fuck its been 2 days for me and im already losing it lol
is it safe to assume that interviews this early in the cycle are near guarantee for A? i think most II->WL/R are from closer to the deposit deadline
for cornell
16:01
cornell will not get to us december applicant interviewees til like 2025 at this rate
Feeling that
hopefully they get back to us soon

Judging by how this cycle's going for me, I would be shocked if my interview at Cornell turned into an A. But if it did, I would be 99% likely to attend.

^ Make that 100%

Checked the data this year. Seems like the conversion rate is pretty decent as I hardly noticed many got WL or R after interview. Is that a delusion?

@OD2024: the conversion rate is pretty good, like 60-70%
Oh man they have crept up to the IIs from the day before mine... eeeeeek
is the communications section disappearing and reappearing a bug or should i be adding that to my calculations when reading tea leaves
I would say it's a bug, these status checkers are finnicky
makes sense
16:23
I put the L in Cornell :(
16:36
Mine went back to "in review" after being at interview received for a while so I'm fully expecting a WL or R now
I emailed cornell the other day professionally saying i was on my knees for them

@becksbridge: does your application status checker not even mention the interview or does it say "Application in review -- interview"?
16:52
@8888887777776t6t: it just says application in review but the interview history shows up in the communications section
8888887777776t6t
17:03
@becksbridge: I see. Mine says, "Application in review. Review in progress -- interview." Regardless, I expect to be waitlisted shortly. Would be disappointed for sure. Good luck!
17:49
pls not them accepting every december applicant from my ii date and not me
@8888887777776t6t: same here. Good luck to you too! Maybe we're being too fatalist, we'll see!
Does anyone have any advice for the interview?
Question for those who interviewed: I did my Kira on Friday. I haven't received confirmation from Cornell that it was received, and my status tracker still says interview requested. I got an automated confirmation from Kira when I finished though. Should I reach out, or does it usually take a few days for them to process it as received?
@RomulusTheDragon: Cant share info about the questions, so just be well rested and try to relax. Example questions from past years can be found on 7sage and give an idea of what to expect

how good of a sign is it to get an interview a week after going complete? I'm at 25th for LSAT and above 75th for GPA
