i just went to decision today as well, w/no email. being a 170/3.55,  i think this is a little surprising ( assuming that no email today means im rejected/waitlisted), given that ive gotten into schools w/higher gpa/lsat medians.

i have similar numbers and feelings about this

News from TLS: http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=19004&start=1275#p577845

"I went to decision on like Friday at some point I think (I'm not sure that's when I saw it). I got my Sat. mail late because it's easter.

It said that I was placed on reserve. That I wasn't "out of the running", and that they would look at the reserve applicants after they found out a bit more and then create a waitlist from there...

I'm going to call them tomorrow to ask some Q's - so i'll keep everyone posted :)"

So, sounds like a deferral/hold... since apparently they'll make a second decision later for admit/deny/waitlist.

I guess I'm eager to believe it because I think that's better than a waitlist. :D  Although, a deferral when it's nearly April already seems a bit ridiculous. :-\

I'm one of a very small handful of LSNs with my LSAT who've been complete since last year but haven't gone to decision.  Not sure what this means, but I doubt it's good.

I received that same letter last year.  I withdrew my application in May and they hadn't made a decision on it yet.

I also went decision on 3/21 and my numbers are not on LSN. I have a 3.4 index and would consider myself a borderline candidate (big-time splitter).

Sadly, I have a strong feeling that the 3/21 batch-o-decisions will be rejections. No-email means you're pretty much out-of-luck with Cornell. Unfortunately, even if we do land on the WL, our chances remain pretty dismal. According to LSN last year, only 2 applicants were pulled off the WL and deferral piles combined.

Best of luck to everyone.



I went decision, and my index is pretty high.  Not sure what that means, but hopefully it will be positive news.

assuming your LSN is accurate, that may be the definition of yp.

Well, I did apply late, but I don't think I will be an outright rejection.  If anything I would think waitlist, but we'll see.
