Congratulations!!! Did you interview? And stats, if you don't mind sharing?


I applied 10/31, got the interview request 11/9 and completed it 11/10.

I am median on both.


Congrats!

Very fast movement. I've been ready for review since 10/25 and nothing yet. Please Cornell, give me a sign!

I do have a C&F addendum relating to a traffic citation I got when I was 16....( :roll:) I wonder if it takes them longer to review apps with C&F, even if it is minor. Anyone have any insight into this?

Probably not, I had like a half page addendum for numerous tickets and got in. :/ sorry

I've been ready for review since 10/31. I shouldn't be worried should I?

Thanks for the info! I'm not too worried (yet) since I haven't been ready for review for that long and I only applied in late October. Just wondering if that would play a role at all.

I hope not, because I've been ready for review since 10/25 and haven't heard a peep. I think you are fine, as there are many others on here who have been ready for review around the same time and haven't gotten an interview request yet.

So, this is embarrassing and completely my fault, but I need some advice.

A few years ago, I got a speeding ticket in another state. When filling out my apps, I truly could not remember if I had actually gotten a ticket or not (I couldn't even remember when or where exactly it happened), so I looked it up in my home state's court website and didn't see anything. Thus, I didn't disclose on the C&F section.
I only JUST remembered that this happened in another state. Looked it up in their website, and indeed I did get a ticket.
Cornell seems to have the strictest C&F section, deliberately stating you should disclose traffic citations. I feel like such an idiot but I know I need to submit something. Am I completely screwed?
The excuse "I tried to look it up but I forgot it happened in another state" is probably the worst excuse I've ever heard of, but it's the truth..

Sounds like a reasonable excuse to me. Just submit an addendum.

I had exactly the same problem, sent it an addendum, and they were super chill about. I was as stressed about it as you are now probably but it's a non-issue.

Same problem, sent an addendum to all schools in a frenzy - including a T13 I was already accepted to, and nobody cared.

I am in the same boat as you, but I think their office is closed for the day. :?


What are your numbers compared to their medians? I’m thinking it maybe a yield protect thing on why they’re taking so long with me


25th on both. Doubt it is YP for me :oops:

URM. Strongish softs, if that matters.

I wasn't planning on applying to Cornell because I didn't think I could get in with my numbers, but I got a waiver, so what the heck.

I actually thought I'd get rejected pretty quickly, especially from what I've read about their turnaround. That I haven't been rejected yet is the only thing that got my hopes up a bit, ha.

So...my status date changed, but I am still listed as ready for review. No interview request. Am I screwed?

No--I said this earlier, and I can't be certain of it, but from what I saw on last year's feed, there were people accepted who didn't interview. Don't sweat it ATM.

I’m a URM too but am at median for lsat and above 75th for gpa, so I think I may get waitlisted for yield protection. I also went there for undergrad. Our perspective stuff is so different I feel like they may just be taking a while to go through the interviews and giving us a response or they’re just being cryptic

The unexplained status change is nevertheless infuriatingly vague

I'm with you 100%--super infuriating. Just a reminder that you shouldn't stress! :)

I'm right at the medians. Definitely not YP in my case.
