Anyone who has sent an ITA that has been successful - how long did it take Cornell to get back to you?

Same question. Submitted an ITA last week on Monday (9/10) for the second week of October. No response yet besides an acknowledgement.

Thank you all! I sent mine at the end of last week so I'm hoping to at least receive acknowledgement soon.

For anyone who has attended this interview - does Cornell offer student hosting at all? Or do we have to book a hotel/Air BnB?

Hey guys, random question... So I had to drop my english class that I'm taking this semester because it didn't work out with my schedule. This means that I only have one completed and won't complete the two required by january. Do you think this is okay if I tell them much later (if I get into the school). I am planning on completing the second one but during the spring semester...
I would just call and ask. If it's a strict deadline you could look into a fall or winter course at a local CC

I am about to send an ITA, I am responding to the main address, but I'm also not sure if this is right. Also do we mention the school we have received the other II at?

I'm about to send an ITA letter to a school I have no business in contacting. Let's see how this goes, lol.

For people who sent an ITA, did you send it to their main address or the application update email?
I sent it to their update address [email protected]. I got an automated response saying it was added to my file, but otherwise total silence since (about a month ago). So I think I did it right but to no benefit.
Edit: to add, include the email body as a pdf attachment as well as in the body of the actual email

I am about to send an ITA, I am responding to the main address, but I'm also not sure if this is right. Also do we mention the school we have received the other II at?
I wouldn't mention the school, just say you will be in the area

Hey everyone :). Sending good vibes to everyone who's interviewing and those still waiting to hear back. It might be a little early but I wanted to update y'all, WCM is planning on making an announcement in 2019 about debt free tuition, so keep your eyes peeled.

It took them 8 months to respond to my ITA email lol... I interviewed on their penultimate week and got accepted two weeks later. So don't fret if they aren't immediately receptive to your ITA!


p.s- Feel free to msg me any questions you have and I'll do my best to get back to you.

It was in our student council meeting between the Dean and med students.

I take it to mean it'll be more in line with what Columbia is doing, as opposed to NYU's straight up no tuition. We don't know much as of yet, but I'll update when we find out more. That said, I found WCM's existing financial aid to be very generous. They are very loose in defining financial need; I received more from them than any of my instate options, and it was almost on par with full tuition scholarships I received from other schools.

Has anyone sent an update letter (new pubs, etc) to Cornell? Their portal doesn't seem to have an option to do so, and I can't find any info on their admissions page about their update letter policy. Is anyone better informed than I am?

Hi. Does anyone know the policy on sending updates? If you sent an update, was it via email? Thanks!

They're not rolling admissions, so they don't send decisions until March

For those of you who sent ITA requests, how long did it take Cornell to respond? It's been over a week now since I got the acknowledgement email.
