Cornell Law Transfer 2019

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:29 pm

Hi all, starting this up. Admitted for conditional EA transfer program back in March. Anyone else apply to this? Anyone else also waiting for confirmation of final acceptance? Transferring to Cornell with the ability to now participate in OCI is definitely a significant plus.

Anyone else apply? I applied June 26th, interview requested on the 27th and completed the interview on the 29th. No updates since and my status checker still says incomplete. Does anyone else's say the same thing?

Called today and they updated my status to under review. Admissions said answers should be coming out this week. Top 5% at T3 school. The interview was terrible but let's see what happens.

Is this a new policy? From what I understand they've allowed transfers to participate in OCI for a while now, but only the very early admits, otherwise they cut you off and it's basically mass-mailing and an "on your own" thing (I see now you posted in early June, so this advice may be for the people who got in/applied later).

Before accepting at Cornell I would strongly suggest every be absolutely clear about your allowance into their OCI/AJF, maybe call the career office there. From what I understand they have already closed bidding a little while ago. While they may be getting a little better (I know they have a small secondary bidding period opening soon and have allowed transfers to visit the suites of the bigger firms), they are not nearly as helpful to transfers compared to some other T14 schools.
