It seems like this was a third wave of rejections, from what I can tell. And it might be the only one that hasn't let anyone in... I can't think of a counterpoint.


No - semantics. This is a third wave of decisions. First two waves were deferrals. Deferral > Rejection.

Has Penn let anyone in? I don't think they have, but I haven't been following that one too closely.

Has anyone with EA 11/13 complete date or later gotten a decision or deferral yet?

Sorry for those who are out. It's a bummer, but there is good news coming for you all before this cycle is over. Good luck.

I don't think they have either.

I don't think Penn or Stanford or Boston College or USC have let anyone in yet.

It looks like it's better to see EA still. If they are sending all decisions in batches, then this set should all be rejections. There are applicants who have been complete toward the end of October without a decision but applicants who were complete in early November with rejections. Hopefully this is a good sign for us who are still waiting.

Also, I thought you receive an email if accepted. True or false, anyone?

I suspect that we're also going to see another wave of deferrals. Based on the stats of those who were deferred on 11/20 and 11/24, most (all?) of the batch consisted of those who were EA complete by 10/31 or earlier. It would be very strange if Cornell did not defer anyone who went EA complete after the first of November.

I have no idea if the next batch of deferrals will go out before, after, or concurrent with the the first batch of acceptances. There's not much to do except wait (and fret, of course).

+1 - that's why I thought TODAY would be those deferrals. UGH - c'mon Cornell - just accept someone already!

Yes, you're right.

A third wave of undesired decisions, perhaps, would be a better way to describe it.

Oh, Cornell, I thought we had a chance
with my 165 LSAT, your suggestive glance
ninety-second percentile, I thought with a smile
will surely get me T14 by a mile!

Oh, Cornell, I thought this was going to workley
to me you were more attractive than Berkeley
with your mountains of snow and days without sun
your library pics- I thought you were the one!

But then, oh Cornell, much to my distress
I spent time online, specifically TLS
where I realized that all my 165 pride
was misplaced and I almost broke down and cried,

But I stayed strong, oh Cornell, I made my way through
Didn't let myself get bummed out over you
I even rebuilt my pride some, thought maybe I'd fluke
my way into your arms-make the 170s puke!

But today, sweet Cornell, checking status in boredom
I sank when I saw "waitlisted" at Fordham
So now, oh Cornell, I finally see
that you and I prob'ly aren't meant to be.

Ok so I need to pose a new theory. I'm not sure if this has been postulated yet, but I think that Cornell has split all EA applicants into two halves: those who were complete by the first week in November, maybe 11/2, and those who were complete after. We have seen the two decisions of those applicants. Deferrals and rejections. The next batch will be acceptances for the rest who have been complete in the first half and haven't heard yet. Then we will see the same happen for the rest of us who were complete after 11/2. Deferrals, rejections, then acceptances. Does this make sense? Please someone debunk this because I feel my blood pressure rising as I type. The only thing that would have this not make sense is if someone has been deferred or rejected that was complete within the second week of November. According to prior posts, that hasn't happened yet. :? Insight?

I think there was an EA Complete of 11/20 on here earlier w/ a 12/4 decision? Unless that was a typo and actually EAC on 11/02...

I am rejecting your theory on the grounds that I don't like it. I am EAC 11/12 and haven't heard yet, and I'm taking that to be good news, despite any evidence to the contrary.

But seriously, I hope this isn't true. Plenty of people with similar numbers to me have been deferred.

Nope. I'm just trying to offer a competing view based on unsubstantiated conjecture like 98% of the theories posited so far.

Still 10/28 EA complete here. Feels sort of like surviving another round of cuts on a team or layoffs at a company. I never thought I'd be happy to log in see that my status is still "10/28 EA Complete". :|
