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?
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*
Really? Where are you seeing that? I'm not seeing a ton of people in this thread or on LSN getting pulled. Or I guess I should ask what you quantify as "quite a bit."
