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.
