- Info above are passed by some of you personally to me, or via other students. If you are uncomfortable of being listed, please email me, and I will remove immediately. If you know of others/yourself who have gotten in, do let me know, and I will put up. I'm not limiting to any university, just that the info I get are as above.

Congrats to all of you who got in, especially many of you who are ReComers and my blog readers! Getting into university is just the first step. Hope that you would make full use of your opportunities there!

For those of you who got wait list, hopefully, you can turn it into an admission! Do work hard to submit additional material to the university.

For those of you who didn't get, hope that you won't get too sad. Lets hope for the best for other universities that you apply. In the end, it is how you make use of the university opportunity.

Good Luck for decision for Super Tuesday! I'm going to be awake at 5am Malaysia time to join in the fun! Hopefully, a large number of you guys will get into Cornell and will eventually decide to study there!

Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!
