No action today, I don't think I can sleep tonight
I know this is like the pot calling the kettle black but try to lighten up a bit. It's definitely a stressful process but don't let these things get to you too much, especially since it's not even a waitlist or ding. You submitted the best app you could and now the ball's on their side of the court. There's likely going to be moments that are much more stressful than this when you're in law school and when you're practicing.
Try to enjoy your party tonight.
ETA: Begin by replying to their email with sincere interest (if you haven't done so already). Not sure about Cornell/Deferrals but people in the NU thread have had success getting off the waitlist in the past by saying that if they were accepted, they will unconditionally commit to going to the school and withdrawing from other pending applications. If that's your situation, I don't think it would hurt to let them know. If not, still write a convincing email.
