1) Cornell is going to accept you, unless they think you're using them only as a back up to other T-14 schools. They're deciding whether to yield protect you or not. I was in almost exactly the same situation and got asked for an interview. A lot of the questions had to do with why I was interested in Cornell in particular.

2) You will definitely get asked what other schools you're applying to and why Cornell should accept you. They might also ask your status at those other schools; I can't remember for sure.

3) If they don't yield protect you, they will probably offer a lot of scholarship money within a few weeks of accepting you. In my case, I was accepted by email the day after the interview. Three weeks later, after only minimal pressure (I sent an updated resume), they offered me a dean's scholarship worth $105k over 3 years.

4) This isn't just an Ithaca-area thing. I was living in Texas when the requested an interview

Thanks for the info. I just got into Columbia this weekend, so I guess they're right for wanting to yield protect. I think I'm going to withdraw today instead of going through with the interview that sounds incredibly awkward/uncomfortable.

Last week Cornell Law school asked me to resend my dean's certification because they needed it to complete the review of my file, so I thought that meant I would be accepted. I just got a letter today requesting an interview with the associate dean saying, "Although we don't schedule interviews with everyone who applies, we've begun using selective interviews to assist in evaluating candidates. Given our relatively small size and the large number of talented people who apply, we believe interviews can provide important insights for our Admissions Committee." I have a 3.62 GPA and 175 LSAT, so is it possible that this is some kind of yield protecting? Has anyone had to do one of these interviews?

ETA: I go to Cornell, so maybe this has something to do with it?
