Did you get a email? the web said they would email. I can't beleive they're still stuck on first week of dec. :( Good luck to you though!


Nope no email, not yet anyway. Just discovered it during my daily rounds.

When I went complete, I didn't get an email until about 6am the next day.


I received the complete email at exactly 0600 this morning.

+1.. Except it was 3am my time. I was quite perplexed, although the scotch may have played a role in my confusion.

FWIW, I was 'applied as of 11/17/2009' until 1/27/2010, when I became complete. I am also an auto-ding. They are drowning in applications.

What kind of results do you guys have to get in? I am going to apply with HIGH hopes for Cornell. I have a 170 LSAT, 3.1 Undegrad GPA and 4.0 Grad GPA.....23 years old....LOTS OF WORK EXPERIENCE IN RETAIL (7 years) !! I was in leadership positions.....Had bad undegrad GPA due to my father having severe heart issues and had to support family....all will be in personal statement...any ideas and suggestions? I am applying this upcoming October.

with a 170, 3.1, and work experience you have a better chance of getting into georgetown, northwestern, or michigan than you have of getting into cornell.

Or, with a 170, it might be worth an ED at UVA.

FYI, if you're curious...

If you want a good shot at Cornell (non-URM), you're going to need at the minimum of a 167 LSAT and a 3.1 GPA. To figure out if you're an "auto-admit" (or as close as you can get at Cornell, I suppose), calculate this:

212.1 - 1.1 * GPA * ( 14.63 - GPA)

(GPA = LSDAS undergrad GPA)

And round up -- that's your target LSAT.

In your case, with a 3.1, you'd be looking for a 173 or higher.

From the LSN graphs from the last 3 years or so, if your LSAT is more than or equal to that target, you've got a 95%ish chance of admission...if your LSAT is less than that target, you're probably looking at a waitlist/reject.

The results of neurotic number-crunching. Yeah. Of course this doesn't/can't factor in "softs," but it seems to hold anyway.

Where did you get that formula from? It puts my GPA right at a 168, which is what I have...hopefully it proves correct.

Just looking at the LSN graphs from the past few years, and fitting an equation where above = almost always accepted and below = rarely to sometimes accepted. By no means the divine prophecy regarding Cornell admissions :mrgreen:

Interesting. With some rudimentary calculus I see that someone with a 2.38 GPA would need a 180 LSAT. Of course, in the real world they'd throw out the index formula and reject anyway, barring some other x-factor.

I really want to go to cornell, but I'm worried that I wont get a response in time to be respectful of other school's deposit deadlines. Just went complete late last week.

Is this a realistic possibility?

At least you're complete. I'm still waiting, applied on 12/28.

Not to needlessly bicker about something as trivial as this formula (since it's meant to be a rough guide, by no means authoritative), but I included "you're going to need at the minimum of a 167 LSAT and a 3.1 GPA" in it to account for situations like that. So someone with a 2.38 would likely, yes, be outright rejected!

A friend linked me to this thread to see this formula.

I just applied to Cornell 01/31, with a 171 and a 3.29. I saw this formula and thought "I wonder..." Popped in 3.29, and out came 171. That's funny and a bit encouraging.

Now to wait the long journey from "Received" to "Decision Reached" to (hopefully) "Admitted"

Same about a week later on both dates .... Cornell is taking FOREVER this cycle, if they had even looked at my application I would have been rejected by now.

Accepted via e-mail!!! I just got the letter a few minutes ago; they "couldn't wait" to share the news, which I really appreciate given how long it all took. Now I'm waiting for my package of goodies!

FYI: Applied late November, complete 1/29.

Just got an email of acceptance from Cornell!!!! I'm freaking out! This school was by far a reach for me and I can't believe I was admitted!

Does anyone know of ASD dates??
