Same here. 11/03->12/06->12/13. I should've waited until later in the day to check this thread. I can't get away from it now.


Exact same here.

It's not. We 12/12ers are getting in. No worries! I mean, just think about how damned handsome we all are. Cornell wants us. Cornell wants us bad. They're just playing hard to get.

If you are right, I will buy you Johnny Walker Blue Label on ASW

And there's no way you're not getting in with your numbers. So there's still hope.

I have similar numbers, and according to LSN Cornell probably YPs between 25-40% of the people who have autoadmit numbers. It's lower than at other schools, but it seems to happen.

I guess I won't be super disappointed if that happens to me (or if they just reject me for being an ass, or something), but it would be nice to have them as an option. The school really is amazing.

Oh, totally. I really admire when a school lets in (numerically) overqualified people... I think it shows they have a lot of pride in their institution. I think Cornell is a good example of the practice of maybe weeding out the people who don't write a "Why Cornell?" or who have nothing compelling aside from a high LSAT, while keeping the others that will probably go elsewhere, but could conceivably go to Cornell.

I wrote a "Why Cornell" in addition to my PS, so if I am not accepted I know it wasn't b/c or that. I think the academic culture is what is most appealing. Like I said before, I want to have friends AND go to a prestigious law school

In via email! (~9:49 EST)
I think I went complete on 11/21 and UR on 12/14, if that helps. GPA is somewhere between 25th-50th, and LSAT is above 75th.

Uh, no? They WL'd a lot of sub-170s, which is def not YP, but most of the other WL are people who applied January or later (and there are very few of those at or above 170).

Sorry, I guess I was reading into the huge number of "Pendings" I saw for the 170+ crowd who applied in Sept/Oct/Nov.

Anyway, let's hope you're right!

Of course I'm right. Oh, and while the blue is great, I do love me some green.

We got this. Who wouldn't want us? That's a far more interesting question.

Also accepted via email! Submitted 11/04. Did not keep track of my updates, though I had several "Complete" dates. Some should be in this thread.

Stats in profile.

Good luck to everyone!
