Application went under review!! I thought Cornell would only review AFTER the deadline - guess not. I am not complaining.

Fingers crossed.

Just so everyone knows, I was told by the admissions coordinator (Michael Corbett) that you should try and get your apps submitted in either R1 or R2.

I thought Cornell's R1 was more like the ED rounds at other schools, but apparently not. I was going to wait until R3 to submit, but it looks like I'll be hammering out the essay for R2.

Did he imply that submitting in R1 or R2 gave you a noticeably better chance of getting admitted than R3?

He did. His exact words were "Try and get your app in either this round (meaning R1) or by the November deadline. We are going to have A LOT of people applying this year."

That's how I read it IHateTheGMAT, R1 and R2 are relatively easier. Cornell's R3 (which is really R2 at other schools) a lot of applicants who've been rejected from their top choice schools start looking at schools a bit lower on the rankings totem pole. So it obviously become more competitive then.

Also, as sterny's experience indicates, his application went under review a full week before the deadline, it does seem there's some truth to what my student ambassador told me about the admissions process being more or less rolling in nature.

I visited school last week, and had great experience. Everyone was REALLY nice, and the professor whose class I sat in on even had me introduce myself to class.

I agree with earlier statements, there will be large increase in applications, and of course get it in only when you feel it is ready, but i suspect round 3 is going to have very very few open spots.

I had a status change to incomplete so they're looking at apps for sure. I'm going to go strangle my recommenders now since they're being so slow.... argh

Yaay! I just submitted my application to Cornell, too. My recommenders are still AWOL, so I'm hoping they can finish by tomorrow so I'm officially "complete" by the time the Monday deadline rolls around. I think it's a bad idea to tell recommenders that an application deadline is on a weekend. My last application to another school, I told them the deadline was a Wednesday and both had finished and submitted their recommendations the Saturday before! I need to keep doing this, it seems.

Oh, and I must say now that I am done, I actually enjoyed writing that whole "table of contents" for the story of my life thing. I still have to think about that Park essay (assuming I'm invited to apply for it, of course) and then it's on to school # 3!

Good luck, everyone. Do keep posting any status updates on this thread.

Alright, so application status changes to received, I get my invitation to apply for the Park Fellowship, and things seem to be moving along there in Admissions in Sage Hall.

I bet one of us on this thread has an interview invite by the first week of November.

Finally submitted my application at ~7PM EST. 5 hours before the official deadline. Phew!!!
My recommendations have already been submitted a few days ago. All my official transcripts have also been sent to the school.

Fingers crossed now...

Wishing fellow clubbers all the very best.

regards

I'm still incomplete even though all of my stuff was in as of last Thursday. The rep that I was assigned didn't pick up his phone yesterday. Hopefully they're just really backed up and I'm still OK for the first round. I'm going to be furious with my recommenders if they screwed this up for me.

Cereal,
By no means I am an official, but when i visited the admissions coordinator did say that if your recommendations get in a little late, that is ok. So long as all that you can handle is in by the deadline. Let us know how it turns out.

Hi all.

I submitted my application on Sunday. They havent updated my status as yet. Do they assign an admissions coordinator to every candidate?
