I got the interview request within literally 2 days after I sent my LSAC report. It feels like they didn't even looked at my application or sth...?

Is Cornell giving basically everyone an interview request, or just borderline applicants? Or potential waitlists? :( :(

Not everyone receives an interview request. It’s a good sign, because interviews are required for admission and it means they are going to look at your application. It’s not a guarantee of any admission decision, though; it’s mostly just a neutral next step in the process.

Usually takes 4-5 days after you submit the application.

Thanks so much! And I think that happened on 12/18. It definitely takes a while afterward for some people to hear back after interview received (like myself) so don’t give up hope!

I submitted my interview 1/12. My status checker still says interview requested. Does anyone know how long it takes to change to interview received?

Application complete since early Jan. Still no interview request. Is it a bad sign?

Don't know how long it typically stays at interview requested but I submitted my interview on 12/12 and hasn't changed to interview received. Makes me very unsettled. I sent them an email last week just to make sure there hadn't been a technological glitch and they didn't respond...

Oh okay. Yeah that was what I was worried about as well, because some people in previous threads got really quick turnarounds.

I’m sure they’ll match if you show them your Michigan offer, or were you hoping for an offer higher than Michigan?

Well I was "hoping" for it but it would have been a surprise... I would have expected something around that amount however, but it's 45k lower. I agree on the fact that I can probably negotiate something tho!

Is interview received the final status before a decision?

Does anyone know when Cornell gets back to you in general when you are waitlisted early in the cycle?
I submitted my app in October and got waitlisted (reserve) in December. What is the general timeline for Cornell for those placed in the reserve?

Mine went back to “Ready for Review” I believe.

Oh okay thanks! Did you go UR2 then interview request? I went complete 1/3 and then interview request 1/12. I’m almost certain I didn’t go UR2. The quick turnaround is making nervous.

It might be! When did you go “interview received”?
Good luck!
