Cornell has those special forms that say how do you rank this candidate (very strong, strong, ...) or something like that.

The Cornell application information pdf says that they accept the LORs directly through LSAC.  However, LSAC LORs do not have that extra info, correct?

Anyway, for those applying to Cornell did you send the special form or not?

Thank you all -- this app process is driving me crazy.  I would MUCH rather be studying for the LSAT (if anyone can believe that).

I didn't use the Cornell forms.  All my LORs were sent to LSAC.  I would worry more about LSATs. :)

Thanks for the info.  I already took the LSAT in Oct  ;D but was just trying to say that that was much more fun than doing apps.

While most (all?) schools have their own LOR forms, most all seem to be willing to defer to the LSAC form.  Moreover, I think their own forms state that they professors/recommenders are free to write what they want, and that any questions on the form are merely to assist or to guide the writer.

So, you're probably golden.
