Cornell does not like splitters so definitely write one.


Is this why their LSAT median isn't 170+ ??

Yes. That and Ithaca. And lack of ED.

No but they don't make decisions until November so not sure what good it would do anyway.

Momentarily reduce my anxiety knowing that the ball is rolling, albeit very slowly.

How's Ithaca treating you, HBB? Can I use you as someone who influenced me to apply?

Maybe something like "My professor told me I should go to Cornell because I'm a good arguer. Also, something about how she thinks I'll just love the weather."

Almost saved a little kid from drowning, but I was too late. Right before he died he whispered in my ear: "apply to Cornell Law".

Dats called influence

I'm enjoying myself. I'm flattered but considering the quality of my posting, that'd be a death knell for your app. Let me know how your cycle goes, GL with UVA.

Also, wrt the last few posts, this is the best applicants thread on TLS.

I wonder if I can construe "names of individuals" to mean "types of liquor," because then the question might actually take on some meaning.

Cornell tries so hard to sell Ithaca. I think referencing it may actually help. Srsly.

I mean, it's Gorges.


Actually, though, it has been so far.
