Same here. Confused whether a ding is coming or they are just going randomly...


IN today and I was at interview requested for three weeks (got the first round of interviews)! No movement whatsoever until today (still nothing on status checker, nothing on email) but I got the call. It seems like they're not really going in order!


CONGRATS!


Thank you!!!! I'm so pumped!!!! Cornell is definitely a top choice for me AND it's my first acceptance this cycle so I am STOKED :D

Hi, all!

Congrats to all those admitted today!

I just had a quick question. I got the Interview Request 11/21, completed it 11/21. Today, my status checker changed dates and now the top part says "We have received your Kira Online Interview, and appreciate your willingness to participate in this part of our process. Our Admissions Committee will complete the review of your application, and we will contact you as soon as we have some news to share."

Any sense of how long after this change takes place a response can be expected? Thanks!

Weird, I never even got that message. Still just says interview requested.

Same - they took a looong while on mine as well. The phone call was a relief.

Just went back to "ready for review" after 3 weeks of being "interview requested," despite having done the interview. Does this mean a decision is coming?

That's what happened to me! I was freaking out so much that I missed the call lol (to be fair it came from an unknown number so I probably wouldn't have answered it anyway)

did status update change to admitted or anything? or it was just a phone call. I probably can't pick up the phone at work today...

The status update changed and I received the email by the end of the day, but I got the call at the beginning of the day. They left a voice message when I missed the call so I don't think it's a huge deal if you miss it!

In this morning via phone call!

Went complete 10/18, interview request 11/21, interview completed 11/21, status checker changed yesterday to the date 11/27 (I posted about my confusion above).

+180, but I got in. And so did others! I'm sure you're fine and will get the call before the Christmas trees all come down :)

My application is still listed as 'ready for review' and hasn't been updated since I submitted the application on 10/6/17. I have numbers that should make me competitive at Cornell (LSAT >75, GPA < 25), but I'm starting to get worried that something is wrong. Any thoughts on why my status hasn't been updated at all since early October?

I think you’d be fine so long as you let them know why you’re wearing them.

Also I just realized there might be a way to increase my laptop microphone's volume :lol:. My lack of understanding of technology is one of the reasons I'm entering this profession.


Technology is confusing. :P

When were you complete, if you don't mind me asking? I have been ready for review for a little over a month now and I'm just confused because I have competitive stats for Cornell.

If the interview requested status date changed is that significant? Or you have to go from interview request back to under review before decision? My interview requested date changed today.

I'm at the 75ths and have been complete since 10/18 with no interview request. :oops:
