Also, does anyone know how Cornell views multiple LSAT scores? I went from a 162 to a 168 but did not send an addendum, so I am curious as to how they will weigh the scores. Thanks.


I had a 164 and a 168, applied at the end of January and got in a month ago.

I applied after the Feb 1st deadline.

I don't expect to get in really, but I was excited after I got my February LSAT score, and the admissions office said they'd still accept my application.

SHIT.... High LSAT, Low GPA, that means they are not really looking for reverse splitters...

I wonder if they're trying to up their median to 168 this year.

I have a high LSAT and medium gpa (3.4, 169) so hopefully that bodes well for me. I sent a LOCI along with my "request to remain on reserve" letter, so hopefully its good news. I am set on going to GW and D.C. sounds amazing, but if Cornell accepts me well I can't pass up the T-14.

Wow congrats to everyone who got in today. The good news for us still on reserve is that their are still seats open(hopefully after today), and they have started to at least review the reserve applicants.

Do we know how they're notifying admits off the reserve list? Is it still via snail mail?

Thanks! Can't wait to see you all in the Fall. For the recent admits, are you guys planning a trip to visit in the next few weeks? I'm in California so it is kind of a haul.

Well, this turn of events in the thread prompted me to send off a LOCI. I made it very brief (3 sentences), since I doubt that a grandiloquent letter would help me at this point. Plus, I already wrote a melodramatic and overearnest "Why Cornell?" addendum with my application, so I doubt I could top that effusion without melting into a pile of adjectival goo.

I was actually planning on waiting to send out a LOCI until early June, so that I might be fresh in their minds when they started to re-review, but apparently I was very wrong in that mode of thought.

No waitlist. I was on "Reserve" following an early action deferral.
