Hey, did anybody else get waitlisted at CALS? What can I do to improve my chances of getting in?
Here's what I had for my "stats"
Student Council, NHS officer, 200+ service hours at cancer hospital for children, 3 sport varsity athlete (all star in 2), National Merit Commended Student, 4-year choir member (officer senior year), 98 average (number 10 in class at all boys prep school) and 1430 SATs
I always thought that waitlist is crap shot. Sometimes a college might not even use the waitlist. That is what happened to JHU last year. But the year before JHU accepted 160 from the waitlist. It different every year, it's so unpredictable. So that is why I think it is a slim chance.
Oh yeah, for those waitlisted at Cornell, can you post other colleges you guys have been accepted to?
Anyone know if engineering accepts a lot of people off the waitlist compared to the other schools. I've heard of a lot of people getting into MIT and waitlisted at Cornell, that would probably eliminate some people off the waitlist.
