I have to say, I am really turned off by Cornell's inefficiency and borderline rudeness to some candidates ITT. Hanging up on someone? WTF? When I started the process they were one of my 2-3 top choices, but I have bumped them down. Is this a form of YP? If you're able to put up with it before depositing elsewhere, you must really like Ithaca?
I'm starting to think this may be a factor in Cornell lagging behind peer schools in LSAT/GPA. All that money coming in and out of an Ivy League institution, and they can't afford to hire a couple of extra $40k/yr office helpers?
I would normally say, "I hope adcomms are reading this," but I know they don't have the staff for that.
