I understand being risk-averse, but this.


+1. We're all taking huge risks here. At the very least we're giving up three years of our lives to enter a profession that is incredibly overcrowded.

I asked earlier, but after my status date going from 12/12 to 3/4 today, anyone care to guess how much longer it will be before they issue a decision? This shit is killing me, especially since one of the decision options is the waitlist; i.e. "We decided not to decide yet."

Good luck dude!

Ok, so Cornell's deadline for all of the financial aid stuff (including tax returns) is 3/15. My parents won't be submitting tax returns by then, any thoughts? I did all of FAFSA and NeedAccess based on estimates, should that be enough? Should I just send them in whenever they are finished?

Also, as a non-Cornell specific question: I only sent NA and FAFSA information to schools I had been accepted to, should I go back and add the ones I'm still waiting on rather than adding them later if I'm ultimately accepted?

For the 2nd question, I sent NA and FAFSA to every school I applied to, excluding schools that had rejected me, including schools I'm still pending at. It's just less to do later if I get accepted.

Anyone knows if they rejected any URMs yet? Been complete for about two months now with no movement other than the "we'll get to you when we get to you" email. That said, Cornell is a far away dream for me :oops:

Cornell held me way back in November and nary a word since then. It's highly frustrating especially since they started rejections a while ago so if they were going to reject me they could have done it already.

A bit confused on the Cornell Law School Financial Aid Information Sheet: do you only need to send this in if you get accepted? I'm still waiting on a decision and just came across it on their website: says admitted students need to have it in by March 15th, but pretty vague on all applicants.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad that I'm definitely Rahm in this picture.

The theme of pervasive indifference in this cycle continues...

o_o what type of URM? I am surprised they didn't outright accept you with those numbers... Even non URMs with those numbers get in
