Any news from Cornell


Mcevoy

Folks -- I am still listed as completed...but no decision. Is that a good sign or bad sign? My completed list has been in place since end of January...

I am already in at Berekely, thoughts on Boalt Hall or Cornell?

Yeah, I'll elaborate. There are no rankings. It's just more appreciated by recruiters. I'm currently attending a top business school here: I don't want to brag but outline the fact that our law professors are mainly partners from top law firms and have all told me I should go for Cornell instead of Penn (even one who attended Penn !!), since its LLM has a better reputation here. However, that may not be the case in other countries.

The same information is applicable to law schools such as Virginia, Michigan or Northwestern, even though it MAY have a better reputation in the US.

Hope this helps ...

Interesting... Could you please elaborate in what way Cornell is more appreciated in France (are there any rankings? why is it a better choice than Penn ?)

Hi everyone,

I got a letter from Cornell dated 17 Mar just today. Unfortunately, I only made it to the waitlist.. My application was very late, I only sent stuff just a day before the deadline of 1 Feb, I recall.

I will send them an e-mail soon to them to say I would do anything to get admitted (!), but if any of you are in the same situation, I would appreciate some advice on this.

Many thanks in advance!!

Hi Elan,
If I were in your shoes, I will write a courteous e-mail to Cornell Admission Office and ask them that if they have made a decision in my application because I am afraid that I have missed the mail. I know how you feel, this is an experience of tormenting one's mind; I think you shoule let them know how desirous that you want to get into this school.

Hugs,
Michelle

I think Cornell is more appreciated in France because of the scholarships offered to the students by their universities in France, just like scholarships to San Diego university etc. And it is a plus because it is in New York state. Take for example North Western, though it is in the top 4 for MBA, it is not popular in France. So ranking in your own country sometimes do contradict the US ranking. U Penn is no. 10 and Cornell is no. 14 in some French ranking.

Hi Elan again,

I forgot to answer another question of yours - whether or not I had heard from them before I received the letter yesterday. The simple answer is no.

I did not receive any e-mail or anything, and I had not contacted them to hassle them to reach decision either, since I was almost giving up on them!

But you should probably contact them, I myself will contact another school that I have not heard anything from them since Dec.

Best wishes

I am living the same problem. Admitted in both Cornell and Northwestern. I am little bit favorable to go to Cornell. As I want to pursue my carrer in my home country, Cornell is far more prestigious here. And you, what's your decision until now? I also need your help/opinion. Many thanks!!

I received the notice of completeness from Cornell on March 20. After a couple of days, I've been contacted by Cornell University, which asked me to provide copy of my certificate of attendance of the columbia university summer program. How should I consider this?
Anyway, the problem is that the Institute of Law and Finance in Frankfurt set the deadline to accept a place in their LLM Program by April 14th.
I am almost sure I won't receive any reject or acceptance from cornell until the end of april / may.
I would accept the place at ILF. Does any of you think that the communication I received from Cornell means strong interest for my application?

Hi Lenny,
Just like you, I am also more interested in Cornell since that their employment rate is higher than NW and it's more prestigious than NW. By the way, I am from Taiwan, and you?

Hi Gio!

I know very little about Cornell, but I will give you advice that is usefull whatever institution you applied for: Give them a call, explain that you're facing a tight deadline from Frankfurt and therefore you NEED an answer as soon as possible. If you're willing to choose Frankfurt in case Cornell keeps silent, let them know that: it is not bluffing at all, it is just warning them of what are most certainly unpredictable consequences (from their perspective, of course) of a longer waiting.

Concerning your question on the significance of their communication I guess the answer is YES: they seem to show interest in your profile and credentials, otherwise they would not ask you to confirm the element mentioned in your application. At least this is what it is rational to presume. But we all know how irrational any graduate office can be, at least considering our experience during the last couple of months...
