Substitute Perfect Ass for Hottest Ivy


I believe the dispute was for "coolest Ivy," but yes.


That's the thing. It isn't a dispute. I specifically said "To me it seems like the coolest ivy." That "To me" part makes your "ehhhh" a grunt.

Dwight didn't go to Cornell did he?


No, he was messing with Andy that episode. Notice Andy in the background staring at Dwight though the window.

Decision 11/20 - Oh dear god. Deep breaths.

This is my first decision. The suspense is unreal.

both of you guys have a gpa that is higher than cornell's median which is 3.61. Their LSAT median is 167. Chances are good for you guys as long as you guys are at or above the LSAT median.

You made your own username for Cornell, maybe you used something different than what the other schools assigned to you?

Cupidity, I don't know if you are doing this. But I had a similar problem and I was trying to log on to their admissions thing rather than their status check thing. Check to see if you are logging onto their status check. If you are, I'm not sure -- good luck anyways.

Yeah. My GPA is significantly higher, but my LSAT is a couple points below. Maybe they even out?

Indeed. You are a reverse splitter. I wish you the best of luck!

Cornell tends to like LSAT. Still, that's a lovely GPA. I get a feeling that this is going to be good year for high-GPA kids (lots of LSAT takers, strength of high numbers gets watered down due to supply outstripping demand).

This isn't to say that folks won't need good LSAT scores, just that GPA is going to be a stronger tiebreaker than usual.

Are people with stats above 75% showing a Decision on the checker yet? I guess that will give the rest of us an indication of whether it's time to start worrying.

Dude -- chill. Whether or not you get your status tracker, the decision will arrive at the same time. Furthermore, I have a feeling you're going to want to see how a few different schools rule on you before you make a choice about attendance. This is a process measured in months, not hours.

This being said, Cornell's office has a reputation for being incredibly friendly; I'm sure if you just called, they'd help you out.

I'm above 75% and I've been at EA Complete for over a month.

All those who are claiming to be above the 75% LSAT and GPA range, i hope you guys aren't using LSN's numbers. Most of the numbers on LSN are outdated. They mean the graduating class of 2009, and not the entering class of 2009.

The numbers may not have changed much in 3 years, but just warning you guys just in case. The median according to Cornell for their incoming class of 2009 is 167 and 3.61. Couldn't find their 75% percentile numbers.

However, i believe their 75% is 168 and 3.84. (other sources)
