I applied 12/23 and went under review on 1/17


I applied 12/25 UR1 1/17 so similar timelines but nada. 169/3.66 for reference. Cornell show me some love!!!

URM? I have a 3.7 but only a 157 so I'm sure you'll get one too if you're a URM.


Nope not URM. Good shit tho!!! I know someone (AA male/LGBTQ) with a 150 something/ ~3.9 get in ED in Sept.

I didn't apply ED but honestly I just feel blessed to have been invited to interview. My chances are slim to none but you never know! Your numbers are on point so I'm sure you'll at least get an interview invite. By any chance, do you happen to know the likelihood of acceptance from those invited to interview?

I got my interview request today as well! I went complete 11/27; my GPA is low for them but my LSAT is right on the nose.

That was hard! You have 1 minute to reply by video and 5 minutes to write an answer to questions and that isn't very much. You think it is, but then, well, it's not. I don't think I finished anything completely. Oh well, Cornell. I will love you even if I didn't give you enough to love me. :( Lighting candles!

Hey everyone, I got the call this morning! However, my status checker still says "your application review is complete" and I haven't gotten an email yet. For those who have gotten in, is that unusual? I keep obsessively checking and nothing changes

Are you sure it wasn't a prank call?









:mrgreen: Just messing. Congrats!! It took a little over a day after getting the call to get the email. Your status changes to "congratulations you're admitted" once they send you the email.

For those who received an interview request - how long did you have to wait until you got one after submitting your application?

Long time lurker. ED to Cornell. 25 < GPA < 50, LSAT = 50. Comp Sci major with a tech spin on app. Just got the call from the dean and I'm in! Went complete in early January and interviewed on 1/11.

What's the likelihood of acceptance if you received an interview request?

Its a necessary condition, but I don’t think anyone can give you a percent. It just seems to be one of the steps of the process.

Perhaps not an actual percentage, but would you say more people get accepted after an interview than rejected/waitlisted? If you don't know that's fine too.

Ello. I got an invitation to interview. I've done Kira interviews in the past, but never with a written portion. How much did you guys write in the allotted time? Thanks a ton.

I wrote a solid paragraph or so.

Also I’m pretty sure I’ve already told you this, but you have a 10/10 username. :lol:

From what I've heard, it really varies. For one, I typed up a storm, but for another I didn't feel that was necessary and wrote something more short and succinct.

I'm a writer and having the chance to type rather than just talk into a camera felt like such a saving grace.

So for scholarships you just have to fill out the form and email it to them? Its just the one page thing? Im planning on sending CSS and FASFA a bit later, is that an issue for their scholarship form?

The interview sketched me out and I thought I wouldn’t get in because of my awkward answers but I just got the call that I’m in :)

Yeah just that one page. I got my scholarship offer with only CSS filled out so far so FAFSA doesn't have to be sent yet. Not sure about CSS.
