Yeah. I had no admitted students link in my status checker so I'm not expecting great news.

This was probably discussed numerous times, but does being on reserve mean that you will definitely be on the wait-list when it's formed?

Or do they hand-pick people based on merit/showing of continued interest/other factors? What's the approximate proportion of reserve to wl?

Decision rendered 4/9 but no email. I do have the admitted students' link or whatever. That means I'm good to go...?

Cool, and thanks guys. I am 172/3.53. I'm sure this has been asked 2 million times on this thread, but do we have any idea if Cornell has any scholarship money left?

Just call. Get it over with. You'll be happily surprised or bummed out and ready to move on.

Yikes. I would expect at least a WL. Sorry to hear that. My GPA is a little higher, but not good news for me. :(

Just out of curiosity, did you all switch to "UR" before Decision Rendered or does it go straight from Complete to Decision? Really want to believe that they've at least started the process..



I think it goes straight to a decision. I also went complete 3/22. Good luck to you! I hope they have room for us by the time they get to us :)


Thanks, NervousinKC, we can only dream! I think it's best if I don't frequent this thread for a while, though, since its clearly going to be a while before we hear anything. :?

I honestly don't care at this point, personally Cornell I would only go there because its a T-14, otherwise its location honestly sucks filthy sweaty baboon balls. I am secretely hoping it rejects me, in a way, so that I can just go to Fordham in peace, but then again, what the fuck am I thinking? Of course I want an acceptance, I want to be successful!

So come on Cornellia, at least let me know already you demented fucks!
