Yes, Cornell was by far my favorite school that I interviewed at, although I do have one more interview at UCSF next week. Honestly when I was at Cornell I had a very distinct intuitive feeling that it was the right place for me.hey andy! so is Cornell your top choice or do you have a secret burning passion for another school? It's okay we won't tell Cornell hehe

Gift Establishes Ronald P. Stanton Clinical Cancer Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center
NEW YORK (Feb. 11, 2009) NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital announced today that it has received a $50 million commitment from noted business leader, longtime supporter and Hospital Trustee Ronald P. Stanton. The gift will establish the Ronald P. Stanton Clinical Cancer Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, strengthening and expanding the Hospital's ability to provide patients with the very best cancer care.
"Philanthropic support for our Hospital's clinical and research programs is always important, but never more so than in these uncertain financial times. We are grateful to Ron Stanton for his outstanding record of support and generosity over many years, and for his latest gift that will do so much to enhance care for cancer patients," says John Mack, chairman of the Board of Trustees of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
Mr. Stanton has a long history of support for NewYork-Presbyterian. In total, he has contributed $75 million, mostly geared to the advancement of cancer care. His most recent philanthropy will help enhance the Hospital's radiation therapy capabilities by making possible the purchase and installation of state-of-the-art equipment, such as new linear accelerators. This new technology delivers radiation with amazing precision, while minimizing, even eliminating, damage to healthy tissue. The gift will allow for the creation of a cutting-edge infusion center with technologies including fast-track chairs for injections and apheresis chairs for whole-blood donations. It will also help recruit world-class physicians in various cancer specialties for further expansion of clinical programs and research initiatives.
His leadership has also helped make possible the modernization of the Hospital, including construction of the Greenberg Pavilion at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, the recruitment of cancer-related clinicians, and the establishment of an endowment for the Hospital's Lung Cancer Center. He has also supported rehabilitation medicine and the Iris Cantor Women's Health Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, as well as urological fellows at Weill Cornell Medical College. Mr. Stanton joined the board of New York Hospital in 1983. And in the decade since the completion of the merger with The Presbyterian Hospital, he has been an active member of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Board of Trustees.
"NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is an enormous asset to the greater New York community with its outstanding staff and leadership," says Mr. Stanton. "It is a pleasure to help it carry out its mission by supporting the clinical cancer program. I hope that this contribution will encourage others to offer their financial support to the Hospital as well."
"A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating for patients and their families. This remarkable gift will help our Hospital keep its promise to provide the best available treatments in a comforting and compassionate environment," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "While the number of Americans dying from cancer has started to decline, there remains much more work to be done, and NewYork-Presbyterian will not stop fighting the war against cancer until it is won."
Mr. Stanton is the founder and chairman of Transammonia Inc. The company trades, distributes and transports fertilizer materials, liquefied petroleum gases and petrochemicals. Mr. Stanton has generously supported numerous educational and cultural organizations. In 1982, he received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Yeshiva University.
NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell is a leader in cancer treatment, with accomplished programs across the clinical spectrum, notably including the Weill Cornell Breast Center; the Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health; the Center for Lymphoma and Myeloma; the Leukemia and Myeloproliferative Disease Center; and the Robert M. Ellsworth Ophthalmic Oncology Center.

thanks! wow so u must be anxious to know more..... i know i would bethe december acceptance package wasn't a package-- it was just a letter (not that i'm complaining!) it was just the official letter, a list of technical standards, and the student reply form. when i visited the admissions office post-acceptance, they said they'll send us more information in March when they send out the bulk of the acceptances. No other paperwork since then!
Good luck to you!

Wow...I'm really excited!! All the hard work has finally paid off and I can now relax...well for now anyways, haha!!
It is most unusual, and sending out non-rolling acceptances is gonna cause a lot of people a lot of stress. Congratulations to all who heard back today!hey all,
sorry for intruding, but i was wondering if you guys had some insight into cornell's admissions process. i just spoke to the office and they said that today was NOT the last batch of acceptances to be sent out and that they're in the process of making decisions. do you guys think this is true or that they're just saying that? i'm so confused though! they've never sent out decisions this early so i'm hoping and praying that this isn't the last batch.
