Why? I'm sure most people who are accepted so far won't end up matriculating at Cornell anyways.

Which is why I admire UVA's admission strategy.

Samesies.


Same here, let's the 11/16 processing crowd delude ourselves into thinking this delay not only signify acceptances but full scholarships :wink:


Hehe. Well consider me deluded.

I still don't know what UVA adcomms are thinking for OOS RD applicants. I see people with 174+/3.6+ get rejected lol.

because people with similar numbers were waitlisted or straight up dinged. I didn't see this as much in last year's threads and better numbers (but not so good that itd be YP) were deferred for RD.

Who though? I haven't seen anyone with a 170+/3.7+ get straight out dinged or waitlisted. Worst was a deferral.

thats what I was saying-a deferral for people with those numbers, if someone with a 170 got a deferral, I wouldn't be surprised if I got off a waitlist, which is really hard to get off of.
when are you gonna send out ur app?

ASAP. LSAC+Professors are being slow with LORs and I'm being lazy with PS. Oh well, some things are out of my control at this point and I've stopped worrying about it.

Also to maybe assuage your fears a bit, Cornell is pretty unpredictable with splitters. They seem to like well rounded people and I wouldn't be surprised when you see people with LSAT in the low 170s get deferred when they have GPAs around 3.4-3.5.

And if I remember correctly you were above both 75th? You should be a lock unless you get r6'ed, but his numbers were a bit higher than yours so maybe you don't need to worry about YP?

I see what you did there.

i meant im afraid to call the admissions office to ask what the deal is. it isn't a tailor where u expect ur suit back by such and such a date, but if u have the balls to, by all means post what happens so people like me can know.

Cornell is notorious with being extremely frustrating with apps. I don't think calling them would do anything.

So weird. I also applied to 19 schools and have been processing at Cornell since October. We even have a lot of the same schools.

Srsly?


Yeah. I can post what the rejection letter looks like if you want.

They say URM splitter cycles can be unpredictable, so I'm not terribly concerned. I'm in at GULC already, so I already have a decent option at the bottom of the T14.


I wasn't calling flame, but wow. Just wow. Even if you weren't a URM, I would be surprised at your rejection.


I'm a non-mex hispanic and my app has been complete and ready for review (per the email since 11/17). I'm a reverse splitter at an ivy league with GPA over 3.8 and lsat 163.
I actually emailed Geiger about my low lsat score. He said a high GPA is a better indication of one's abilities than a score on a single day. So, I hope that bodes well for me.

Here is the exerpt from the email I received in response to my question:
__________________________________________________________________
You’ve obviously done well at a strong school and have shown the ability to thrive in an academic environment. That’s important to us, and will usually outweigh the LSAT score because your college record is based on actual performance not a high-stakes test’s prediction about future performance.
