I had good test scores and grades and wrote a personal statement from the heart. I was also very involved in extra-curricular activities as a high school student. Service is also very important to Cornell and will improve your chances of getting in.

To get in to Cornell, I got reasonably good SAT and ACT scores, made good grades throughout high school, and participated in all of the extracurricular activities that interested me so that I was a more "well rounded" student than just a list of classes and scores.

I had good grades, a good SAT score, and I wrote a pretty good essay. Getting in was not difficult.

If you want to get in, have good grades and a good SAT or ACT score. If you only have one or the other, write a killer essay and come in for an interview, if you can. That helps a lot.

SAT: 1420 Female

Good grades are important. But EVEN MORE important is being able to differentiate yourself in some way from the rest of the applicants. Creative leadership experiences and fascinating life experiences are desirable. Be unique -- be interesting.
SAT: 1370 Female
