Same here. I guess we could reschedule but I don't think I will.


Just wanted to throw my .02 into this. I wasn't going to do the interview, but did. Just got my scholarship letter over the weekend, and it's on the very, very high end. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you can at all see yourself at Cornell in the fall, do the interview. and if your numbers put you in play for some big money, do the interview, hopefully get accepted, and use that scholarship money to negotiate with other schools.

This may be irrelevant for Theopliske and vivala, but it could be useful to others.


I want to second this. My scholarship simply can't be justified by my numbers alone, so I believe my interest towards attending Cornell, which was well shown in my interview, was vital in helping me get this much money.

Second complete today finally! (submit 1/28, 2/24 first complete) But I'm totally freaking out because I sent them an awesome why Cornell email, but I realized at one point I mention their environmental law clinic, but I meant environmental law society. This was not my main reason for why Cornell or the bulk of the email whatsoever, in fact I don't go farther than mentioning it, but its still embarrassing. I hope the update today isn't because they're throwing the app out after that error. :oops:

You'll be fine. I doubt they'll notice. The ELS elections are today. Maybe the new board will start an environmental law clinic. :lol:

I completed my app 1/24, first complete was 2/21. I received a second complete last week 3/17, and a new one today 3/26.

Has anyone had three date changes before any kind of interview request?

I have very similar date movement. No interview request.

When and how does Cornell give out scholarship awards to accepted students? I was admitted just recently, about a week after my interview and via email, but no scholarship included in that email. Hoping I could get a decent scholarship with my numbers.

Thanks, and good luck to everyone still waiting.

Unfortunately from what I heard, it's not that great :?

A bunch of people took longer than that to get completed so I wouldn't worry yet. Just keep holding on to the both of you!

I set up an interview and the woman said it would last about 45 minutes? That seems...long, especially for a Skype interview. Harvard and Chicago were both about 15 mins. Can anyone confirm that 45 minutes is accurate?

Lol. No, it's about 15 minutes, maybe 20 if your interviewer is chatty.

Mine ran 30+ minutes! but that was more because my interviewer and I knew some of the same people and had a longer convo accordingly.

It depends on how chatty you are, really. If you tend to respond quickly and to the point, 15 minutes would be reasonable.

My interview, which I did in person, lasted almost an hour because I told a story with pretty much every question the interviewer asked. We also got into a lot of small talk, since we are both from the area.

I'm sitting here thinking Cornell was sitting on my app or using it as kindling for a fire or something because I sent requested final transcripts almost 2 weeks ago, and I've heard nothing. Now I'm upset because I JUST got an email saying LSAC received them. I shouldn't even take a week to sent mail anywhere, I don't know why it took that long. Hope they don't think I was intentionally stalling because of that delay.
