Just got done filling out and mailing in my Tuck Financial Aid application. It's due Monday, but I thought I'd just get it out of the way today. It was a terribly frustrating, weird and surreal thing to be filling out. I'm not even accepted and they want us to file. I would have felt a lot better filing and signing the document with my right hand if I knew an acceptance were in my left hand.
Since Cornell does follow a more logical approach of having us file financial aid documents only after getting an acceptance, I feel much better about that. I actually called Cornell yesterday and asked them when interview requests were going out. They said that interview requests would start coming out in the next couple of weeks and through to March 31 (the announcement date for acceptances). That's about as long as I can sing 99 bottle of beer on the wall 999 times.
