    Hey, mine says the same thing. I called the school and they said many applicant materials haven’t been matched up yet. They said not to worry

    @SmartJarhead okkkk thank u :)
  • betterintimebetterintime Registered User Posts: 20 Junior Member
    @SmartJarhead to clarify, these things are seen through the self-service right...? I'm a little confused because I turned in my application pretty close to the due date but I haven't seen things like transcripts boxes where they're not check or anything of that sort
  • SmartJarheadSmartJarhead Registered User Posts: 291 Junior Member
    @betterintime Hey, I turned in my application like 2 weeks before the deadline and the materials way before that and mine still aren't on there. I called and they said not to worry, and that it takes time to match things up. I'll probably wait one more week and call again.

    @SmartJarhead That's really reassuring. I submitted my materials right before the deadline like @betterintime and my portal hasn't updated. Good to hear that i'm not the only one! :)

    How did you guys send in your midterm reports?
  • MsRazzleDazzleMsRazzleDazzle Registered User Posts: 89 Junior Member
    @msport I had my school mail mine
  • harvardlaw2023harvardlaw2023 Registered User Posts: 55 Junior Member
    @msport I went to every individual teacher and got their signature, then scanned and sent to Cornell.
  • msportmsport Registered User Posts: 509 Member
    @harvardlaw2023 did they accept it emailed from you? My school doesn't do an official midterm report so I did the same thing as you - and it's the only thing I haven't sent in yet. Emailed them today to see if it's ok I scan it to them
  • SmartJarheadSmartJarhead Registered User Posts: 291 Junior Member
    @msport hey I’m doing the same thing, having each teacher sign it and then I’m gonna scan it to the schools.

    Here are my stats:

    20 Y/o, Female, Asian/Pacific Islander, Out of state, community college transfer
    Major: Computer Engineering / Computer Science
    Transfer Credits: On a quarter basis... I will have 155+ when I transfer (this is about 108 semester based)
    GPA: Will be 3.81-3.84 when I finish (kinda low but I took a bunch of classes I didn't necessarily need... my last two quarters will be 4.0's)
    Extra curriculars: solid. nothing too outstanding or out of the ordinary. i have some hackathon experience, several hours of volunteer experience, and am heavily involved on campus.
    Essay: strong.. could be a little risky but i had a few people read it and they said it was good
    Professor Recommendation: I have 1 from my math professor
    SAT subject scores: ehh.. I really do poorly under timed exams. I don't see how I am expected to answer 75 physics questions in 60 minutes and do outstandingly lol
    Resume: strong
    HS: really bad. but i made a huge improvement in college and have been taking college level classes for 3 years (since I was 17)
    Midterm report: all A's and 1 A-.

    Completed all of the prereqs for Junior admission... honestly though this is a reach for me and think i will be rejected (however still applied)

    we'll see lol. good luck to us all

    It does, you can submit your mid-term report via

    I asked every teacher to estimate my current performance and sign the form because my CC does not provide official mid-term grades. I scanned it and submitted online about three weeks ago. The status has been updated yesterday.
  • grahamcracker123grahamcracker123 Registered User Posts: 39 Junior Member
    My file has been complete for a couple of weeks, but it just showed "sent to admissions for review" yesterday.

    @TexasRosé_ We do have very similar stats! Best of luck! I heard that Cornell is one of the few "elite" schools that don't discriminate against community college applicants, so I'm cautiously optimistic. My one worry is that I was required to take some REALLY stupid, obviously vocational classes in order to graduate :-/

    Hi! I am applying as a soph. I’m at a cc in Boston but I just moved from California in August. I intend to go pre-vet so I applied as an animal science major.

    - College GPA: 4.0 (however only one semester to show)
    - High school GPA: my last three semesters were straight A’s and my last year of high school I took college classes however I messed up early hs so my accumulative wasn’t great (like a 3.7 weighted with one AP)
    - ACT: 30
    - Decent extracurriculars (phi theta kappa and started a non-profit etc) and really good midterm report (which I submitted without them asking for) that was another 4.0 taking 17 credits
    - will have 35+ credits beginning next fall from multiple things (college classes taken in hs, a clep exam, etc)
    - I think my essay was pretty good and showed a lot of passion but considering the applicant pool I am unsure if it is great

    I do not think I have a great shot at Cornell, I applied to it as my reach school but I have hope! I also applied to BC, BU, Northeastern and Tufts :) I am unsure whether I was realistic with my schools I applied to lol. I am 18 and white from a upperclass area but a single parent low income household if that is relevant.
