Hey, anyone out there on the waitlist? What do you think our chances are this year? Please share if you've been taken off the waitlist or simply posting general discussion regarding the waitlist for this year.

    For last 2-3 years, the number accepted from the waitlist is 0.

    Waitlisted from ILR. Don't want to get any hopes up, but considering the admission rate this year was terribly low and that a friend of mine (who got accepted and is more familiar with Cornell stats than me) says that he knows a bunch of accepted people who are declining their spots, anything's possible. I keep jumping up with terror and anxiety every time I hear my home/cell phone ringing or I get an email notification.

    Any news yet, guys?? When should we hear back?

    Would giving the admissions office a call to check on the app status be too obnoxious?

    @ladyelizabeth: Ahahahaha I know that feeling way too much. I get startled when a phone rings, and I'm pretty sure it's going to give me an aneurysm eventually if Cornell doesn't accept/reject me soon.

    @mada: I think the waitlist can stay open until June. And I don't think a simple phone call would be that obnoxious to them.

    Are any of you guys that were waitlisted planning on transferring after Freshman year?
  • ladyelizabeth429ladyelizabeth429 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    I am for sure provided i meet the gpa/grade requirements.

    I got a call today and was accepted off the waitlist into the College of Arts and Sciences
  • JessEllenJessEllen Posts: 158- Junior Member
    Did you send them additional information?

    Not saying Chaegan is lying but I'm always a little dubious of one post posters... Especially in this case

  • JessEllenJessEllen Posts: 158- Junior Member
    @floralromper Did you send them additional information? Letter of recs? Recent awards? etc? I am waitlisted at the Hotel School and I hope I hear back from them
  • ColeneColene Posts: 959- Member
    Oh man so Cornell is actually starting to use its waitlist again? Good for Cornell!
  • cortana431cortana431 Posts: 5,015- Senior Member
    Wow congrats!
  • ladyelizabeth429ladyelizabeth429 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    Wow, congrats guys! Hopefully ILR goes to the waitlist too :-/
  • floralromperfloralromper Posts: 11Registered User New Member
    I sent in a letter of continued interest on why Im still interested and I listed a short paragraph of my current gpa and my recent achievements. I also mailed in an additional letter of rec from my class advisor (:

    Good luck to all! They gave me like 2 days to decide and I don't have enough time to visit Ithaca :/ haha
