When Cornell University officials announced in April that more than 20,000 students would not be admitted to the school’s prestigious College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the news drew a national outcry.
Some faculty and students questioned the decision and said the decision would hurt the school.
But on Thursday, Cornell announced that it would admit the remaining 2,700 students on campus, and it has suspended admissions.
The decision comes as a blow to some Cornell students, who were not allowed to enroll in classes until next spring.
But others are eager to find out what happened.
