Chance me at Colgate Regular Decision?

Hi! I am currently a Junior in high school, and am seriously considering attending Colgate University if accepted. I would likely apply to Colgate Regular Decision, as I am probably going to apply to another school (Cornell) for Early Decision. If I don't get into Cornell, Colgate is my 2nd choice. Any insights you have into my chances of getting accepted by Colgate would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi. I am currently an admitted Colgate University student for the class of 2024. Firstly, I want to congrats you on the high academic and extracurricular standing you have achieved. I want to remind you that Colgate University offers Early Decision 2 as part of its admission plan, which means if rejected or deferred by Cornell( I hope not), you can apply to Colgate with ED2 if you're sure that Colgate is your second favorite. Colgate University has an acceptance rate of 38% for Early Decision compared with 21% of Regular Decision. Applying early can significantly increase your chance!
    If you can maintain a high standing in GPA, I believe your chance is high. I would personally suggest you retake the ACT as 31 will place you on the lower 25% among admitted students. (Colgate's ACT middle 50% is 31-34)
    Hope you the best of luck! If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me (my email:[email protected])
