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."

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.

Yes, its been great so far. Ithaca gets a bad rap it doesnt entirely deserve. We will see how we feel in January.

Basically, this is what Floridians say in January. Nowhere's perfect, and people love to bitch.

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.

Just got off the phone with admissions. In case anyone was wondering, they just finished archiving last cycle's apps today and are starting to import the current cycle's apps into their system. Confirmation e-mails and status checker login info should be out by the middle of next week.

Of course, you forgot to ask about the influence question.

My app's already in, bro. I stopped caring about that question on August 25th.

The school is on top of a steep hill. Other than that, it's just like any other college town.

That's outweighed by the crunchiness of the Commons.

Honestly, Ithaca is a nice college town. It kind of feels like a hippie commune, but the weather is the worst thing.

My #s are median lsat (the most recent numbers) and a tiny bit below median gpa. Should I write a Why Cornell (I know they ask for one basically) or save for LOCI?

We're almost number twins (I have slightly above median GPA) and I wrote one.
