I went complete on the exact same date and also have the same date change. I'm a splitter, GPA = 25, LSAT >> 75.

Maybe interview request soon? Or maybe it's a WL

Follow up, it seems like most people who went UR2 without getting an interview request were put on the WL :cry:

The post-interview wait is not very fun. Consensus is the results can come back anywhere from a day to a month later. My email is constantly refreshed accordingly. :D

Did my interview yesterday. Waiting with the self-made assumption that it will take at least 10 days for a decision.

The context was indeed political but the precise question simply tested my general aptitude and on the feet thinking.

Edited to remove reference to context of Qs.

Anybody on the reserve list going to NYC or DC in the coming days to interview with admissions? How much of the reserve list do you think is actually making the effort to do this, and what % of those who do interview do you think will end up being accepted? Is it more about the displayed effort or about the substantive interview performance (I realize both come into play)?

The context was indeed political in two (north south dakota pipeline in one & presidential election and cyber security in another) but the precise question simply tested my general aptitude and on the feet thinking.


+1 many of my questions had political undertones. Strongly think that the questions are targeted rather than randomly generated. PM if you want my thoughts behind this.

I keep hearing this and I would love to know what specific political questions people got. Mine were entirely behavioral, so this continues to surprise me.

Just FYI, the dean explicitly states at the end of the interview that it breaks the integrity of the program if you discuss/disclose the interview questions - and that Cornell frowns heavily upon that. Seems like not a great characteristic for future lawyers to be straight up ignoring the ethical obligations presented by a school you are hoping to attend.

Did the interview a long time ago so I don't remember that part, sorry! Just so curious after all this talk of political questions. I retract my previous post. :shock:

I think your comment was fine - I was mostly directing it to the person who was stating what their 'political' questions were about. I think in the interest of fairness, going into topical specifics is not cool.

In general you pretty much have to expect any law school interview to have a behavioral component - so like I said, I think your comment was totally in line.

Think you are referring to my post. I merely mentioned the context not the precise questions which is what would have breached the 'program's integrity'. Still edited my post to remove the context of Qs by of abundant caution. Unable to edit the subsequent posts where I am quoted though.

I came here to ask the same thing... they said they would confirm our preferences yesterday, glad I'm not the only one who didn't get the confirmation email I guess :-/


same :( it's sort of unsettling though. I was looking forward to finding out when and I'm scared it might be because I didn't give enough availability.
