They don't, but they will e-mail you if you're missing something by the time you're supposed to have everything in.

You can also call and ask if they received everything.

For those of us who were admitted today, about how long should we expect to wait till we hear of scholarship offers?

Thanks MacB and Lavitz! Now, I can stop worrying that I randomly faxed a stranger all of my financial information. And I have to say, all of you are amazing! I can't even imagine what this process would be like without the TLS forums.

Just FYI, I contacted Cornell earlier in this week to ask for an update on the status of my application and they were able to confirm that my application had been looked at by the committee and they would send me a decision within the week; two days later I received the admittance email.

I think it has typically been 4-6 weeks. The closer to the deadline people have applied, the longer it has taken.

I keep hearing Cornell are the most holistic out of the t14. Your thoughts?
(Yes we are on TLS so we know its a numbers game, but be that as it may)

More holistic than Berkeley, Stanford, or Yale? Not a chance.

Harvard invited me to apply, but I didn't. Was that a terrible mistake? The rest of the T14 doesn't seem to think so.
