Question by Brian K: Do I have a good chance of getting into Cornell?
My SATs are my only weak point, but I am great in every other aspect
550 R 620 M 550 W= 1720 total I’m taking the ACT in April and the SAT again in May
4.0 unweighted GPA, 4.8 weighted GPA
Varsity Wrestling (2 Years), Golf (1 Year), Badminton (1 Year)
Co-Founder of the Young Democrats Club (1 year)
DECA (State-Qualifer) in Business Management and Administration states is in 3 weeks (1 year)
Model UN (1 Year)
Speech and Debate (1 Year)
Scholar’s Academy (2 Years)
National Honors Society (1 Year)
Collecting Soda Tabs (250 community service hours)
Helping the Elderly (20 service hours)
Young Democrats (24 hours)
Bank Internship (this summer, assumed to be at least 100+ hours)
Helping the Mentally Handicapped (this summer at my synagogue, at least 100+ hours)
The reason that the oldest stuff is 2 years is because I’m a sophomore at the moment, I’m skipping my junior year and I’ll be a senior next year (is that a plus or minus to colleges??)
I pretty much take all AP and Honors classes except for PE and Weight Training (for wrestling) My APs are World History (last year, got a 4), AP European History (this year), AP Human Geography (this year), AP Biology (next year), AP Literature (next year), AP Psychology (next year), and AP American History (next year).
I plan on applying early decision as well, it’s the only college that I will apply early decision.
I’m pretty qualified in every aspect, do you think that will overshadow my mediocre SAT score?
I’m also multilingual (English, Spanish, Hebrew), don’t have a father (since before I was born), and have a low income.
