Same as a WL I assume?

Yes but as far as I've heard Cornell is very friendly to waitlisted candidates with the right stats.


Agreed - I'm wondering YP? Sorry man. But maybe this is "but do you REALLY want to come to Cornell?" and if you show them yes, it will just be a small blip in your beautiful relationship. Or maybe the answer is no, and then meh.

I'm sure I'm not YP, I'm a <25 >75 splitter. I'll probably write a LOCI though. How have previous waitlistees written email to remain on the list?

Got accepted today! Not my top choice, but I really like Ithaca and am hoping for some $$$. 172 / 4.13, had my interview last Thursday.

This makes me feel a bit better about my lack of a JS1 :(

It's honestly not that bad if you've interviewed for something before. At least in my opinion. You'll do great!

I just got the request today as well.

Are the questions similar to other schools? Trying to figure out what makes Cornell's interview worse than others?

Maybe the writing portion? I'm not sure. 5 minutes of writing time felt sufficient to me. Other than the writing, it's exactly like the Northwestern interview through the same application/website.

I'd say the questions are easier than a Skype/in-person interview because they're very general, and you get time to stare into space and prep, so there's not really much happening to throw you off your game (unless you psych yourself out).

Just had a truly awful interview. Everything that I could have messed up I did. Gosh, I feel personally attacked and I practiced too. Well, guess there's nothing to do but sit around and sulk until I get my ding email. As a reverse-splitter I needed that interview to help me, but it definitely didn't. The ONE good thing was that I remembered to say my name in the first question. Rant over.

I'm sure you did the rest better than me! I'm recovering but ugh what a bummer. I wish I had just cut myself off instead of rambling to try to fill in the minute. I think that was my biggest mistake.

Just completed my interview. Definitely a little harder than Northwestern in terms of questions asked. Not a terrible experience though.

On the interview do you get time before each question to plan out your answer?

Just finished the “interview.” I thought it was kind of fun? It’s 7 questions - I think it was 4 videos and 3 written.

Finally did my interview... I didn’t think it was too bad. Definitely sounded dumb on one question, but I felt good overall.

Did my interview this morning. It was actually kind of fun! I liked only having a minute to answer because it made me get to the point and avoid rambling on.

Guys, just to be clear, the video was NOT recording during our next question prep, right? I assumed that it was not and while I did not do anything weird, I probably made some confused/frustrated expressions.
