If you want to go there, you should be happy that I am considering withdrawing. I am entitled to look for different things in a school than you. You may view a school's interest in you as an applicant as an irrelevant factor in your decision, but I don't. Cornell isn't that good of a school (FOR ME PERSONALLY based on where I want to practice and what I want to study) that I would consider going there with absolutely no wooing/marketing or money.
Then withdraw. It's a long process. But it's petulant and childish to think that another school which sends you complete in a week but makes you wait two months for a decision is showing 'interest' in you. You'll be complete this week, probably. But you won't get money until you're in anyway.
I think we all know and agree that its a long process. Some of us feel Cornell makes its additionally painful and have expressed that on this thread. Its not personally directed at anyone and if you don't agree, you should just ignore us. Its a testy time for all of us, lets cut each other some slack.
I think you're cute but you're justifying whiny first world bitching because some schools, inundated with applications in an unpredictable time, are taking too long to pick you, a special snowflake, from the piles of said applications...
Meh whatever sorry if I'm being harsh.
a) I am not complaining about 'some schools'...only one.
b) I do not care if Cornell 'picks' me as a winner....I care about getting an indication one way or the other.
c) Its not whining, its more of a commentary of my loss of interest in a school I cared about and no longer do given their pace in comparison
to every other school I have applied to.
And, I am now done with this discussion for good.
