Accidentally Applied to Wrong College

<p>I accidentally applied to the college of Arts and Sciences (which requires SATII, which I don't have), when I meant to apply to the college of Agricultural and Life Sciences. </p>

<p>Would they let me email them, basically saying, "Whoops, I meant Agricultural and Life" and include the essay for that prompt instead?</p>

<p>I'd call them up/email them, I'm sure you are fine</p>

<p>Never understood how this is possible. You literally have to write an entire essay AND pick a major/concentration to talk about in the essay.</p>

<p>I honestly don't know anymore than you do about what they'd think but to me I think it looks really bad at this point to have them switch you.</p>

<p>Yeah, did you notice how you were writing your supplement essay for arts and sciences and not agricultural and life sciences? And I agree with nd09, I think it could hurt you if you call Cornell and ask them to switch. Unless your are an extremely strong applicant and expect to get in.</p>

<p>lol its a crazy mistake. 1000 people don't even pick a college each year! and guess what their acceptance rate is?! 0%... shocker</p>

<p>You probably didn't really want to go to Cornell that much anyway if you didn't pay close enough attention to get the school right. I wouldn't worry about it. Just focus on the school(s) you actually want to attend.</p>

<p>Dude . . . be nice!
You upload the essay then choose the radio button/scroll down and select the college you're applying to, and could easily make a mistake in that. As long as the essay is good, I doubt this applicant doesn't care about Cornell.</p>

<p>But yes, call immediately and try and have it changed. I'm sure it'll work out - and it's not very hard to do .</p>

<p>Haha, guys, let me explain: </p>

<p>I was originally going to apply to Agriculture and Life because I want to be a veterinarian, and I checked the requirements and they didn't require SATII's (which I don't have), and I was all set to write the essay for that one when my dad threw a huge fit about how Arts and Science would be better and made me change at the last minute. Neither of us checked (a stupid, stupid mistake, I know) if Arts and Sciences required SATIIs when Agriculutre and Life didn't, and I wrote the essay for that one and submitted it. </p>

<p>So then yesterday we realized our mistake... whoops. </p>

<p>So the mistake wasn't that I accidentally clicked the wrong box and wrote the wrong essay, just that I was stupid and didn't check if A&S required SATIIs when A&L didn't.</p>

<p>Well, I emailed them and they said they couldn't change it (and that A&S sounded better for me, though of course it's too late to take SATIIs). And I'm honestly not that bummed about it because it was my ultra-super-reach and I had about a one in a quadrillion chance of getting in, plus I'm not really sure I want to move all the way to Ithaca (I live in Oregon) for undergrad.</p>

<p>It's okay, I'll try there in four years for vet school. ;)</p>

<p>You'd fit right in. A good number of people from Oregon are undergrads.</p>

<p>Will they let you apply to Arts and Sciences as your alternate college? If you're applying for A&L right now, but sent in the A&S essay, that could work.</p>
