Cornell WL
« on: May 04, 2006, 12:08:54 PM »
I was just looking at LSN... and no one got off the waitlist last year, and only 1 person the year before  :o

I know LSN isnt everyone, but those are quite depressing stats.

Yeah, but I believe LSN activity drops off big time after April or May decisions. I imagine that a lot of WL accepted people don't even bother going back to update their profiles.

Still, we're not getting into Cornell this cycle. That's safe to assume.

You guys still have a shot. They usually have a pretty crummy yield. But the class size is so small it might be hard for LSN to pick up those accepted off the WL.

I know from last year, cornell stated it was only taking about 10-12 people off their waitlist and that happened the week before classes started (some pulls occured the day of classes)...hth

Yeah, I'm on that list too, hoping but not banking on getting in. from what I've heard/read I guessing my chances are someing like 10 in 500, that is 1 in 50...
Has anybody talked to the Admissions office directly?
