Will being from the south be helpful in the admissions process?

On the website only like 5-8% apply from there.

    I THINK being from somewhere not in the mid-atlantic states or new england is helpful. There are probably a few exceptions, but it IS diversity that they want!

    So should I apply ED? My stats are not that good.

    I am thinking about getting a job and maybe doing a summer session at Cornell to get to know the professors better and hopefully they can give me a recomendation letter. Do you guys think I should do this?

    Post stats?

    like around 1780 sat....top 10%


    would a summer session help? I would get to talk with the professors.

    If everything else is great then work on your SATs...you still have time

    I guess ED wouldn't hurt, but some places say that if you apply ED you can't apply anywhere else early (even action) so that might be a factor (and I don't know what Cornell's policy is)...
