I too just learned that I'm on the Cornell reserve list. Hmmm... figure its worth sticker on the off chance that I get in?

Absolutely, positively NO. If you are paying sticker, stay as far away as you can.

Please explain why?

Cornell should not be worth sticker?

They do place 50% in federal clerkships and the NLJ 250.

If no one paid sticker, our classes would be half their current size. Someone has to pay sticker. :roll:

No, it is not worth sticker. A Cornell J.D. ITE is not worth upwards of $200K. Fact.

Just called Cornell today. They told me they are starting to review Reserve candidates. Crossing fingers at this point.

Hope I get off it, but until then I am basically sticking to my plan to move to Washington D.C. (GW Law). Honestly the only reason I would go to Cornell is that it has better job prospects + prestige especially in NYC. Otherwise I heard Ithaca is turdtown.

Not sure why this thread hasn't been revived yet, but it is definitely relevant!

Not sure, but that is a good question though. I've heard about it happening, but I think the chances of that happening so late in the cycle are slim...
