Seems like they'll get a decision to you in 30 days!

But I have no idea, they probably got backed up and were looking at a variety of files and are circling around to other people they already looked at. You have good stats for the school so I wouldn't be concerned. I wonder if anyone else got the email?

Only thing I can think of is that they will be getting a decision to you in the next 30 days.

At least you got a timeline. I just got the vague, "we'll get to it when we get to it" update.

I tried to read deeper into it and couldn't. Can you?

Maybe we should try and analyze their choice of font and font size?

I got an e-mail from a school in Comic Sans once. That analysis was pretty easy. Didn't apply.

I can only assume it was from a clown academy.

Yes the font, size, color, and overall structure of the message will definitely give us a clearer understanding of the author's intent.

Using my extensive background in word processing analysis, I can tell you that black text is used to convey happiness, sadness, anger, and indifference. Additionally, proper grammar and punctuation are often indicative of a professional relationship between an author and the intended reader. Specially formatted text, specifically that which is bolded or italicized, is considered "very important information" by the author, so the recipient should be sure to give these words more weight when trying to determine a measage's true meaning.

OP, if you post the email I will gladly run a full analysis on it.

Also, kerning. If Obama's birth certificate taught us anything, it is that kerning holds all of the truths.

"If you would like you application to remain active as part of our reserve group, please email us at jdadmissions@cornell.edu within two weeks to express your interest in remaining on reserve. If we do not hear back from you, we will assume you have made other plans for next year and will withdraw your file from further consideration."

Simple email saying you'd like to remain an active part of the reserve group or a more formal LOCI saying why you would attend Cornell?

Any advice on this?

Were you RD or EA? When I was deferred EA, I just gave a couple sentences thanking them and staying I would like to continue to be considered etc. I then sent a LOCI in January (was deferred in November).

I went complete today 1/14 was when they started verifying. I was going to send in a why Cornell but opted against in in fear it would hold up my application even more. Would you guys say it is too late to do so now?

I know there are a ton of factors to consider but for the sake of simplicity, how much money would it take for everyone to definitely attend Cornell?
