Yeah. 2/28 --3/3. So, guess something's going on today.

That would be the third. First was the middle of January.

Interesting, thank you. Hopefully this means decisions soon.

Please excuse the noob question but where exactly does the info for the graph come from? Is it just submitted by TLS users or confirmed info? How accurate is it for Cornell to accept someone with an LSAT score 14 points below its median?

Not that out of the ordinary for certain URM groups to get in with that kind of LSAT.

It's from http://cornell.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/1213 .

Not common unless URM. If you look at the individual profiles, you'll see people getting in with those numbers are all URMs. In fact, there aren't any admits with a 153 on last year's graph; the lowest is 154.

Does anyone know when scholarships are supposed to come out? All we needed to do was submit the form, right? (i.e. no taxes)

Soon. Maybe this week or next.

If you were only applying for merit aid, then yes, you only needed to submit the form. You will still need to send in tax returns and FAFSA if you want to take out federal loans. You can call or e-mail the office if you want to make sure your file is complete.

And can we move future scholarship talk to the admitted students thread? Thanks.

Lavitz, what does it mean when someone has up to three status updates in the past 2 weeks?

Just wanted to thank y'all for a good thread - I'm withdrawing my app, so there should be an open interview spot on Wednesday if anyone is still trying to grab one. Best of luck to everyone :)

Sorry I can't be more helpful on this one, but I have no idea what that means. I've never been big on trying to predict Cornell's actions based on status updates.

If they have decisions this week, I assume it would be tomorrow. ASW is Friday, so they'll probably be busy getting ready on Thursday

In via status checker!

Still no email. I was one of the 2/27 -> 2/28 people. Really needed this. It's been a brutal couple weeks.
