Is it the most expensive? When I went to visit, financial aid made sure to say that they are now NOT the most expensive school haha


You're right in that they're probably considering total cost of attendance. Even if there are some schools that have more expensive total costs, Cornell is quite pricey.

I agree 100%...and why? I don't understand what makes one school $55,000 and another $48,000 of comparable reputation, size, and rank

Meh, I wouldn't stress until anyone hears anything. I'm under the impression that there isn't any rhyme or reason quite yet. Nothing really to support that other than my negative attitude, lol.

I called them 3-4 weeks ago, and the message seemed to be that they would take about 2-4 weeks after the second deposit deadline to re-review things and make decisions.
