I could be wrong, but I think they're simply asking us to withdraw from ALL the schools to which we applied? So that they'll know by April 1st whether to take back the $$ and give it to someone who's more likely to attend?

I'm 100% sure about this. The language is very clear (unless yours says something different lol). In fact, if they did ask you to withdraw from all schools, they'd be in conflict with LSAC's own rules. You can read Yale Admissions Dean Asha's take on it here. Of course, you can always call and ask Cornell about it if you're not sure.

I have no intention of withdrawing from Chicago's (or anyone else's) waitlist, although I will be sure to withdraw from all schools to which I've been admitted.


Oh thanks alot! That's even better news!!!

Yeah, it sounds like 4-6 weeks is the standard wait to go complete.

1+ Like I said, top choice


Mine too. If I get in, I'll be so stoked!

Had my first date change since going complete today. I submitted 1/3, went complete 2/1.


Same for me, submitted 1/7, complete 2/1, movement on 2/28

For others who interviewed...

In the email it said to expect a decision within a week of the interview, but mine was last Wednesday and I have yet to hear anything. Should I just wait for them, or is this a cause for concern? I suspect the answer is the former.

Just got the "we are emailing you because we are reviewing you application" email. Anybody respond to this? What, if anything, should I say to convey that I'm serious about Cornell.

Got the "we haven't forgotten about you" email just now as well. I'm going to forgo replying, especially since the message isn't signed with a name.

I remember a wave of these emails being sent out a while ago.

Did those who received that email weeks ago get a decision? What's the time frame ?

I receive the "we're currently reviewing your app" email exactly a week ago and haven't heard anything. That 10 day wait you had would be pretty sweet though. Does anyone else remember how long it took them from the initial review email to receiving their decision?

I think they just send it out whenever people have their first UR update?

Was immediately after, but I'm not sure if this is UR1 or 2 for me.

I think I was overly hopeful before the email. My reaction was more like, "Wait, no one's even looked at it yet?! :( "
