Just sent in my seat deposit. As someone who is pretty laid back and non competitive I am a little worried about the so-called atmosphere. Hopefully it isn't true and I can meet some chill people to kick back with.

I am straight through. I was hoping to get some Hughes Hall housing, but I think its full. Any idea where good places to live are?

Collegetown seems pretty pricey actually.

I liked downtown and around the commons...much cheaper and better quality than the houses/apartments near collegetown ( unless you are at 312, collegetown terrace, or one of those pricey places)

I only spent a couple hours in Ithaca when I visited (since I wasn't admitted yet I wanted to go check out Toronto more than Ithaca), but I thought it was pretty cool. I heard parking is pretty rough to find if you wanna commute by car, but I was curious how the buses work. Being from Seattle we have fairly mild winters, so I am not sure if standing outside in sub-freezing temperatures for a bus is worth it or not. Just curious.

Is there even a bus stop by the law school? or parking by the law school?

But, but today was supposed to be the day we all got accepted. :/

Does the Admissions Office even work Fridays?

No parking...but bus stop. From what I hear there is no feasible parking on campus. You either need to walk/bike/ take the bus

For those of you who got in recently, the JD admin packet says "We also reserve the right to suspend an offer if you have an active reservation with another law school after June 4, 2012." Does anyone know if "active reservation" includes remaining on the waitlist at other schools?

I'm not sure, but i asked about the deadline and they said they would contact you to find out what's going on before they take any action, so i wouldn't worry.

I think an active reservation would mean putting s deposit at another school...not the WL

This is correct. It says this somewhere in the packet or online or somewhere

When sending in the Dean's Certification, did you waive the access right? Not sure if this matters if you are admitted already.

I recieved my cornell email and netid, now i'm getting down to doing the "health history and immunization compliance form" and sending in my transcript. Just to clarify, the Deans certification you guys keep mentioning is just the final official transcript, correct?
