Has any scholarship info gone out recently? Sorry if this has been covered--I was out of town and away from TLS for a while.

Placed on the Reserve List today. Mixed feelings but thought I would be an auto ding with my numbers.

Has anyone actually been waitlisted or are we all being reserved?

I think reserve leads into waitlist after the deposit deadline. Not all reserve will make it to the waitlist from what I understand. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

LOL, so you're telling me it's possible to be:

EA - Deferred - Reserved - Waitlisted.

Oh boy.

Hopefully they'll let us roll our WL into EA for next cycle if that's the case.

Our several-hundred-person reserve group (of which you are now a part) helps us keep in line with these target levels. Later in the season after we've begun to hear back from people already accepted (usually by mid-to-late May), we decide if further offers are appropriate. If so, we review the files of all reserve applicants and make additional offers. At that point, we also create our official waiting list.

Yep! Get ready for a new kind of nightmare

That's what I had originally thought, but after actually reading their email it doesn't seem like it.

EDIT: I have no clue, though.

That's just ridiculous. If they hear from all the admitted students by mid may or whenever their deadline is, there shouldn't be a need for an additional waitlist - just fill your damn class!

I mean...here it is...

Dear TLSP (you intelligent and fantastic wymyn)

We are writing to inform you that our Admissions Committee has now reviewed your application as part of our regular application pool and has placed your name on reserve. Although we know that this is not the news you were hoping to receive, please understand that you are still in the running, along with many other fine candidates.

Let us explain our situation. This year we've received a large number of applications for the available spaces in our entering class. Many of these people deserve an offer of admission. Unfortunately, we're not able to admit every deserving person and, since our small class size is such a high priority, we have to be very cautious about the number of offers we make; otherwise, we could end up with an overly large entering class. For this reason, we've set fairly specific target levels for the number of offers we should have outstanding at various points in time. Our several-hundred-person reserve group (of which you are now a part) helps us keep in line with these target levels. Later in the season after we've begun to hear back from people already accepted (usually by mid-to-late May), we decide if further offers are appropriate. If so, we review the files of all reserve applicants and make additional offers. At that point, we also create our official waiting list.

We don't rank people on reserve and we'll be taking at least one more close look at everyone involved. We know you had a prior opportunity to supplement your application, but please feel free to again supplement your application with additional information. Please email us at lawadmit@lawschool.cornell.edu as soon as possible expressing your interest in remaining on reserve. If we do not hear from you by May 14th, we'll assume you've made other plans for next year and will remove your name from reserve.

Thank you for your interest in Cornell Law School and congratulations on your fine record and background. We'll be in touch as soon as possible.


Sincerely,

Cornell Law School Admissions


All the things in red lead me to believe it's definitely a waitlist by a more thesaurus friendly name.
