Decision for me too. Oh well.

Why do you assume that's bad?  I'll bet you I'll be welcoming you to the school in a few months. 

UMich WL update did state that they will be releasing a lot of people and keeping a few.  Te ones who they will keep will be notified by e-mail, so, it is safe to assume that if one is at decision and still hasn't received an e-mail, he or she is rejected.

Yeh, I was complete last time I checked, so the status checker change is recent.

I think most schools have a roommate referral service.  I think you should check that.

Just checked my status checker and saw that I am at "decision."  Not a good sign, considering UMich's last WL update. Anyone else had their status checker updated?

Any word on when the reserve-listers should expect to hear from Cornell?  Still the first week in June?

I called them today and was told that deferred applicants will be reviewed very soon.

UMich's WL is known to be very small, around 100-200 people. They might give out 400 WL offers, but they retain a small number of those.

It looks like UVA might be getting ready to mske more offers than usual, if they feel the need to yield protect the waitlist.
Maybe, or maybe they just get tired of people writing LOCIs that don't quite say what they need to say... so the admissions office wrote the LOCI for them.

I think this is the more cerdited version of this offer.

Plus, so many LOCI's tell schools that that school is an applicant's 1st choice which is more often false than true.  UVA's offer of binding agreements for WL applicants will eliminate those applicants who are unsure about attending the school.

I've still got my fingers crossed for another upcoming super tuesday!!! (okay, more like :-\)

Coming back to reality, I do hope to hear from them soon. I just hope they're still admitting some peepz, which other than off the reserve/waitlist, seems unlikely this late in the cycle.

It's not really very late in a reserve cycle.  You could potentially hear from Cornell as late as the first day of classes.

Has anyone been pulled from the reserve list, yet?

I think the reserve v. WL "better" argument is BS (although I hope I'm wrong).  Does LSN back this up? 

It's not as if more people from the reserve get in than from WL.  More think that reserve/defer is better than a WL because an applicant has a chance to has his application reviewed at least once more before being accepted,denied, or wait-listed.

I think my "decision" might finally arrive tomorrow  :-X

You could ave called the day your file turned to decision. Cornell people are very nice when it comes to dealing with ADD law school applicants.

Called them again.  Put on a reserve.  The lady I talked to told me that a decision will be made in late May - early June. I asked her if this was a wait-list, but she said that it's a reserve or a deferral.  She said most of us are gonna be rejected, a few accepted and some put on WL.   

I didn't understand this.

So, a "reserve" is a deferral?

Regardless, it's not good.

Yes, it's a deferral.  I specifically asked whether or not a reserve was a wait-list, and was told that it was not.
