<p>I think that you are in the range with those scores, but there are a lot of competitive applicants in that range. Other factors will likely matter a lot for your app. </p>

<p>Regarding liberal arts: I think that it is difficult to show love for liberal arts through high school curricula, since students have less choice of what they can take and the curriculum is already pretty broad. Your ec's and essays are the key here. With ec's it is important to show breadth of interest, balanced with long-term commitment. In the essays it is crucial to demonstrate that you understand why you are applying to A&S in contrast to the other schools. Being interested in more than one field is the best way to do this (although you need to demonstrate these interests in other ways, otherwise it will not be believable). A&S is the only school at Cornell with a such a wide array of majors. It also has the College Scholar program and is the only school to offer the ability to double major. The other schools' majors are much more applied, more practical, and less attractive to the purists/intellectuals. </p>

<p>Hope this helps!</p>
