<p>I am applying to the school of agriculture.
wanting to be a business major.</p>

<p>i know my hours sound ridiculous to some people, but please advise me on what I have, and what I can do to get into Cornell, my number one choice, since 6th grade.</p>

<p>Your stats are good....but keep in mind AEM is very competitive. There are about 95 seats for freshman (although that number goes down to 70 b/c of recruited athletes...a quote from a CALS adcom member). Are you an NYS resident?</p>

<p>no i live in tn, but wow, only 95 seats? doesnt cornell accept around 3000ish freshman each year?</p>

<p>Cornell as a whole has freshman class of around 3000....but that includes all the majors in all undergraduate colleges. AEM likes to keep the department small to enhance faculty/student interaction.</p>

<p>the only thing you need is a good essay and you are all set.
Are u ED or RD? Also, does your school send a lot of people to cornell ?</p>

<p>AEM is required to have a certain overall faculty/student ratio for it's AACSB accreditation. I never heard that they save 35 slots for incoming Freshmen athletes. Did you speak with Ann LaFave? I say this, because unless the information comes from her (Director of Admissions - CALS), I think it should be checked out for accuracy.</p>

<p>my school sent 25 kids out of 500 to an ivy last year, and i'll be doing ed</p>

<p>I'm not posting names on this forum, but the information did come from someone on the CALS admissions committee and was discussed following an information panel.</p>

<p>Dewdrop - just to clarify, this was said by someone who sits on the CALS admissions committee or was it said by someone on the panel who might be misinformed?</p>

<p>Tahoe -- Most of the majors of Cornell athletes are posted on</p>

<p>Do the math.</p>

<p>CayugaRed: Thank you for the lead. On a quick glance at Men's Lacrosse and Hockey, I could only find what colleges they attended, and not their majors. Do you have a better link than this? I've pulled up Lacrosse as an example of what I was able to find: Cornell</a> Athletics</p>

<p>Yikes. I admittedly haven't scoured through the profiles in a while, but they used to list the major. Now it only seems to be the college. Needless to say, Dewdrop's source seems to be in the ballpark. It's definitely a non-trivial amount.</p>

<p>Actually, I stand corrected, you need to look in the media guide.</p>

<p>Here it is for men's basketball. Five of the seventeen players are in AEM.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>What I love most is going to the Harvard Cornell football games in Cambridge and looking through the Crimson roster. Almost every single player studies economics.</p>

<p>And I just counted 16 AEM majors among the 'featured' laxers:</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Only four on the hockey team.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I'll note that the hockey team has a pretty good rep on campus for being serious students. Schaefer makes certain that they do all the work that is expected of them, and often, Cornell's best players are also some of the better students off the ice as well.</p>

<p>Same for the lacrosse team. I was a TA for ILR stats my senior year, and Mitch Beslisle, who was named Defensive Player of the Year by the NCAA, was by far the best student in my section. Cornell athletes typically aren't at the bottom of the barrel in terms of academics. There are always some kids where you have no idea how they ever got into Cornell.</p>

<p>The 'General Studies' and 'Interdisciplinary Studies' majors in the Ag school can definitely raise some eyebrows.</p>

<p>Glad to see you're still so passionate about Cornell. I particularly like your well researched replies to muertopueblo on another thread! I do know that many athletes in CALS choose AEM and Communications as majors, but I am not aware that they hold back slots for them. I might make a phone call... not sure I care enough... I do care when I see misinformation on this website, which is why I questioned so hard. </p>

<p>I agree... let's not knock athletes... many of them are very smart and it's very challenging to balance a varsity sport and a hard academic load. Even the "easiest" majors at Cornell are not easy by most university standards. The poor men's lacrosse team couldn't even participate in Slope Day!</p>

<p>Tahoe...the information came from someone who sits on the CALS admissions committee.....a very reliable source I would say :-)</p>

<p>Thanks. I don't know if I am passionate, or just sickly obsessed.</p>

<p>^^maybe both? :-P</p>

<p>I appreciate it though...saves me the effort of looking up more info to back up my claims when I should be studying for my biochem final :-D</p>

<p>Dewdrop87: Go back to studying... then kick-back and enjoy the best time of your life... Senior Week and Graduation! :cool: Congratulations! </p>

<p>CayugaRed: Either way, much appreciated! Are you in law school?</p>
