    Cornell's CoE is extremely competitive. It's a high reach at least until you pull up those SAT II scores.

    I'm going to study Barron's hard before the next test date. Hopefully I will do well >.<

    It is high reach even if you raise up your Math score for following reasons:

    1. Regular Decision
    - Lower rate, more applicants, super applicants
    2. CoE
    - really selective
    3. Below average ECs
    - Assuming those you listed are your ECs, It is way below average.
