No they never give decisions over the phone, they were just checking to see the address to which it was sent.


Well I would tend to agree with this. BUT, when I asked for a decision I got the feeling if it was good I would have been told FWIW.

The Admissions Committee has reached decision on your application file and you will receive a written decision soon. Please be patient with the postal system. Please wait for 10 to 14 days to receive your written decision before contacting the Admissions Office.

Yeah, that's definitely wrong. They did give decisions over the phone last year and they let people know they had deferrals after being called this year.

Thanks Robin I read that. I called asking about my address. I also figured I would throw in a question regarding my decision. People have gotten their decisions in the past over the phone occasionally.

EA Complete as of 10/5 and no decision for me. They do give out decisions over the phone though.

EDIT: I am above 75% on both LSAT and GPA

Went complete earlier than these folks, but no DR. Numbers are a bit higher than theirs, but far from an auto-admit.

I think we might be seeing the first real decisions of the year here -- the initial mass deferral may have taken place because Cornell wanted to get an idea of the applicant pool before opening their gates. Now, having reviewed 800 or so applications to date, they have an idea of the market.

I hate to say this, but those folks who applied EA in early September may end up getting the short end of the stick -- and they'll get it because they were too early.

Agreed...how can something be too early? We know that they review on a semi-linear pattern. First come, first serve etc.


I am also sorry to be one of the first to say it, but I dont know if there will be any acceptances this go around. Total speculation on my part though.

I think I may have to agree with you both, reluctantly...and sadly.

It feels good. Wrap yourself in the warm blanket of hopeless, bleak despair.

I think you guys are just collectively driving each other insane.

But you enjoy it.. you masochists. Don't worry. I'm one too.

I prefer to have low expectations in the law app process over having high expectations and then getting crushed into complete despair.
