I was wondering if anyone would spare their time to give me chances for admission to Cornell Arts and Sciences. I want to study Economics at Cornell. I am a Caucasian male from the west coast (who attends a boarding school)and Cornell is my first choice school. I'm planning on applying Early Decision in the fall.
Class Rank: School does not rank
SAT II: I'm going to take these two in the fall: US History and English
>Selected for IB Student Council by my teachers (10 students out of 120 IB students)
>Awarded the Junior year "Scholar of the Year" by my teachers
>Elected as a "Student Senator" for two years
My GPA is low but it has a good trend. It was around a 3.8 freshman year, a 3.6 sophomore year and a 4.0 junior year. As you can tell sophomore was a difficult year for me, it was my first year at boarding school. Junior year I really challenged myself and I took 4 AP/IB classes (my school combines them): AP/IB US History, AP/IB English, IB SL Physics, IB ITGS. In addition I took TOK (Theory of Knowledge) and Chinese 1. I'm taking Chinese 2 over the summer to meet Cornell's language requirement. I know that I can get good recommendations from this year, a lot of my teachers really liked me. My counselor also seems to like me a lot.
