Hi all, I am currently a rising senior and wanted to gauge my stats right now to see if I could get into Cornell University. My goal is to be accepted into Cornell's undergraduate school of business, and was wondering how I stack up to others who got accepted into Cornell.

I plan on applying binding early decision to Cornell, so that may increase my candidacy.

Personal:
-I am an Indian male with parents who both have doctoral degrees (not sure how this factors in but thought it best to include
it anyway)

Stats:
-SAT: 1530 (took it once, no superscore) 760 RW 770M
-GPA: 4.5
-AP Scores:
Human Geography - 4
Euro - 4
Pending: APUSH, Calc AB, Comp Sci Principles, Physics 1, Spanish Language and Culture, Microeconomics,
Macroeconomics.

Extra-Curriculars:
-Part of School Band (Percussionist)
-Formed my own band (we play at nursing homes for free for senior citizens)
-DECA Vice-President
-Placed as a state finalist for DECA
-Stock Club Treasurer
-Am a member in NHS, National English Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta
-Volunteer with a cultural organization
-Interned at a local college for a bio-fuels program
-Won a nationwide contest and lead a team of high school students to India on a 2-week service project to help raise
awareness about nutrition

College Essays: Working on them currently, plan on using my two week service project to India as a main talking point.
Letters of Recommendation: I know I will get outstanding letters of recommendation from my guidance counselor and my DECA adviser, plan on getting one from an English teacher who I have a great relationship with as well.
