My ECs however are very weak and one dimesional for I have always been lazy and showed lack of compassion for almost everything.
ECs: Select Choir, Spring Musicals, All-County Choir, All-State Choir, participation in various other choruses, sang at Carnegie Hall before.</p>

<p>I am an Asian girl who comes from what would be considered a high-income household. I am in-state. I'm aware Cornell does show favor to in-state students and gives them more substantial aid. I go to a very good public high school where the acceptance rate into Cornell is over 40%.</p>

<p>I can’t seem to edit this post, but I also tutor low-income children for free and the summer of my freshman year I volunteered at a senior rehabilitation center near my home.</p>

<p>I’ll give you an honest chance.</p>

<p>3.86 GPA is kinda decent, but, your SAT score is very so-so. You class rank is also difficult - most of the ivy league basically need top 10%.</p>

<p>ECs are very important, and you seem to be lacking them. But, apparently your HS has a 40% rate for Cornell, so you never know. </p>

<p>I think maybe a low-mid reach?</p>

<p>The lack of ECs are going to hurt your chances, it is a reach…</p>
