Really nail the essaysNov 15 2005PreLaw and Legal
Really nail the essays. Having decent scores and grades are important, but what Cornell cares most about is the student's personality in question. They like to have a unique bunch of individuals and really look for the well-rounded students. Get involved and be creative!
ACT: 32 SAT: 1450 Female
I applied Early DecisionOct 16 2005Psychology
I applied Early Decision. I will admit that this helped my chances. However, since it is early decision and binding, you should fall in love with the school first, then propose. Not the other way around.
SAT: 1300 Female
Push. Try as hard as you canSep 07 2005Business - Management and Administration
Push. Try as hard as you can. Send 5 Recommendations. Do interviews. Make your essay and killer.

Really make the effort to apply yourself to theAug 04 2005Finance
Really make the effort to apply yourself to the application process. Make an effort to contact student advisors, the dean of admissions, alumni, if you can. I sent my dean of admissions a Christmas card. My name was not easily forgotten. Also, remember that your GRADES and SATS are the really important factors, bud don't forget that a typo in your application could make the end-reader disregard the 1600.
SAT: 1460 Female
