Chance me please (i am applying early decision)

<p>Hi I am applying ED to cornell from a competitive school in the bay area (CA)</p>

<p>SAT: 2220 (1500 math+ reading)
math 780
reading 720
writing 720
GPA: 3.67 Unweighted
AP: Spanish 4, Statistics, Biology, AB Calculus</p>

<p>I had a 3.8 gpa unweighted until junior year where my finals grades dropped all of my borderline As to B+s .. so my gpa dropped also</p>

<p>EC: Indian Classical Singing (7 years)
Piano (8 years)
Internship at Pharmaceutical company ( 2years)
Track , Cross country (2 years)
Red Cross club (3 years)</p>

<p>I am also not sure how to include this; I have been in choir for four years and participated in the advanced vocal groups (that are audition based) which meet after school for four years as well</p>

<p>thank you! I definitely think my gpa is hurting my application but I would love to go to Cornell. I want to major in Biology in CALS.</p>

<p>You are a competitive applicant. Don’t screw up your essay and you should be fine.</p>

<p>Your GPAs hurting a bit, but the rest is decent.
Are you URM?</p>

<p>no i am indian which worries me with all of the other stronger candidates</p>

<p>what;s your class rank or percentile?</p>

<p>My school does not rank</p>

<p>Your GPA is on the low side and that will significantly impact your chances. Especially the downward trend is concerning. How does your GPA compare to those in your school who have been accepted to similar caliber schools? If favorable, then your chances are still decent, if not, I’d have to label you as unlikely.</p>
