I think it's just luck. Someone must've turned down a Dean's and they decided to pick someone else to get that amount. They just happened to pick them instead of you.

The nerve.

You mean 20K / year?

Can't predict success without knowing numbers and other offers, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

Does anyone know if people are actually getting rejected at this point? or are they just placing everyone on reserve until after the deposit deadline?

Lawschoolnumbers has someone reporting a rejection on the 17th.

I've been UR since 3/26. I'm a reverse-splitter, URM. Sent in a LOCI a couple of days ago that was confirmed, but my status checker didn't update. Not sure if that means anything, as in, maybe I have no file at this point, but I guess we will all know more by a week from now. Stay strong!

Because, as the person above me stated, the 26th is the first seat deposit deadline. I'm guessing there will have to be some kind of movement between now and then.

Really hope I hear something from then soon. I applied all the way back in early January and I haven't heard anything yet. Status checker said application complete mail was once on 1/25, and then on 3/08

I'lll pay STICKER TO GET IN SO PLEASE GET ME IN lol.

I wonder what usually happens to applicants who are left to the very end. Rejection, prob.

Unimpressed by ASD. Still would go if they have me more $$ but the ASD didn't show me much other than that the dean think now is a great time to attend Cornell. Real shocker there.

unsure about that actually. I dont have as much info as others here but unlike other schools Cornell rejected people throughout the cycle. TBH I am wondering why they are keeping me for so long as they had plenty of opportunities to reject me since I got complete in Jan. My thinking (and I may be wrong) is since I am a non trad URM they are keeping me at least until the 4/26 deadline to see how many URMs deposit before they make their final call about me. I could be wrong though

I have exactly the same dates! I have no idea why it's taking this long. Are you a URM by any chance?

so I'm assuming a lot of movement for all the rest of the non-decision people after the 3/26 deadline?

Application finally complete. I was told that I'd receive a decision by the end of the month, so should be hearing back in the next week! Exciting stuff.

No I'm not. I'm anxious. Is 4/26 the deadline for all schools to give decisions?
