Can I get in ED?

<p>I am going for Cornell (Electrical and Computer Engineering) ED. Can anyone please let me know what you think my chances are. I will not list my life story, but enough for you guys to judge me.
670 M
710 V </p>

<p>SAT II: (will know thursday, estimates below)
Math IIC: 700+
Chemistry: 700+
Writing: 500+(not sure at all about writing)</p>

Internship with Citigroup Global Markets
Random clubs / internships </p>

<p>My dad (deceased while I was 5) graduated from Cornell, so I have legacy. I interviewed with an alumni who will write a positive recommendation for me.
My GPA freshman year was 3.3, my most recent GPA at the end of junior year was 4.6(big improvement). I was told by a few people I have a good shot at ED, but I am curious to what you guys think. Thank you for looking over this.</p>


<p>I have a question. How did you land an internship at Citigroup Global Markets? I am interested in finance related internships also and found that interesting.</p>

<p>Not really sure what your chances are though :(. But thanks anyways.</p>

<p>It would help a lot if you're a minority.</p>

<p>I do not have that advantage</p>

<p>you have a huge grade - 748 students???</p>

<p>yes sir. Anyone have an opinion of my chances?</p>

<p>Mike, I think you have an outside shot regular admission, but I can't see it ED. Class rank is out of range (90% of engineering class is in top 10%) and the math SAT would be in bottom 5% in engineering. You really need to get the math SAT up and kick butt this fall for regular admit possibility.</p>

<p>corharcol, could you evaluate my chances?
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Corharcol, from what I hear ED admission has a much higher % chance than RD. RD are all the kids applying to all ivys with 1600s and valedictorian.</p>

<p>The percentage admits ED is higher than RD, especially at Cornell, because there is, with very few exceptions, a guaranteed high yield and a chance to shape your class. As a result ED admits are sometimes not as statistically "gifted" as RD's but this is changing as adcoms become more sophisticated and better predictors in this process. The statistics of the ED admits are still, however, within the same range and the evaluation I shared included ED's and those RD's who are attending, including legacies, URM's, women (who have a slight advantage in Engineering School), and prospective varsity athletes. Again, I don't mean to be harsh, but you have to get that Math SAT up to have any realistic chance at Cornell.</p>

<p>are asians considered minority?</p>

<p>Gosh, no. I only hope that the playing field has become level after years of anti-Asian bias.</p>

<p>anti-Asian bias, please amuse me with more</p>
