Did anyone not interview and still get in?

It's a necessary condition.

I was waitlisted. Lsat is 169, gpa is 3.66-3.7, and I'm from the Midwest. Submitted in mid October. Pretty devestated to be honest.

Do they ask everyone who eventually gets in to interview?

I applied 11/17 and went "ready for review" on 12/12 but still have heard nothing on a decision/interview request. Bad sign I'm assuming.

I've been ready for review since 12/12 as well and I'm at or above both medians. I don't think it means anything bad but I would like to hear something from them soon.

I'm sorry to hear that. On the bright side, you have strong numbers and should get in elsewhere.

I appreciate the kind words. I've been waitlisted at four of the t13 thus far. Don't expect to get into the t6. But hey, that's what retakes are for lol

Rejected. Super splitter, LSAT >>75, GPA < 25. Not terribly torn up about it, I was honestly more upset about Vandy waitlist. Good luck to all you guys and brace yourselves for those winters!! ;)

Status checker finally changed from "Interview Requested (12/21)", when I interviewed, to "Ready for Review (1/19)"

That's quite surprising. Was there any other aspect of your application that was lacking, do you think? Anybody else have an explanation for this?

Cornell's LSN is a bloodbath this year. They dinged a 3.8/173.

I hear they got a new admissions dean and it looks like they're really gunning to raise their medians.

Dinged. Submitted 1/4, ur 1/12.


Confused because that's like, a really fast turnaround I'm almost wondering if there's something critically wrong with application. Lsat at median gpa <25.

Sorry to hear that :(
I think it also has to do with the timing of your application - it's pretty late. Late applications tend to hurt your chances at smaller schools.

I applied last year at almost the same exact date (1/4/16) and got dinged in a month.

Either that or they're looking to protect their yield percentage.

Yeah, it's probably a combo of that and then ranking hunting. Probably just a bad cycle for me to apply to them.
