    S20 will be applying to Cornell ED. Engineering (chemical, eventually). 3.975 UW, 4.6 W GPA, two varsity sports all four years (one team is regularly top 10 in state); played both sports since he was 6; minor inconsequential interest from couple coaches; attends a very music-focused HS, is first chair for his performance band instrument (highest rated performance band in state), and section leader for marching band (NOT highest rated band in state, but is gigantic); a few state awards for his instrument, but I think they hand those out like candy. A few minor academic awards (again, handed out like candy). 1510 SAT (790 math, 720 EWR); 790 on both Math 2 and Chem SAT II. Four AP 5’s in STEM classes. No other consequential EC’s. No leadership or regular volunteer efforts. Works residential construction during all breaks for past 3 years. Knows how to install plumbing.
    Quiet, typical teenager. Is generally nice to his sister. Always nice to the dog and cat. Researched colleges to death and, no doubt about it, Cornell is THE ONE. Fully acknowledges long shot nature of this decision, and is fortunately very pleased with his safety, too.
    Fall sport started yesterday. Decisions have been made for apps. Essays written. Here we go. Next stop, Dec 15th-ish.

    I'll be applying ED too. The deadline is already frightening me - especially with subject tests included.

    Hey! I’m applying to SHA Ed as well. I believe that the acceptance rate for ED is around the high 20’s. Good luck, hopefully we both get in.

    HSHB is a hard major. Your GPA looks about right, but the SAT is average for Cornell, and HBHS students come in with stellar profiles. If you think you're ready then apply, but just be forewarned about the test score

    To each of you-please do your authentic research into the climate and culture of any university to which you apply (PARTICULARLY BINDING ED). Do your homework and learn about the community to which you may be joining. Collaborative? Competitive? Welcoming? Angsty? Rigorous? Agonizingly rigorous? Ask about the mental health issues facing the campus as a whole. Please think long and hard before you apply binding anywhere until you have spoken to YOUNG alumni who can accurately speak to today's climate at respective colleges. Please think about what you want out of your college experience, well above-and-beyond brand name (which may come at a dear cost if you are attending just for the name). You can get a better glimpse into the culture of a university if you genuinely ask current students, or recent graduates, if they are pleased or regret their choice, and why. As seemingly silly as it sounds, ask current students if they are happy/content more days than not. Are they stressed out more days than not? If so, ask if they are stressed to the point of burning out. Are they energized by their time there, or are they overwhelmed by sustained competition and load? Older alumni of a university, simply due to changes that naturally occur over time, can't speak as accurately to today's climate. Make sure you know what the weather entails. If you have not first-hand experienced it, ask what it is like to go without sun for weeks on end. Know about the nature of upperclassmen housing and the competition in getting housing over a year in advance due to lack of space. These are issues many universities face, and most are working to rectify such issues at some point in the future in their short & long range plans. University "brand names" are alluring, and often legitimately worth the costs, but please go in as well-informed as you possibly can.
