Still waiting for my app to go complete. Are they ever going to process it?? Should I expect a rejection since it's so late in the cycle?

Cornell seems like its the slowest of all the schools.

So...I went complete last week (applied 1/5), but would it be worth it to send any sort of an update loci type letter? I know they haven't even glanced at my application, but I do have something to say. Thoughts?

I was accepted EA, and was wondering when we start hearing about need aid. Also, I didn't see it but other than the need access and FAFSA is there any other form I should have filled out?

Yes: http://www.lawschool.cornell.edu/admiss ... or_aid.cfm

By the way, you should probably ask these questions in the Cornell 2013 thread.

Last weekend and this weekend are the ASDs, so they are doing things related to that I'm sure. Also they are probably waiting for some people to withdraw to see how many spaces are left. 50% increase in apps means many more rejections and waitlists have to go out.

Congrats, 0L! I just got mine as well. They don't give you much time, do they? We only have until April 1 to accept.

Thanks! I dont think it is enough to pull me from Chicago though, so I will probably withdraw soon. I tried to email Chicago seeing if they could raise my scholly and they came back with "we need an offer from a peer school to reevaluate" bitch slap to Cornell haha.

I don't think anyone who has gotten a Dean's Scholarship so far is going to take it. I better wait to get my scholarship app in on 4/2 so they can give me all of the money yall turn down.

If I remember correctly, those that are only interested in merit based scholarships do not need to complete any forms, is that correct?

Thanks all!

Wrong. You need to fill out the scholarship form, NeedAccess, and send in both your's and your parent's full and complete tax information.

What you need to do in visual form:

Really? Wow that's certainly different. None of the other schools I applied to requires that just to be considered for merit based scholarships. Do you guys know of other schools with the same practice?

None that I have been accepted to. Good luck getting it done, I hope to mail mine out today after a month since starting.
