i wish waitlists didn't exist. Just reject me! i can't take the suspense!
I think they should exist but should be MUCH smaller
like there is absolutely no need to have a huge waitlist
14:41
Has anyone been interviewed off the waitlist and if so how long did it take for you to get the interview invite?
LuckyDog

Ok thanks
20:14
schools wanna fill their class, how is that possible without a waitlist?
20:15
Would they rescind rejections or just not give you a decision until their As give them one?
LuckyDog
22:58
Yeah bro I'm also confused

Cornell WL movement is very slow this cycle
If anyone is looking for a 1 bd apt in Ithaca, close walking distance to the law school, I have a lease I can transfer to because I have decided to attend a different school

Does Cornell reject off the waitlist, or will waitlisted folks just not hear back if they do not receive an offer?

@yathatyeet did you just get Rd off the waitlist? I saw it on the recent decisions
@Vikingr - sorry, but we already rented it out. I am sure you will find something that works well for you.
