Dear AVD90,

There is nothing wrong with your file, and because your application was complete before our deadline, we will have a decision for you by mid-April.

Best wishes,

Connie M. Pendergast

could they be more vague??!


How drunk was this drunk email?


+1. "Writing drunk emails to admissions office" is probably in the top 10 worst things to do when applying to law school. haha

To whom it may concern:

I am writing to check the status of my application to Cornell. I have not seen any movement on the status checker since going complete 1/31. I just wanted to make sure nothing was wrong with my file that was keeping it from going to review.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

not really drunk, as much as I was drunk so I had enough balls to actually send something/

I was imagining the adcoms in my head.. but I guess I could spend the time from now until then planning out the logistics.

has anyone sent a LOCI? Is email appropriate, or snail mail only? I'm in CA, so the faster it gets there, the better :D

I snail-mailed it, but only because I figured it would force them to read it. You could probably email and be fine, though.

On a side note, has anyone gotten financial aid yet? They said I'd find out soon after all of my documents were in (and they've been in for a while). I'm chomping at the bit.

I had an idea in the UVA thread: Schools were waiting for February LSAT scores

Yea.. but I thought Cornell's deadline was Feb 1st? I really have no idea. Waiting for LSAT scores makes some sense though, especially since there may be applicants who are retaking.

It makes sense, but is it even possible to have schools consider a February LSAT in this cycle? I agree -- I thought the deadline kept them from doing so.

Maybe the drop in applicants may be forcing Cornell to consider February LSATs in order to maintain their stats?

Sending in final LOCI, hope to get off the "reserve" list.

Anybody else notice the jump in award money this cycle? Any ideas why?

This year, I'm seeing several awards of 144k on LSN. Last year, with one exception, the awards seem to top out at 135k.

Did tuition go up by 3k/yr? Maybe that could be it?

The 144k is because the deans scholarship went up to 48k/year for a total of 144k, and I think last year it was only 45k/year. I'm not sure about tuition.

Interesting, I sent my financial aid info in already. Is everyone automatically considered for the dean's scholarship? Seems that non-named scholarship don't typically require a special application.
