DR 12/14. No email is probably a bad sign. Thanks for the YP Cornell

did anyone get mention of scholarship in the email? I was just wondering how they will let us know of any merit aid. Would it be in the admit pkgs?


No mention of it in the email and no mention in the admissions packet. Though some people's letters mentioned that they were being considered for a Dean's Scholarship (which only a select few students get). I called the office and they said scholarship offers typically come later.

I think I'm competitive but by no means feel entitled to an acceptance. I just hate the fact that deferrals exist. You promised that if I applied by a certain date, you would give me a decision by a certain date. A deferral is not a decision, it merely allows a school to back out of its contract with you by providing a pseudo-decision.


Actually, I agree with you there. I was more just fed up with the TLSers on other threads DEMANDING Admission to this or that school. I am disappointed with the decision. But I do feel it is better than a waitlist, and better than rejected. Hopefully, you'll be in in the next few days. Good luck!

+ 1. I'm really disappointed and I certainly hope I'm not coming off as demanding admission-- I just wanted a decision lol

So no one gets any mention of scholarship (Dean's or otherwise) in the email? Thanks and I am so happy for all you guys!


In the PDF of my letter, it said I was under consideration for the Dean's; I have not yet gotten this elusive email that everyone else has gotten, for some reason. Perhaps we will get a different email.
