I applied Jun 31, went complete Apr 19 (due to a snafu with my undergrad institution).

If you haven't heard yet, I assume I can stop refreshing the status page. :(

I went complete in mid-march with a 166/3.8, would it be favorable to my case to send an email or make a phone call expressing my continued interest - or should I just continue to wait it out?

I plan to send an LOCI and visit if I am waitlisted, but wasnt sure if anybody took any action prior to decision.

FWIW, I was 168/3.85, complete 3/17 (app received mid-December) and was admitted last week without writing a LOCI or anything. I put in one phone call in early February asking if they had my application, and another about a week before I was admitted asking if I should still be holding by the "8-12 weeks from receiving your application" thing. These were two-sentence conversations, max-- not a "showing interest" thing.

I'm wondering the same thing, complete end of march, 167/3.4, so I need all the help I can get! Would a LOCI be somewhat obnoxious before they even make a decision?

Just got my reserve letter. It's rather cryptic. When do they start looking at Reserves again? Is it like a 'hold' or more like a 'waitlist'? I'm sure someone has answered these questions somewhere in this thread, I'm just too demoralized at the moment to trek through hundreds of posts. :?

All that information is in the letter. Cornell looks at applicants one more time in mid-May: at that point, they will either accept, deny, or waitlist you. So it is more like a temporary hold, I suppose.

Since it seems we're all getting put on reserve, I suspect it will still take unbearable amounts of time to get decisions, once they get to the reserve pile. Ugh, this is never-ending!

I wonder if large piles of cash, jewels, and exotic spices, and perhaps promises of temples being built in their honor would convince Cornell to make a decision (preferably ADMIT) about me sooooon.

The suspense is killing me. I wonder how many, if any, spots they have left open in their class. :(

I chose to send a LOCI before my decision. Unfortunately, my letter was received the same day they made a decision on my file. There's not a good chance they even read it. So, if you plan to send a LOCI, I would suggest you send it as soon as possible.

Edit: I was placed on reserve, in case anyone was wondering.

IIRC, everyone that has been interviewed, as far as we know, has been extended an offer following the interview. Therefore, I would guess that's it's used to get a feel for applicants they want to admit but are thinking about YPing. Just a guess though.

I stand corrected then.

Decision rendered 5/6 --- I know I can call and get an answer, but I've been ignoring this thread more often than not. Is there any way I can check if I'm in without calling? What about scholarship info?

You should see links to the admitted students page if you're in. If there's no links, it could be a reserve, denial, or an interview. Although, I don't think I've heard about ppl getting interviews lately.

When was the last date someone actually got accepted? In the past week or three, we've seen batches of reserve, but I wonder if they're actually still admitting people or if they've filled their seats and everyone is just going into reserve/deny piles until the next seat deposit passes.

I'm so nervous.

Did they request an interview recently, or did you?
