To be more specific, he has worked the past 2.5 years at United Health Group and is starting a new position at Thrivent Financial on Monday. He does corporate innovation stuff and could really work in any kind of business that needs innovating lol.

Corporate work in Ithaca is virtually nonexistent. Most law student spouses find work teaching or working for the University. Rochester, Binghamton, and Syracuse are within a somewhat reasonable commuting distance, and I'm sure more companies are based there, but I'm not sure what the corporate employment prospects are like.

Definitely not too late, but it may take a little longer for them to get back to you.


That's relieving to know. So I am looking at end of Jan for interview if at all?

I interviewed around then, too, and my status checker still says "interview requested." However, I submitted my interview way after the 10-day mark. Even though I was in contact with Admissions and Kira Talent's IT people to make them aware of the situation (technical difficulties -- had to travel out of town to get a strong enough wifi connection) and explained that the delay was in no way indicative of my interest (or, rather, lack thereof) in Cornell, I'm still worried that they're planning to WL/ding me for failing to submit it on time. :(


I'm hoping the wait isn't necessarily a bad thing, since Cornell hasn't been shy about waitlisting/dinging a bunch of people soon after they interviewed.

And I'm sure a tiny bit of a train wreck on my end.


Do you happen to remember the questions you were asked? I am preparing for mine now

Ok, that makes me feel better. I haven't been watching Cornell's movement too closely partially out of fear and a sense of impending doom. Another factor might be if you retook the LSAT. Presumably, they just got my Dec. score and had to add it to my file, which would also explain why it's taking a bit longer to hear back.


I think the wait is a good thing! For some people, they were rejected before their score even came out.

My status has been ready for review since 12/12. Anyone have any sense of how long after that you should hear back about an interview/admission status?

Sorry to everyone getting dinged/placed on reserve :(
Surprised because almost all of you have numbers that would, IMO, are strong enough for Cornell...which is why I think it's weird...

Did you all interview?? Did you find out via statuschecker or email??

I didn't interview. Got the email then saw someone on here say they saw it via status checker so I peeked at the status checker as well, which was updated.
