    Hey guys, sorry if this has already been asked on the thread, but for the Mid-Term Report, is it okay/will it still be accepted if I send it online a few days past the March 15 deadline? One of my profs can't get the form back to me until then.

    Yes, @bettycrocker03 I read the deadline was April 15th, but was told to get it in by April 1st. I am in same boat--midterms have yet to be graded

    Yup, all the ILR required classes, I've already finished all the requirements. I worked super hard to get an A in all of them. I knew I wanted to transfer even before the end of my winter quarter of freshman year at my current school into ILR, so I specifically set up my schedule for ILR (I was taking another university's course work at my current university lol)

    @keepcalmandtransfer Okay cool, thank goodness. Thanks for your help :)

    @Mastodon97 Same. I took Stat. over Winter Session somewhere else. I am at a "hidden" Ivy that delusionally thinks it is an Ivy and I am going nowhere fast. I was on the Common App. in August--I win! ;)

    @keepcalmandtransfer Wait you applied in august?
  • keepcalmandtransferkeepcalmandtransfer Registered User Posts: 27 New Member
    Not at all @Mastadon97 I just opened my commom app account then.
  • Mastodon97Mastodon97 Registered User Posts: 725 Member
    @keepcalmandtransfer Ohh lol, well good luck! Hope to see you there.

    How many of you guys are submitting an actual resume along with your Common App? Just curious.

    @Mastodon97 It's practically neccessary. Most activities require more space for a description than is offered by the Common App. I simply used the Common App space to list the details of my position, whereas the resume discusses my duties at the job, etc.

    @ILRie18 Crap, I don't really have the need for submitting a resume as I feel that all the info I want to provide is covered by the Activities space. I don't know if thats a bad sign or not :( BTW you asked me for my stats and I actually submitted them in an earlier post on this thread but I'll post it again cause I'd love feedback on it.

    Bengali-American
    HS GPA: 3.3-This was due to a lot of family and personal troubles.
    ECs: Not that much, just some volunteering.
    SAT: 1980
    ACT: 28

    College GPA: 3.8 (I'm currently a sophomore).
    Also note that I have gotten an A in all of the ILR School's pre-requisite classes.
    ECs: -Mock Trial,- College Newspaper, College Activities Board, College Residential Education Department, Deans List, Political Club

    Got 2 really amazing recs from Professors.

    I'm pretty good at writing, so my essays are (hopefully) great.

    Just sent off my sophomore transfer application to CAS at Cornell! International student applying from a top 5 UK uni for Econ.

    For anyone that knows about ILR Transfer admissions, is it true that Ian himself calls you if you get accepted before you are notified online?

    Is it ok if the financial aid is submitted after 3/15?
  • Mastodon97Mastodon97 Registered User Posts: 725 Member

    @TransferKid14 Absolutely, since the Common App deadline is today, they don't expect financial aid info until everyone gets their portal information. I haven't even gotten mine yet lol.
