i wish this was like applying for a credit card where they just deny me right away
Anyone know how long it takes to go complete at Cornell? I just submitted yesterday. Most schools I've applied to have sent status checker info the next day, but haven't heard anything from Cornell yet.
14:19
Cornell took 4 days to get back to me. In some cases I've heard weeks, AdComs are traveling rn and they get around to it when they do. Once you've submitted the waiting game starts, not much you can do but just sit back and chill.

Anybody else still agonizing over their personal statement? I've written at least 5 different statements now and feel the clock ticking
22:55
Maybe I'm overthinking it, but reading example after example always makes my last draft feel inadequate
