Were any of the questions about current events at all or was it just broad questions about yourself?


Hey, if you PM me then we can talk more.

On reserve. Interviewed 11/28. Not the best news to wake up to.

Standard "thank you for applying to Cornell" and "Your application is ready for review" 12/1

to

Same messages but today's date (12/4). Anyone have any insight on this? I'd really appreciate it!

+1! So excited! From what I have read on this thread, the questions are tricky and broader than just law--anyone who has completed an interview care to chime in?

Edit: Under review since 10/25, status checker changed to interview requested on 12/5 but no email yet.

Also interview requested! Under review since 10/25 as well, so I guess they just got to our submission week. +1 to someone chiming in with general details (I understand that we're not supposed to share actual questions)

Is there any record of how many people who interview get dinged/waitlisted? Just wondering how much leeway there is to mess up my interview. As a borderline candidate who's also socially awkward, I hope this interview isn't a make or break.

Seems like it took 3-4 weeks for many people from when they completed their interview to when they got accepted. I wouldn't worry yet, they are moving pretty slow!

on reserve, above both medians, and have been outperforming my numbers so far otherwise so i know there isn’t any major flaw in my app. safe to say it’s because i really truly bombed the interview. don’t be like me guys!!!

How long did it take you guys to get the interview request? I’ve been ready for review for a little over a month and starting to think I’m definitely getting dinged.

Making an account to see if anyone might have insight as to why I got put on reserve, especially bc they moved my app along so quickly.

LSAT: 171
GPA: 3.7

Submitted: 11/6
Ready for review: 11/8
Interview request: 11/14
On reserve: 12/5

My softs are decent, I went to an Ivy, I wrote a tailored DS (no separate Why Cornell though), and my interview went ok. Really disappointed bc Cornell was my top choice, I thought I had a good chance, and now I'm worried about my other apps. :(
