Talked about what excited me about Cornell in the area of law I wanted to practice/location/size and environment of law school

Pretty much what mine was. Good luck!

likewise, thinkin it was a good idea?


I suppose only time will tell. I feel pretty confident about it. It was way more substantial than a few of my other "Why X" essays, which were only loosely based on why I wanted to attend.

I feel the fact that you wrote a "Why X" essay counts more than the actual content of the essay.

Anyone know how strict schools are at letting you slightly miss the EA deadline??

I'm in California, so I guess they got my app Nov 1st, ~2:05 AM. Any chance they'll take my app EA? I designated "yes" on the EA question in the app, btw.

edit: my stats are 3.37/167/Mexican URM

sent a DS and Why cornell too..

Do you guys think describing Ithaca as a small college town in a Why? essay sounds condescending? I'm using it as a reason I want to go there.

Doesn't "submit by" = "submit no later than that date"? If not, I can go to bed and not stay up all night finishing my app :D

I'm going to submit the application tomorrow. Even though I'm above the GPA median and above the 75th percentile LSAT, I would be more than happy to attend Cornell, especially if Cornell gives me a scholarship. The only other schools I might potentially take over Cornell are Harvard, Columbia, or the state school UPenn.

Also, a friend called and asked Cornell, submitting on November 1st is acceptable for EA.

Not at all. They talk about it on the website ad nauseum, probably hopoiing to make Ithaca sound not so horrible.

Not sure if you're joking but Penn is not a state school. It is a private university.

I unnecessarily check it multiple times a day. Even though I know it won't say anything new. I think its the TLS thing to do.

The decision date graphs for the two cycles posted on tls are very different. Any guesses for when the first batch comes out?

I don't think so. The LORS wouldn't have been sent until Cornell requested your credential report anyways.
