Complete today, was applied 11/20

So they claim 8-12 weeks now on decision, anyone know how accurate this is? What are the chances of seeing it earlier than that?

I think it's safe to assume the chances are low, given how long they're taking just to process applications.

It looks like they're steadily moving through applications in the order they received them, though.

Possibly a repost, but still an interesting Cornell Article

I got this X2 sent to me...


Dear Slyjoker:

We’re delighted to inform you that your application for admission to Cornell Law School is complete and ready for committee review.

If you need further information, please do not reply to this email account. Instead, please send an email to lawadmit@lawschool.cornell.edu regarding any of the J.D. programs and to gradlaw@lawschool.cornell.edu regarding the LL.M. or J.S.D. programs. You’re also welcome to give us a call at 607-255-5141. Best wishes.


Sincerely,
Cornell Law School Admissions Office


It sounds so deceiving to me. "Delighted" is the word that throws me off the most.

I think it should read:

"Dear Slyjoker, we are delighted that you gave us some of your hard earned money. If you have any questions, feel free to call - but expect a wait. We have many other individuals who also gave us their hard earned money. Good luck!"

"P.S. we sent you two emails just to get your hopes up. xoxohth "

I got the same e-mail. This is my last chance at T14, and while I have a pretty good idea how it will turn out, I hope they can find it in their hearts to let me in.

Well, I was about to just say that it is a few days til the Feb 1 deadline cutoff, so after that they will know the pool and deferred (and other) applicants should start seeing decisions.

But with the 50% increase and people from 11/1 just going complete... guess, um, never mind.

If you're taking 90 of those you will need one of these to go with it:
