Hey guys, has any of you tried to contact them? It's interesting when they will notify wait listed applicants about their decision.

Indeed. It's really out of our hands now, so it could be tomorrow or by the end of August. I'm not driving myself crazy over it. I re-applied this year and got wait listed "again". Like they say: "If it's meant to be, it will be". Fingers crossed...

July/August for sure. The website says the class size is 70-75, any idea how may would have been offered admission and how many would have been wait-listed?

I do believe that by the end of June most of the waitlisted ones will be notified. besides, when one has already prepared all of the documents, booked tickets, found housing etc and gets notified like for example on August 1st, how many are willing to change their plans in order to enroll to another uni ??...I'm not! so if they dont respect the prospective students, notifying them that late then they dont deserve us..anw, best of luck to y all..I will be waiting til the middle of May and then I will remove my name from the waitin list..

From experience (not with Cornell - from another school) - they can let you know about waitlist really late. They usually rank the people on the waiting list and once they see that they have an available spot - they contact the next person. No rules... They can turn to you afterthe year started. So I would not count on it. However, once you have new information (e.g., you got accepted to another good school), I would contact to notify them, saying that you prefer them, but that you are tempted by the new offer, and if they have any clue for you. It is acceptable to ask once you have a tangible offer from another school or another change of circumstances. Good luck!

Cornell lies in the frozen tundra that is Ithaca, NY. Cornell University is a FANTASTIC school, however, suffers from the fact that it is in a terrible location. Ithaca, where Cornell is located, is very very small town in the the middle of nowhere in upstate NY. It is buried in snow for about 6-8 months of the year. I am guessing for most people here, Cornell is their primary choice. Location is something to consider though, especially if you have admission to other equally strong programs located in larger cities like NY, Chicago, or DC. In addition to the fact that Ithaca, albeit picturesque, is very cold, it is a small town so opportunities for internships with firms/international organizations/NGOs etc, during the school year, are somewhat limited.

No, but my wife went to Cornell for her undergraduate studies. In the summer it is quite pretty. Upstate New York, in general is very pretty (lots of beautiful nature, the Adirondacks, Catskills, the Finger Lakes) but it starts snowing by October and does not finish until May, and I just remember feeling very isolated when I went up there for visits. Ithaca is a very small town. It is quaint, but not a whole lot happening there.
