I got the admission but still waiting for the others. I didn't get any tuition waiver.

Hey everyone.

I am a Fulbright nominee and had to apply through the LSAC website. Did anyone apply on that portal here or are you all looking at the status date on Cornell's own website?

Thanks :)

I still don't know. Although I have been admitted to higher ranked schools such as NYU, I was still considering Cornell very seriously because for me it is really the classic American university experience and I love their campus etc.

But I was informed that we would not hear from specific scholarship sources before the enrollment deadline. To be honest, I think it doesn't make any sense that we have to decide to enroll or not before having heard about scholarships...

So in short, I don't know if I am going to enroll, but I am quite disappointed by the way Cornell handles this matter.

I just declined my Cornell offer including a generous scholarship - I hope they allocate the free money as soon as possible. I think others, especially scholarship recipients, should do the same (if they are certain that they will not enroll) to increase other applicants chances ...

I'm in a similar situation, I have a scholarship decision but asked for additional funding (my scholarship is less than 1/2 of what I am offered at Northwestern). They said they will reply on this by mid-April. I have asked them to at least let me extend the deadline (e.g. University of Michigan agreed to deadline extension). They refused. So I will reject the offer from Cornell this week (today or tomorrow), and I will also leave some scholarship money. I hope the money will go to other students.

Anyway, I think other schools have better approach towards their prospective students.

Congratulations to those who have been admitted to Cornell!

I am wait listed in Cornell and I am not sure about the final result. Ive been admitted to Duke and they've extended the deadline for me to accept the offer (30th April). Id like to know if its a good idea to write to Cornell requesting them to consider the possibility of expediting the admission process and declare my result before 30th April. I haven't written to them thinking that it might backfire and they'd reject my application finally. Please suggest whether I should write a mail to Cornell with that regard or just wait.

Don't waste this chance and go to Duke. It is as famous and prestigious as Cornell. Being waitlisted doesn't give you the right to ask for an expedited decision, because a decision has already been reached (waitlist). And be careful of mind deceiving games, we usually tend to see the school we couldn't get in more prestigious than the school we got in. And that is completely wrong.

In a brief, the chance to get off the waitlist isn't always good. And you have to decide accordingly.

P.S.: Coming from a guy who was waitlisted by Cornell two years ago, and declined their admission this year to go to a top 5 Law school.

I think you could ask Cornell to do that, after all you will not lose anything, except the deposit fee probably. If you do want to be a student in Cornell, an email won't waste you too much time
