How does Cornell notify applicants if they are admitted or not?

<p>Email? Or do you check your application status and find out? Or both?</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure you check your application status on that website. Do you know when ED admissions results will come out?</p>

<p>December 15. They post your admissions decision on your applicant ID site thing. I don't know if you have to click on a link that goes to the letter, or something happens like a huge "CONGRATULATIONS" pops up as soon as you log on</p>

<p>It lags a lot during the first few hours (5pm was when they came out for my year) when everyone is trying to access their decision on the website. I gave up and went on at 9pm that night with no problems</p>

<p>They scan a copy of your notification letter (which you receive a few days later via mail) . We had no trouble getting in at 5 PM Eastern.</p>

<p>So we do use the applicant ID site. Thanks. I was confused because someone from last year mentioned that you get a PIN number "days before the decision is made". I hope the results come out earlier, like they did last year! I'm praying for admission :)</p>

<p>They came out earlier then the intended date last year? :o</p>

<p>Yeah, December 9 instead of December 15. I really hope that's the case this year!</p>

<p>I bet it's Thursday, Dec. 8, or Thursday, Dec. 15. They post results online at 5 p.m. EST, when the office has left for the day. Admissions is then closed until Monday morning (cooling off period, I guess).</p>
