Hello Everyone? I am probably going to apply ED for the Hotel School.
Personal:
Asian male
I go to a very white private school in Delaware. I moved my sophomore year from NJ
Suma Cum Laude (top 5% of graduating class)
4.17 GPA (Our school has a weird grading system out of 4.66)
Act: 31 ( Just took April)
AP Classes: Taking 7 overall (our school only offers 11 and only offers them to students during junior and senior year)
Extracurriculars:
3 sport varsity Athlete (Soccer, Basketball, Tennis)
I will be a captain in at least 2 of them
2x all-conference Soccer
2x state quarterfinalist in tennis
Part of Student Judiciary
Leader of the Asian Student Association
Fouding a fantasy sports club (if you couldn't tell I love sports)
200hrs volunteering at Ronald McDonald (hospitality) (I heard that work experience was v important)
I worked over my junior and senior year as a customer service representative for my dad's small business

Do I have a good chance of ED? The only thing that concerns me is my act score

    Are you going to retake ACT? Are you planning to interview? Can you explain in essay or resume how your interests in sports tie in to hospitality?

    Have you seen tips at prepscholar website? You need strong essays and should consider the interview. Be prepared to discuss what part of hospitality industry you are interested in. It's hard to say what your chances are with Cornell 's low admission rate. Has your high school sent students to Cornell? Are you reaching out to admissions rep? Planning to visit?
