I am in a very similar boat (GULC and Cornell WL's). I applied REAL late so I'm considering reapplying. But I think I'll just suck it up and head to Fordham, because you really never know with the unpredictability of a URM cycle. Best of luck to you man.

Yes, I had already sent in my deposit at Cornell. I got off the waitlist at another school so that's why I withdrew. Still, Cornell is fantastic and I'm wishing you all luck in getting off the waitlist/reserve list!

PS--not URM...let/them/eat/cake, you are very perceptive :)


You hear that Cornell? Someone you admitted thinks I'm "very perceptive". You know you want "very perceptive" in c/o 2012!

HAHA. "She calls it a MayonEgg". genius. what a travesty, its cancellation...

it was as casual as they implied it would be; and it was, even, enjoyable. i really liked the vibe i got from the whole experience. god i sound like i was at a rave lol but really, it was informal and shouldn't be stressed over.

Seriously, I was watching "Making a Stand" where we were introduced to the genius that is the "The Boblob Law Law Blog" and just thought to myself "damn, I love this show!".

Dear Cornell,
I'd make a better attorney than Barry Zuckercorn, Wayne Jarvis & Bob LobLaw combined. Okay, great--now let me in!

Good!! I'm glad you had such an enjoyable experience! Hopefully the dean you interviewed with enjoyed you just as much :)

given the above (from last Friday), i'm kind of surprised nothing has happened yet. i guess they can afford to take their time at this stage of the game?

I interviewed there a few days ago and I think that they're definitely taking their time as they have 200 people on the WL and can prolly find someone in due time for that spot.
