How advantageous is ED at CORNELL for international applicants with NO HOOK?

<p>Is it true that it's advantageous only for URMS, Legacies, Staff kids etc, and not for others?
Please answer this, with respect to Cornell.
Many thanks.</p>

<p>Or is it actually a disadvantage applying to ED, coz mostly the urms, atheletes, first generation, legacies are accepted, AND it's only the really good students who apply ED, while average students apply in RD just for the sake of applying?</p>

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

<p>If you're qualified enough numbers wise, it will probably give you a boost. It shows Cornell is your top choice.</p>

<p>And chill. You can't expect replies within an hour.</p>

<p>Look at the Cornell ED 2014 results thread. If your stats are better than the unhooked there, you have a great shot.</p>

Thanks.. I actually did that before posting this thread. The results as you might know are very arbitrary. I couldn't really gather much information from that thread, so I started this one. Anyway, thanks man. :)</p>

<p>No, ED will give you an advantage. However, will your parents be willing to pay for the full cost of Cornell tuition should you be accepted under ED without good financial aid?</p>

Yes. Totally worth the investment.</p>
