I would assume that your rejection has a lot to do with Cornell's two year minimum rule (you must attend Cornell for at least two years to graduate) and the fact that they meet 100 percent of need. For a student like you, they would be dishing out fin aid for you to take classes just so that you can achieve the two year minimum.
@ chinsepia, u should check ur evaluation form they only accepted 45. 15 for every semester. Is this ur 3rd semester?
@ bellacose cornell accepts 60 max, if someone has 200 credits only 60 will transfer. it is 15 for every semester ur in college and 30 max if it is from high school. It is total ridiculous for someone to get denined because of the amount of credits they have.
@ aigiqinf am sorry u got denined by cornell, dont feel bad about urself, u can still apply next semester or u can graduate from ur current school since u have so much credit.
To everyone else remember cornell is need blind, My parents make less than 60k and i still got accepted.
While you are certainly entitled to your own opinions, aigiqinf was told by the director of transfer admissions at the college she applied to that their decision on her "came down to the number of credits" she had. So, I think it is quite possible to be denied because you have over a certain number of credits. Not to mention, the transfer faq page says that students past sophomore year are discouraged from applying.
Also, while Cornell may only transfer a maximum of 60 credits, there is a university wide rule tat one must complete four semesters in order to graduate.
I was just glancing over this thread and I just wanted to point out that if you have a bunch of credits from high school (which CALS will most likely NOT accept anyways), I don't think they will reject you based on that. At least I wasn't rejected...
Best of luck to everyone! CALS should be accepting about 30-40 for this upcoming semester.
From what I've seen, CAS takes about 17 percent for spring transfer. However, this includes quite a few GT's. Without including GT's the spring transfer acceptance rate for CAS is supposedly 7-10 percent.
Hello everyone! I've been following this thread since page 1 and have decided to make my first post just to throw my admissions experience out there for anyone who's interested.
I have been admitted to the AEM program as a junior. I was able to login to housing Thursday morning and then received an email Friday (Nov. 9) afternoon informing me of my acceptance. I have not received the mailed welcome package yet.
I am an extremely non-traditional student with a solid community college transcript, very few ECs, and significant work experience. If you have any questions or would like to know specific stats, feel free to message me. Congratulations to those that have been accepted and best of luck to all waiting!
