Don't know your specifics, but as long as it's 169+, I think it's effectively the same as a 180 at this point. Or maybe a 179. I just think if you're above the median, they're looking for more interesting things than how far you are above that median. Selfishly, I hope I'm wrong, but I think I'm right.

Well, selfishly, I hope you're right. :mrgreen:

Finally IN at Cornell!

Postby tigerbunny » Sun Jun 12, 2011 12:06 pm

applied January 23, waitlisted May 10, IN June 7th!

Cornell was the best school among the schools I felt like I could get into (highest LSAT 169), so I'm really happy and will probably go there unless I get off the WL at Michigan with $$$, which will probably not happen.

Still IR 6/6. Seems like many are having only one review date and a few/several days between decisions. Here's hoping for some good news in the near future.

Was just updated to 6/13 from 6/2 as well...

At this point I'll do anything to get into Cornell, its the only school I wanted to go to. But it makes me nervous whenever they update a large batch of applications at the same time.

I'm technically on my 4th date if you count my phantom review on the 2nd

This was all just a soft reject for Naked Dude :lol:


(JK ND, I'm sure this means nothing, if anything you should feel good that you're outside the majority pack, could be good)

I can't see how multiple reviews is a good thing. :(

it show's that they're actually considering your app.. there's no point in reviewing it 3 times if it was an obvious waitlist or reject.
