thats super weird. why wouldn't they try and foster some interaction. anyways like I said the rest of the school is really helpful once you're in. Also the financial aid office was really helpful once aid etc. was doled out.

They are requesting that I be considerate of other applicants and give them a quick response. Sounds like they really want me, so sounds like there will be a place opening up for someone else soon when I turn them down. Rudest acceptance letter possible. I want a refund for them making me wait so long. These guys are thoroughly unprofessional.

I also got accepted today and I could not believe the letter *begins* with the line "be kind to your fellow applicants," followed shortly thereafter by a notice that we'll have to give them our decision in 7 days. (BTW, if you read all the fine print re: financial aid, you don't have to give them an answer until 1 week after you receive your financial aid award). I have been really horrified at how inconsiderate Cornell has been throughout this process and this letter just seemed to reinforce that impression. I thought it would begin with an apology for its tardy arrival; I certainly did not anticipate scolding in the first sentence...

To put it nicely, I would be surprised if you got in. Very surprised. That is not to say I don't wish you luck...

yea random e-mail in late march saying they accepted feb LSAT scores and offered a fee waiver. I was super stoked to apply (and I filled out the app that day) but I assumed it was just to increase their reportable number of applicants for the year and that in reality I have <5% chance of even getting wait-listed.

I wish they would review and deny me already though because my application still sitting there complete gives me just the slightest bit of hope.

haha same here. I willingly forked over the 21 bucks for the LSAC report while cursing myself for having the slightest bit of hope.

Reserved today and immediately withdrew. Putting in a deposit at NW. Good luck to those waiting for a decision....you'll need it if you want a response prior to August from this joke of an admissions office.

Where you actually played a lawyer. Surely you wrote about that in your PS, or at least your DS?

I'd say "no" lol I'm a 1/29 original complete and am still stuck on my third update (4/17). It's like they get a kick out of being withholding >_> But I'm hoping that at least people like myself who already have 3 will get our fourth and a decision by May 1st. But honestly I'm not holding out much hope, nor do I really care.
