    im pretty sure they're going to give out transfer options before their waitlist is closed

    Guys, so it is possible that there are still fall openings right? I mean, as for as international applicants from my country go, not many columbia/uchicago/berkeley waitlists have heard back either. I don't think we must assume the waitlist is closed. Maybe give it a week or two?

    Meanwhile, if anyone has heard back something concrete (not speculation etc.) about CAS fall, please share.

    has anyone heard anything from CAS ever since that first wave of emails about there being no fall spots?

    Sorry if my speculating creates anxiety @intlnavigator . My D is not CAS, but is Human Ecology.

    I forgot about the Guaranteed Transfers, @M_51222 ! Thanks for the reminder.

    I do not believe there will be Fall 2018 CAS WL openings, except for later on if few students were to get off the HYPS WLs in the summer. You can check the other threads. If those higher ranking schools are done then it is unlikely there will be summer melt for Cornell.
    I think they are reviewing CAS WL applications for the Spring 2019 admissions. Spring admissions are only for CAS and CAL right now.

    Admission for international student is need-aware, so if you need a lot of FA then your chance of being admitted is probably not as good as other students who do not need aids.

    Any thoughts on Human Ecology, @oldfort ?
  • oldfortoldfort Registered User Posts: 21,927 Senior Member
    @Winky1 - if I were a betting person I would say they are probably done (or very close). You know the process, they contact students first and do not give them much time to decide, they just keep on calling/emailing until they fill those slots. If they are so quiet after that wave then it is pretty likely they are done. Of course, this is just my guess. :)

    Praying for transfer options [-O<

    My D was offered a GT option last week for ILR, after being WL in March.

    @Oldfort Yea lets close this board and call it a day. BTW are you on the waitlist or are you a parent of one on the waitlist?
  • Winky1Winky1 Registered User Posts: 1,354 Senior Member
    @sentap, I specifically wanted @oldfort 's opinion. Please don't stir it up. I don't think they have anyone applying this year to Cornell, but they know plenty, imo. Thanks @oldfort.
  • oldfortoldfort Registered User Posts: 21,927 Senior Member
    Neither. I have been on this board for too long and have seen too much. I am curious to know what CAS adcom is going to come out with in another week.

    A friend at Cornell just told me that guarantee transfer admission is only given to American citizens and only offered to humec, cals, and ilr (contract colleges). Only after they consider internal transfer students and American students will they start to consider international ones.

    Yes @oldfort this quiet week has been surprising since, from what I heard from my seniors at high school, all of them started getting calls for waitlist aggressively after May 1 last year. However, for some peculiar reason, a lot of colleges seem to have gone quiet? (I am on the Duke WL also, and if you see the Duke thread, very few people have heard back from Trinity and none from Pratt. Meanwhile, someone who called up the AO learnt that the waitlist for Duke will be shut at end of May and still in process. One of my friends on the Harvard waitlist got an email just 2 days back saying "we are starting our waitlist discussions. Do you have any updates to give us?"). I ain't speculating anything, but this entire admissions cycle just feels so 'different' and 'off-beat' than all those preceding it.
