<p>As you have no real hooks, I would say you have a normal chance (20 - 30% (depending on RD/ED)). Your stats show that you are certainly well qualified to go (but so are most of the other applicants to CAS).</p>

<p>RD. Siemens not a hook?</p>

<p>I wouldn't define it as being a "hook", but it could certainly help if you are looking to go into a science related major (which you should mention in your interest essay). I think I was being a bit harsh saying you had a "normal" chance; alot of it depends on how well Cornell knows your high school and how many people from there have succeeded to get into Cornell before.</p>
