Hello, I am an international student from Hong Kong SAR, China.
I applied for Cornell Engineering School as my intended major and Arts & Science School as my alternate major.
The best SAT I score by January delivered to Cornell:
Reading 680, Writing 750 (essay 12), Math 800, Total 2230
SAT II score in November:
Physics, Chemistry, Math II all 800s.
Class rank is about 10%~15%, I'm not quite sure.
I checked the admission data of Cornell engineering school online, it seems to me that writing score is not considered?
It's depressing for me, as my CR is only 680 and W is better than expected 750. Math is 800 though, but there should be a pile of applicants with 800 since it's engineering after all.
My extracurricular is commonplace though. I only joined the school team for English and Chinese debate and some local tournaments without any decent ranks, and also a vice-chairperson of a small school club about philosophy.
Please evaluate my chance for Cornell. Thank you.
