Check Status

Thank you for applying to Cornell Law School! We appreciate your interest in our law school and have created this website page to keep you better informed about your application status. Because of the high volume of applications, emails, and telephone calls that the Admissions Office receives, we ask that you use the Applicant Online Status checker to monitor your application status.

How to Use the Applicant Online Status Checker System

You will receive an email from our Admissions Office acknowledging the receipt of your application along with a user name and password. The first time you log in, you will be prompted to change your password for future use. Please keep your username and password in a safe place.

If your username and password are misplaced you are welcome to call us at (607) 255-5141 or email us:

**If you have applied and have not yet received an email from our office after several days confirming that we have received your application, please contact our office so that we can check the email address that we have in our system to verify that it is correct. This is crucial so that you can receive notification emails from our office in the future.

How the Status Check System Works

On your Applicant Online Status page there will be a current status displayed that will tell you what is currently happening with your application. At the top of the page there will be a message that will provide more detail about your status. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
