Thanks! I am pretty sure that I will attend, I just have to become completely sure :) Good Luck to everyone!

This doesn't bode well. Don't have an uber high GPA, and LSAT probably isn't as high as they'd want. But who knows, who knows...
