    Has Cornell sent out rejectiobs to MD applicants yet? Or do they wait until the end if the cycle?

    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.

    Same! I sent it on 10/10 and Cornell never replied (for MSTP). They probably looked at it and were like swerve! :laugh:

    I'm not sure how in the area works for MSTP. I heard from my MD/PhD classmates, there are only three interview dates for MSTP applicants, and the first batch of MSTP applicants interviewed on the week of the 5th, so they probably couldn't accommodate you in time.

    I actually said I would be in town just before the last interview date for MSTP, but maybe they're still evaluating my batch. Who knows. :luck:

    Open file for both! Both of my interviewers (faculty and student, although some people have two faculty) were very familiar with my application and had read the whole thing

    OOS but I live in NYC. Cornell is private, though, so they don’t have preference for IS vs OOS.

    I *think* they only want post-II updates-- I only saw instructions for doing so after I sent in my thank-you notes, where it says to email them back at that address

    FYI, in my complete email it says:
    "You may send us occasional, substantive application updates if appropriate. Please send any such updates to [email protected], attaching your update as a Word or PDF file with the file name in the following format: lastname_firstname_AAMCID_ date. You will receive a confirmation email. Please do not include other queries or information in the email; questions should be directed to our main email address."
    It looks like they do accept pre-II updates for whoever is interested.

    So if we send a pre II update do you think we should send it to that email address as well? Thanks in advance!

    II yesterday, sent my order of preference for interview slots immediately, but still no response. They said they'd respond in 1 business day. Anyone else in a similar situation?

    Does anybody know if Cornell will take additional letters of recommendation, and if so, how they should be sent in?
