I had good test scores and grades and wroteSep 17 2012Political Science
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.

Getting involved with some sports teams. I was on the cusp of either getting in or not and because i was on the XC team, the coach vouched for me to get accepted.
It was a breezeSep 15 2010Psychology
It was a breeze. Just apply and you will get in, judging by the average level of intelligence of this place.
Get an interview, the admissions staff is very personableFeb 19 2010Economics
Get an interview, the admissions staff is very personable and friendly towards people, and very non-bureaucratic. (I got a personal signed card from my admissions officer congratulating me on getting in) If you show that you are a very intelligent, interesting person, this will boost you chances by a lot.

Unlike what most people think, this school is notMar 19 2009Business - Management and Administration
Unlike what most people think, this school is not very hard to get in to. This year, the institution admitted far more students than the campus is intended to house, most likely with the intention of increasing the college's profits. Also, there is about 1 foreign exchange students for every 4 U.S. students.
ACT: 27 Male
