+1! Cornell, I already live in rural, upstate NY. I own the appropriate winter gear. I won't bitch about the snow and cold because I don't know any better. Accept me pls.

Yikes, sorry to hear that. You are in at Georgetown so it isn't all bad. If Cornell is still your first choice write the LOCI about why you still want to go there. And it might be a long wait, so you'll have to be patient. Sorry. Good luck, though. You have lots of good company on the reserve list. :)

Really? With a 3.46?

I'm not trying to be rude, JC1988...I just have very very similar numbers and do not at all have my hopes up for NYU.

I submitted my app via LSAC on 1/19. Kinda late, I know. Anyway, I have yet to receive ANYTHING from Cornell at all. I realize they have a lot of applicants this year, but has anyone else experienced this? They are the only school who has yet to respond from the 19th when I applied.

I'm a bit worried, as Cornell is probably the only T14 I have a shot at, and I'd really like to go there. I tried to create a status checker account, and it said that they have "No Record" of my application.

I doubled checked LSAC, which says that they have both sent the application and my report as of 1/20. Anyone have any sort of experience like this? I don't really know what to do. I'll try e-mailing, I suppose.

Cornell is ridiculously swamped with applications. If you submitted on LSAC on January 19th, then I wouldn't worry.

I'm the latest poster to be relegated to Cornell Purgatory, although it has become quite clear that I'm going to be on the outside looking in. Oh well.

This gives me hope... How quickly after sending your app did you receive an email from them (like.. any email at all, not just this one)?

After sending my application through LSAC I received an e-mail confirming their receipt within a week ... I can't give you the exact date b/c I do not have access to my work e-mail. I did not receive an e-mail (that I know of) regarding my complete status. I used the status checker.

Why won't some of you get accepted so we can talk about going to the ASW.

I remember a while back someone was asked to interview. What happened with that?

Also, has anyone been asked for fall semester grades?

When someone like veritas actually expresses "dislike," you know that the object of this uncharacteristic emotion is BAD.

I don't like it either.

EDIT: I don't think that he could dislike the new one.

Not a Cornell applicant. I just dropped by when I saw that Veritas had posted because I hadn't heard from much him lately.
