Yes that sounds about right. Likely when the first batch of WLs deferrals will go out too.

Yes. Cornell is really slow, especially with RD.

Still at 11/3 :|.

How many of ya'll still waiting that applied on/after 10/31???

I'm thinking (really praying) that this may be what's taking so long... maybe they just have not gotten to our 'pile' of apps yet.

I applied 10/31

EDIT: horrible grammar

Also applied 10/31, although I didn't complete until 11/10 as I had to send in an updated transcript.

Looking on LSN the most recent round of acceptances were for those that applied on 10/24 and 10/25, I'd say it's very likely the 10/31ers will be part of the next batch so take it easy :p

I applied around 10/25 and went complete 11/3. What's really worrying me is that people who went complete around the same time have been hearing back. I'm willing to bet they deferred me.

I applied 10/27, complete 11/3, no movement since. I am at/above both 75ths, I really don't think 11/3 is the kiss of death yet. We aren't supposed to hear back until mid-December, and only ~4 people on LSN that applied 10/24-10/25 (and no one who applied later) has heard back. Most people who have heard back applied in September.

Deep breaths.

I applied 9/26, went complete 9/29, and went complete again (and maybe another in between) on 10/31. Likely a waitlist

Yikes. If you're likely a waitlist, with all those updates, that doesn't bode well (theoretically) for those of us not moving.

I don't think COrnell is giving responses in the order they received the apps... really the only valid explanation

I applied on 9/26 and just heard from them yesterday. There were plent of people who applied a month or so after I did that heard back almost a month before I did. Bottom line, don't lose hope :) they don't necessarily do them in chronological order, as my status did not even change 'til 11/21. The adcoms do their thing sporadically, so don't worry about when you applied or updated. Hope this helps.

hey y'all! I've been lurking awhile and finally decided to be a member. I just got my application completed email today. 166 and 3.72, a reach but hopefully my LOR from a teacher who barely knows me and run of the mill personal statement will put me over the top.

slightly lazy to look back in the thread... But how long has it taken generally for the admit package to come in after the email, and does it include scholly info?

I hope you liberally sprinkled Archer references (which I assume is what your username is) throughout your personal statement. I'd admit that.

glad someone got the archer reference. Actually, my personal statement goes like this:

Dear Admissions Board:

I seek the Dark Tower.
