aakashganga, do you remember that fax number to fax the waitlist confirmation back to Randall Sawyer? I had my volunteer director send her rec letter to that fax number.....then a few weeks later I faxed my update letter directly to Randall as well. Then I just touched base with my admissions coordinator at Johnson to confirm that both were added to my file. Hope that helps!

Raabend, whom did you send the updates? Is there an email id that you send updates to?

"The wait list is fluctuating and the number of waitlisted applications is going to change constantly now. We will continue to make decisions on the waitlisted applications at least on a weekly basis, not just near the notification dates for the remaining open rounds. In other words, waitlisted candidates could receive an offer at any time.

Best Regards,
the Admissions Team

The Johnson School at Cornell University"


I guess this is good news, but I was kind of hoping for some reprieve between now and the R3 decisions...

No not yet, I just had the call from Randall yesterday afternoon. My online status still says waitlist and I have not gotten an email yet (although they said the email would come in a couple of days).

Edit: My status just changed to "offer" online.

I've heard it's somewhere around 33%. It may be higher for R2 & R3 since the app volume went down. It may be closer to a 50/50 shot now.

How do you know the volume is down in R2 & R3?

From Johnson admissions on BW:

"Overall for R2, we're down about 13% for all applications (international and domestic) compared to last year."

They also made a similar statement that overall apps so far (Rd 1 and 2 combined) are down.

yea, so from the ask johnson BW thread

R1 : +10%
R2 : -13% (-20% internationals)

I didn't see any info about R3

Anyway, it's a negligible difference in domestic apps in R2, so the advantage seems to go to internationals.

Round 3 applications are down 10% - 15% compared to last year.


This is from the "Ask Johnson" thread on BW.

So R1 +10%
R2 -15%
R3 -10-15%
With international apps down ~20% overall.

The no co-signer loan situation seems to have scared off a lot of qualified folks, so it is definitely a good year to be an international

...if you have $150,000 lying around!
:wink:

This should be of interest to all the wait listers out there (myself included)

not that I have seen. There is another deposit deadline next week, so maybe that is a factor...
