By email. It was a quick turnaround after I submitted the required forms

I didn't even print and sign the stuff last year. I just used a pdf app that let me fill out the forms and squiggle my signature with my pointer, then email it right on. No one complained.

I got waitlisted last week and just received via email an in-person interview request in nyc... what does this mean? Is this supposed to give me any advantage of possibly getting off the waitlist any sooner than waitlisted applicants normally would?

Same happened to me just now. It's confusing.

Same, was invited to interview in person.

Does this mean we have a higher chance of making it off the waitlist? I thought they would only start doing this in April.

Hearing about waitlist interviews makes me wonder what the heck is going on with my app......applied in November, interviewed December, and survived the bloodshed...expecting a ding/waitlist at best at this point :(

Just went UR again after my interview. Anyone have a ballpark for how long it takes after this last UR to get a response?

I also received the waitlist interview email.

Maybe they waitlisted too many of us? I'm hopeful.

From what I've read on here, it seems like you can expect a response today, or next day, tops.

My status just went back to "ready for review"...

I'm started to get really worried about my application. Submitted 11/09, UR2 12/12, and I've been sitting at that date ever since without hearing a word. I wonder if there's a method to cornell's madness, because it seems weird that they would keep people waiting months just for a ding or WL.

I submitted the exact same day as you, and have also been UR since 12/12. Solidarity.

The Cornell blood bath continues. I'm less optimistic about getting into Cornell as I am getting into Columbia at this point
