<p>I can't really comment on your chances since I don't even go to this school, I'm trying to get in, like you.</p>

<p>But if critical reading and writing aren't your thing, then make them your thing- that's my advice for all the high school kids. You're going to be writing essays for the foreseeable future anyways, so why not go in for extra help after class and do all the little things to make yourself a better writer? Being able to write is probably one of the most important tools you will need in today's society. And a biology major is still going to be writing a ton of lab reports and reviewing abstracts and stuff like that. It will benefit you soooo much in the long run and open so many doors. Trust me.</p>

<p>I think that Cornell is a high reach for you, esp. if you are applying to CAS at Cornell. Your class rank, SAT, and ACT scores hurt you alot in the ultracompetitive applicant pool at Cornell.</p>

<p>work on your ACT! i did over the summer and it really paid off. keep the faith and just work hard.</p>

<p>yeah I went from a 28 to a 25... , but then to a 31! So def. keep trying on the ACT.</p>

<p>well you play football =]</p>

<p>Your rank and SAT are going to kill you.</p>

<p>ummm....got any national awards?? It'll be the only thing that can save you if you don't want Cornell to be a high reach>.<</p>
