I can't imagine they will slight you for your LSAT, but I don't know if Cornell does strict cut-offs for GPA.


I was a splitter, had exactly her same story with UR times and got dinged the next day after UR2. Not URM.


Interesting, but I'm above both 75ths and the same thing happened to me today, the update to 12/12. So I'm not sure you can really extrapolate anything meaningful from the date change regarding decisions.

Above both and dinged?

Has anyone with an updated Interview date of 12/8 heard anything yet?

Can rejections be expected around the same time frame as acceptances?

Wait, so are we saying ready for review with a date change is equivalent to a UR?

I applied late October and "under review" again on 12/12.

I'm guessing this is like a second round of review which isn't really good news. I'm right at their medians so I don't really know what to think.

FWIW, I'm LSAT>>75 and GPA at median and had a date change and no interview request recently, also applied in October. I'm not sure it means something negative (or at least I hope so).

I did, on the 7th, so I guess it has updated the date, but not the status.

I'm gathering that Cornell's been making decisions on applications fairly quickly after one completes an interview?
