Same here.

I had assumed that 'ready for review' meant complete, but now I'm guessing it is equivalent to 'under review'?

Sorry if this has been brought up, but does anyone know if I can scan and email the scholarship application? I know it says to mail or fax but scanning would be so much easier and sometimes these forms have outdated language

Scan via email is fine. That's how I submitted mine.

Anyone know if Cornell offers scholarship to those who are accepted off the reserve list?

I was a late applicant and just received an interview request. This late in the game do you think that's a positive sign? Have interviews typically been for borderline candidates?

According to the school's website, "Cornell Law School awards over $4 million in institutional aid each year to new and returning students. Almost 50% of Law School students receive scholarship assistance."

Does the rest actually pay the sticker price? Much appreciated!

Well, tuition is a certain amount. The school's website says 50% receive scholarship assistance. That means 50% are not receiving scholarship assistance. Paying the tuition price without receiving scholarship assistance = paying sticker price. So...yes?

But do a bunch of people in that 50% have rich parents helping pay the sticker price for them? Probably.

Don't mean to stir the pot here, but someone I know was accepted off reserve without an interview. Was that the case for anyone else? :/

I was, too. They offered me admission, requested an interview afterwards (as a formality), and then called me again on Monday to thank me for my interview and once more confirm my admission. I received my official admission email on Monday afternoon.

Interesting to me. I had thought that you needed to interview. Did you accept, and mind if I ask your stats?

Edit: And wondering if you're any kind of URM? My friend's stats were <25%, but I'm wondering if it had to do with her being LGBT. Just curious.

Was your friend otherwise non URM?

I am waiting on scholarship info before deciding. My stats are below medians, and I'm not a URM. I am LGBT, but I don't think that factored into their decision.

You know, I actually think she's ORM - Asian. So... *scratches head* Maybe she just wrote the best personal statement that somehow spoke to the admissions folks? Or they're trying to fill a demographic otherwise.

Either is possible, but it looks as though Cornell is taking quite a bit of people off of reserve this year (seems like comparatively more movement than last year). Which is weird because there's also relatively less movement at almost every other T14. *shrug*
