How advantageous is ED at Cornell for international applicants with no hook?

<p>Hmm, that pretty much is my question. Thanks. </p>

<p>PS
[Just want to clarify the 'ED advantage for urms, legacies etc, not for others']</p>

<p>Hello? Any input, whatsoever?</p>

<p>"About a third of the first-year class comes to Cornell through early decision. Because enthusiasm for Cornell is considered a plus, early decision applicants stand a better chance of gaining admission."</p>

<p>Just make sure you don't need FA...</p>

<p>I was under the impression that they release you from the bond if you're not able to pay? If the financial aid they offer is inadequate that is, even after you've done all you can.</p>

Why a no to FA? I thought it was needblind towards international applicants. That's what it says on the application..</p>

That's true. You can get out of the bond, by stating the finaid is inadequate.</p>

Because it's really difficult to get financial aid for international applicants/students.</p>
