<p>I would put Cornell & Northwestern in the Match category, but otherwise you have a handle on the application process. </p>

<p>Good luck. :)</p>

<p>I don't know about putting an Ivy in the match category, but I think you should place Northwestern in the match category.</p>

<p>Cornell acceptance rate was 30-31%, while it's ED rate was 40-41%. If not in the Match category, then at the bottom of the Reach sub-set. :)</p>
