    Very good chance I think! Remember that essays are super important, and writing about why the hotel school and how you will utilize their resources is key :) (Another tip-be yourself in the essay-of course it must be well written but you do not need to try to sound smarter by using crazy big words for example). They see through this. Also, good advice that I have heard was that when they are reading the essay they should be excited for the chance to meet you the following year. Also you have taken a lot of clubs which is great, but you should talk about the meaning of doing all those clubs-even better would be to have a couple themes with why you chose certain clubs eg. to show leadership. What you don’t want is for it to seem like you took those clubs to just fill up your resume. You have great scores and gpa, I think you just need to showcase your application in a smart way like I mentioned above! Good luck, let me know if you get in!-from a Cornell reject (who made these mistakes) to accepted transfer student ;)
